Rogers announced on Wednesday its Connected for Success low-cost and high-speed Internet program has expanded its eligibility to more residents in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
Those that qualify for income support from Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program, now qualify for the internet program.
In New Brunswick, the Rogers internet program has expanded to those on the Social Assistance Program and Disability Support Program.
In Newfoundland, the program expands to new customers who receive financial support, either income assistance or disability benefits, says Rogers.
Seniors receiving the Guaranteed Income Supplement in all three provinces also qualify for the internet discount.
Rogers is one of numerous internet providers participating in the Government of Canada’s Connecting Families program, offering discounted internet.
“This last year in particular has shown us the vital role that networks and connectivity play in all of our lives. At Rogers we want to help ensure that no Canadian is left behind in accessing affordable Internet options,” said Joe Natale, President and CEO, Rogers Communications, in an issued statement.
The Rogers Connected for Success program offers internet with up to 25 Mbps download and up to 5 Mbps upload, plus 100GB of data usage, free installation and equipment rental for $9.99 per month.
