How to Get Internet for Less than a DOLLAR!

We’ve figured out how to get free Internet! Awesome, right?! We’ve found one program that is completely free and two more that can help you get Internet service for just a few dollars per month! Since Internet is just about essential these days, these programs are great for low income households.

In step one, you’ll choose a low income service. In step two, you’ll drive that cost even lower by applying for a $9.25 monthly subsidy through the Lifeline program. Easy, right?

THIS IS A TWO-STEP PROCESS.
You will not get the “after discount” price
UNLESS YOU APPLY FOR THE LIFELINE SUBSIDY!

Step 1: Choose a low income Internet service.

Fortunately, many major Internet providers already provide affordable Internet programs for low income customers. You can choose whether you’d like service through AT&T, CenturyLink, Comcast or other providers! Of course, not all services may be available in your area.

Here’s where the good and bad news begins. The good news is there are TONS of cheap Internet programs around the country! The bad news is that it’s getting very difficult to keep this post organized in a way that makes sense and is easy to use.

Here are the cheapest programs from the most popular Internet companies nationwide. We’ve ordered this list by price:

Here are the options from less well-known providers, in alphabetical order:

Here are even more ways to get free Internet (or low-cost Internet):

Step 2: Apply for the Lifeline subsidy.

Get $9.25 off your monthly Internet bill by applying for the Lifeline subsidy!

You qualify for this subsidy if you receive any of the following!

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka SNAP, Food Stamps, EBT)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Medicaid
  • Federal Public Housing Assistance
  • Tribal-specific programs
  • Income at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines
  • Veterans Pensions
  • Veteran’s Survivor Benefits

Once you get this subsidy, you’ll receive a $9.25 credit on your Internet bills. That may not seem like much…. but when you combine it with low income services that cost just $5-$15 themselves, that can give you internet service for less than $1 per month!

The catch? You can only receive ONE subsidy per household. If you’re already receiving it for your phones, you can’t use it for Internet also… but you can still keep reading this post to find out how you can get Internet for less than $20 per month!

Step 3: Save money on your Internet bill every month.

That’s all, folks! Please share this with anyone who can use it – and, if you know of a low cost Internet solution we’ve missed, please let me know in the comments!
