Resource for Low Cost Internet Access

Source: National Cristina Foundation

The National Cristina Foundation is partnering with EveryoneOn to direct partner organizations and their respective populations served to an online source of low cost and no cost Internet access. In addition, this resource can be used to identify local computer training resources as well as sources for low cost refurbished computers.

NCF is in its 30th year of promoting technology reuse from its first life in business, corporations and homes to a productive second life with local nonprofits and schools.  Today’s computers, without access to the Internet, are only half of the solution.

EveryoneOn is a national nonprofit working to eliminate the digital divide by making high-speed, low-cost Internet service and computers, as well as free digital literacy courses accessible to all unconnected Americans. They aim to leverage the democratizing power of the Internet to provide opportunity to all Americans – regardless of age, race, geography, income or education level.

To locate providers of low cost Internet service and to determine your eligibility for such services, go to and enter information regarding your location as well as eligibility for related services.

Additional free online resources related to educational material can be found in the Resource column to the right. NCF thanks EveryoneOn for their efforts to eliminate the digital divide and to help Link Life to Its Promise.
