[Rogers] Connect for success expanded



Saw in the press release today Rogers have expanded their connect for success program to include low income senior that receiving GIS for Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.

It was first available to Toronto Community Housing residents, then later expanded to all Ontarians in rent-geared-to-income housing, and to families receiving the maximum Canada Child Benefit, as well as people in Newfoundland and New Brunswick in similar situations.

Now, the program will also be available to Ontarians receiving income support through Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), and for senior Ontarians receiving the Guaranteed Income Supplement, as well as those in Newfoundland and New Brunswick accessing similar programs. The expansion will add around 750,000 new eligible households.

The program provides internet for $9.99 a month at a speed of 25 mbps, and is now adding two more tiers for families that need higher speeds. Families can get 75 mbps for $24.99, and 150 mbps for $34.99, according to the spokesperson.

In the spring, Rogers will also add a 50-mbps option for $14.99, in line with the federal government’s targets, said Palvetzian, adding that she believes the private sector has an important role to play in bridging the digital divide.
