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 wireless modem, regularly priced at $64.00 plus tax. Payment Options Available.

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.
