Rome City Partners with EveryoneOn to Offer Affordable Internet

10/27/2015

The City of Rome is pleased to announce a new partnership with EveryoneOn to increase Internet connectivity for low-income families.

The city recognizes that access to the Internet has become essential for communication, business and education and households that do not have access to Internet are disproportionately from low-income and minority communities.

By partnering with EveryoneOn, the City of Rome can now help families locate the best low-cost Internet service and computer offers available, in addition to locating training locations.

The service is accessible through the City of Rome Connected page located on the romefloyd.org website. Simply select “online services” in the website navigation and the City of Rome Connected page appears in the dropdown.

Computers for accessing the service are available at training locations and include the Rome-Floyd County Library and the Goodwill Career Center of Rome.

“We hope to help eliminate the digital divide through this partnership,” said Rome City Manager, Sammy Rich. “The power of the Internet is an opportunity that should be available to all.”

EveryoneOn is a national nonprofit who partners with local Internet service providers to attain affordable Internet options. They also work with device refurbishers to offer affordable tablets and laptops for accessing the Internet.
