The EveryoneOn Program
EveryoneOn is a national nonprofit working to eliminate the digital divide by making high-speed, low-cost Internet service and computers, and free digital literacy courses accessible to all unconnected Americans. EveryoneOn aims to leverage the democratizing power of the Internet to provide opportunity to all Americans – regardless of age, race, geography, income, or education level. Through partnerships with local Internet service providers, EveryoneOn is able to offer reduced cost home Internet service in 48 states and the District of Columbia. They work with device refurbishers, so individuals and their families can purchase discounted devices, including $150 tablets and $199 laptops. Download their basic offer flyer here. Visit https://www.everyoneon.org/ for more details on internet service or devices.
Connect2Compete (C2C) is EveryoneOn’s program that provides affordable Internet and devices to low-income populations, including students and families that qualify for the National School Lunch Program. C2C is offered in partnership with leading telecommunication and cable companies including Charter Spectrum and Sprint Mobile. Eligible customers receive fast, affordable Internet for as low as $11.25 per month (plus tax). For most customers, there is no deposit required, contracts to sign, or installation or modem rental fees.
