Internet in this day and
time is essential to every household, but to many it is seen as a costly
expense. We do not believe that a person’s income should stop them from
having access to this important information source.
Wilco Electronic Systems
Inc. and Mobile Citizen have teamed up to provide low cost high
speed Internet to Philadelphia Residents. This new low-cost option, one of
several now in the marketplace, comes with a free wireless modem,
regularly priced at $100.
The cost for this plan
is $14.95 to install and $14.95 monthly.

What is great about the
Wilco option, is not only the price, but that it takes advantage of KEYSPOTS
all over the city.
“Wilco was there at the
beginning, when the Freedom Rings Partnership was conceived, and we were
there when the Partnership created the KEYSPOT brand for its current
initiative,” said Brigitte Daniel, Wilco executive vice-president.
Daniel emphasized that
it was natural for Wilco -- which focuses on a community-centered approach
to providing digital cable and satellite television -- to work with Mobile
Citizen, and to partner with Freedom Rings to leverage KEYSPOT learning with
broadband adoption in the home.
“Many of our customers
are the target audience of KEYSPOTS. They are going to these neighborhood
locations all over the city and learning about all the great things they can
do over broadband Internet,” Daniel said, adding “The next logical step is a
reliable, affordable option in the home. We are glad to be able to say to
KEYSPOT clients, if you take a few classes and want to do more in the
privacy of your own home – well we have a great option for you!”
To qualify for this
Internet option you must visit a KEYSPOT for Internet access or to take a
class. This includes the special KEYSPOT netbook program for Philadelphia
Housing Authority residents. Applicants cannot have had Internet service in
the last 90 days and must live in a coverage area.
