Governors State University (GSU) and the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association (SSMMA) are pleased to help promote a special educational opportunity for families in the south suburban region. Through Internet Essentials, a special program sponsored by Comcast, families are able to receive fast Internet access and a computer for greatly reduced costs.

Internet Essentials offers Internet access for $9.95 monthly and an opportunity to purchase a computer for $150 to households that have a child eligible for free lunch under the Federal Free Lunch Program. As part of this initiative, Comcast also offers free Internet training.
