ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A national effort to bring internet to low-income families is paying off in Albany.
Tuesday, Dougherty County students showed how internet access through ConnectHome is helping them with their school work.
Albany is part of a 28 community pilot program that works with Mediacom, T-Mobile, and AT&T to provide affordable internet service in public housing.
"We're showing the parents who live in public housing what they can get, what they're looking forward too if they sign up to get the ten dollar a month service for their kids," said Ed Jennings, Southeast Regional Administrator for HUD.
More than 100 families in McIntosh Homes have internet service.
They're still collecting data from other Albany Housing Authority communities.
