Low Cost Internet & Computers

Who offers discounts on computers and home Internet service for low-income residents?
Four companies offer high-speed Internet in Seattle, all for around $10 a month, and some also offer a laptop computer for $99 or less.  With help from these programs, you can check your email, do your homework, search for jobs, pay your bills, watch videos, download music, and much more. The Solid Ground ConnectUp staff can help you understand your options, and also provide you with access to other tools they offer as well, such as cell phones, smart phones, home phones and voice mail.  See the chart below for contact and general info about each of these offerings.
