Good news! Today, Rogers announced a new milestone for its pioneering Connected forSuccess program with its 300th housing partner.
Launched in 2013 and the first program of its kind inCanada, Connected for Success offers low-cost, high-speed internet to subsidized tenants and members of housing partners across the Rogers cable footprint inOntario,New BrunswickandNewfoundland. With 300 housing partners, over 200,000 households are eligible.
Eligible families can enjoy 10 Mbps download speed, 100 GB of data, free installation, and modem rental for only $9.99 per month + taxes. No contract or credit check is required upon sign up.
Rogers is also participating in the Government ofCanada’sConnecting Families initiative, which launched last month and offers the same service to eligible families who currently receive the maximum Canada Child Benefit. Connecting Families participants are randomly selected by the Government of Canada to participate in the program and receive a letter from the government with an access code needed to sign up for the program.
