IdeaTek Empowers Kansans with Affordable Internet Access
In today’s digital world, access to affordable and reliable internet has become increasingly essential for individuals and communities to thrive. However, recent data from the Benton Institute for Broadband and Society reveals that more than one-third of eligible households have yet to apply for the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program, missing out on the benefits it offers.
This low-application rate calls for increased awareness and efforts to bridge the digital divide. At IdeaTek, we are committed to spreading awareness about the program and ensuring that no one misses the opportunity to stay connected. We believe in Internet Freedom™ for all and strive to make fast, reliable internet accessible to everyone. That’s why we offer the Affordable Connectivity Program to qualifying customers — FOR FREE.
Our goal is to ensure that students and families have the necessary technology for work, education, healthcare, and beyond. We recognize that internet access is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity for economic security and opportunity. Lack of broadband at home puts families at a significant disadvantage, and we are determined to change that.
Help us spread the word.
