One of the laws here in the United States , is that all internet providers must offer a low-cost internet service for people who can’t afford regular internet prices. The rules for each company can vary, so a person might qualify for one discount service, and not qualify for that same kind of service from a different company. As an example, comcast/Xfinity offers their service here for about $5-$10 per month, but to qualify, you have to be on an assistance program like welfare or food Stamps, and you also must have a child in school. So, a senior adult with no children would not qualify for the Comcast service, regardless of how low-income they are. On the other hand, the AT&T Access program will accept anyone who is low income and has a food stamp card to verify their income. If you are low-income, and live in the United States, it is well worth the time to browse the different programs and see what you can qualify for.
