BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – Across New England, families and people can take advantage of low-cost internet services and affordable broadband options to stay connected with loved ones near and far this holiday season.
“What makes the holidays special is connecting with the people you care about – and NECTA members are committed to making sure New Englanders can create lasting memories with their loved ones through world-class broadband networks,” said Tim Wilkerson, President of NECTA. “With modern technology, people are now able to call, video chat, text, send photos and more with friends and family no matter the distance – and at affordable prices. That is what it means, as our motto says, to connect New England.”

In addition to the above low-cost programs, the federal government is now providing historic support for broadband service plans. Thanks to the Affordable Connectivity Program, high-speed internet is available for as little as $0. To date, over 671,000 New England households have signed up for the ACP. NECTA members are committed to promoting ACP enrollment and advocating for public-private partnership solutions in order to increase broadband adoption for the people and families who need it most.
