Home Internet Discount Finder
|Having internet access has become an urgent issue as schools assign more and more of their students with personal, mobile devices to access classroom materials and productivity tools, however, 20% of Wisconsin households do not have this access available in the home. For many children and adults, the public library is the only source of internet access outside of the school day where these devices can be used.
The Internet Discount Finder, created by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC), can help low-income households find discounted internet service. Discounts can be as deep as 80%. Moreover, it’s easy to use: click on this Internet Discount Finder link, and enter a full home address to see if there are any providers in the area and learn about what different programming is offered and how to qualify. Some providers base qualification for internet discounts on participation in programs like Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Federal Public Housing Assistance (FPHA) or Section 8, the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), and other means-tested programs.
