The Shelby County College and Career Center (SCCCC) chapter of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is working with AT&T to help inform Shelby County area residents about Access from AT&T, a new program designed to help make wireline home internet service more affordable for low-income households. The FCCLA students will host a sign-up event on February 9, 2017, from 3:30-6:00 pm at the Piggly Wiggly in Columbiana, to help make sure qualified individuals and community households are informed about and have access to the program.
Access from AT&T is available to households with at least one resident participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and located within the 21 states where AT&T provides wireline home internet service, which includes Alabama. Participating households will get the fastest speed tier available at their address: 10Mbps or 5Mbps for $10 a month, or 3Mbps, 1.5Mbps or 768Kbps for $5 a month.
FCCLA, the only Career and Technical Student Organization that primarily focuses on family, joins AT&T in recognizing that a home internet connection can change lives. From completing homework online to applying for a job to interacting with family and friends, a connection to the digital world is vital for all U.S. residents.
