“Internet access has become essential for Canadians – it’s a lifeline for staying in touch with friends and family and a critical tool for school and work,” said Peter King, Senior Director, Corporate Social Responsibility, Rogers Communications, in a press release. “These new partnerships will help us deliver high-speed internet to even more people so they can take advantage of all the opportunities in today’s digital economy.”
According to Rogers, “eligible families can enjoy 10 Mbps download speed, 100 GB of data, free installation, and modem rental for only $9.99 per month + taxes. No contract or credit check is required upon sign up.”
Rogers says there are currently 22,361 participants in the Connected for Success program.
Back in November, Rogers and Telus joined the Federal government’s Connecting Families program, which similarly offers low-cost, high-speed internet to low-income families.
