On Monday, Comcast announced it's expanding its Internet Essentials Program to about a million low-income veterans.
Under the new program, low-income veterans will have access to the internet for $10 a month. The program also allows the veterans to purchase computers at a quarter price of what they cost in the store.
“These are people who stood up for our country,” David L. Cohen, the executive vice president of Comcast, said. “They put their lives on the line for America and we think it’s time that we stand up for them.”
