Low-income seniors, families to receive easier access to high speed internet

Hundreds of thousands of low-income Canadians and seniors will soon have access to affordable high-speed internet.

The federal government has inked a deal with 14 internet service providers which will provide internet service for just 20-dollars a month.

Upload speeds and data allotment will increase above the previous plan introduced in 2017.

Families receiving the maximum Canada Child Benefit and seniors receiving the full amount of Guaranteed Income Supplement will be eligible for the program.
