Unafilliated Broadband Programs

There are currently no broadband options offered through the Lifeline program. However, there are programs offered by private companies that are available for Illinois residents. Please note that these are not government programs and UTAC is in no way affiliated with these programs.


If you are eligible for Lifeline you may be eligible for low-cost broadband service. AT&T and Comcast have low-cost broadband service available for participants in one of two programs. SNAP participants are eligible for AT&T’s low-cost broadband program, AT&T Access, and families with a child participating in the National School Lunch program are eligible for Comcast’s low-cost broadband program, Internet Essentials. Both programs offer home broadband for about $10 a month. Illinois Community College students who receive Pell Grants are also eligible for the Comcast program. Flyers and links to more information are below.
