We all love using the internet. Whether you're researching something, or just looking for entertainment you can always find what you need online. But each month when that bill shows up in your mailbox, the internet doesn't seem as fun for some reason.
Since there are only a handful of internet providers out there, competition is low. And that means these companies can usually charge more. You've probably noticed it yourself whenever you look at your monthly bill. The cost of your internet service seems to keep rising, and that can have a negative effect on a lot of people.
But AT&T is releasing a brand new program that could make a huge impact. The mobile provider has just announced a plan that would offer internet access for as little as $5 per month, for those who qualify.
The plan is primarily designed to help low-income families who are struggling to afford the current internet rates. Essentially, to qualify there needs to be at least one person living in the home who receives food stamps.
If you qualify, you can sign up for their basic plan that offers speeds of 3 megabits per second. This plan costs only five bucks. If you'd like faster speeds, however, there are still affordable options. Speeds of 5 or 10 megabits are offered in a plan that costs $10 monthly.
Even if you don't qualify for this new plan personally, you may know someone who does. And this new affordable option could make things much easier financially for them and their family. If you do know someone who could benefit from this plan, please click the buttons below to share this article.
