HughesNet Gen5 plans have a range of affordable offerings to fit the satellite internet needs of residential and business customers. Each plan comes with 25 Mbps download speeds and 3 Mbps upload speeds. Residential Customers can get up to 50 GB of data per month and Business customers up to 250 GB.
There are three programs most likely to fit what you’re looking for. The first is Lifeline. Lifeline provides low-income Americans with discounts for their monthly phone, mobile, or internet bills. The second is the Emergency Broadband Benefit program. This program was started during the covid-19 pandemic to provide additional assistance to low-income families. The Emergency Broadband Benefit program gives a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase new internet-ready equipment as well as a monthly discount on your internet bill. The third program is ConnectHomeUSA. ConnectHomeUSA operates in 80 low-income communities around the US to help households with school-aged children get internet access.
There are also some provider-specific programs that we will cover below.
If you have at least one K-12 child at home and participate in SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or other similar programs, then you qualify for Cox low-cost internet. Cox low-cost internet only costs $9.95 per month and can be signed up for on the Cox website.
Any household with at least one member participating in the SNAP program is eligible for AT&T Access, a low-cost internet option for low-income customers. With AT&T Access, you get 10 Mbps internet for between $5-10 per month. You can apply for Access on the AT&T website.
Verizon partners with the Lifeline government program mentioned above to further reduce the cost of high speed internet. If you qualify for Lifeline, Verizon will take an additional $20 per month off your Verizon Fios internet plan.
Households that already qualify for government assistance programs (like SNAP), will qualify for Comcast’s Internet Essentials package. It comes with 25 Mbps download speeds, an option to purchase a basic computer for connecting to the internet at $149.99, home Wi-Fi, and free digital literacy training. Internet Essentials costs $9.95 per month.
