Digital Divide Program - Offers Free Internet to Qualified Families

As part of the installation of a citywide wireless internet infrastructure, the City of Longmont received free internet service accounts to help bridge the digital divide for families that cannot afford to purchase this service. These free accounts are now being offered to low and moderate-income households in Longmont with children in middle school or high school.

In addition to the free Internet service some families may receive help to purchase the scrambler units needed to receive the wireless service in the home. There also may be help available for families that don’t have a computer through a partnership with the Jared Polis Foundation.
