Obama Administration Selects 27 Cities For Better, Cheaper Broadband Internet

Do you live in low-income public housing and you have gripes about the quality of your internet connection? Well the Obama administration wants to do something about that.

President Obama and Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro announced a partnership with local communities and private companies to make broadband internet cheaper for residents of low-income areas and public housing.

Here is the list of the 27 cities (and one tribal nation) that the White House selected:

Albany, GA
Atlanta, GA
Baltimore, MD
Baton Rouge, LA
Boston, MA
Camden, NJ
Choctaw Nation, OK
Cleveland, OH
Denver, CO
Durham, NC
Fresno, CA
Kansas City, MO
Little Rock, AR
Los Angeles, CA
Macon, GA
Memphis, TN
Meriden, CT
Nashville, TN
New Orleans, LA
New York, NY
Newark, NJ
Philadelphia, PA
Rockford, IL
San Antonio, TX
Seattle, WA
Springfield, MA
Tampa, FL
Washington, DC.

For qualified low-income individuals, the internet bill could soon be as cheap as $9.95 for some cities, or even free.

The new plan, called ConnectHome, was debuted by Obama yesterday during a visit to Durant, Oklahoma.

“This is not something government does by itself,” Obama said. “I’m proud to say that folks around the country are stepping up to do their part. So businesses like Cox are providing low-cost Internet and devices. Best Buy is committing free computer education and technical support so that folks learn how to make the most of the Internet.”
