The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin has published a new Internet Discount Finder.
Digital equity has become an urgent issue as schools provide more and more of their students with mobile devices to take home, while 20% of Wisconsin households do not have access to the internet. For many children and adults, the public library is the only source of internet access.
The Internet Discount Finder, created by the Wisconsin Public Services Commission, can help low-income households find discounted internet service. Discounts are as deep as 80%.
Note—the The Internet Discount Finder is not just for households with students. It is designed to help *all* Wisconsin families and residences get internet access.
