Rogers’ Connected for Success affordable internet program continues to get more Canadians online, recently partnering with its 150th non-profit housing provider and/or co-op. This means we are closer to bridging the digital divide for up to 150,000 households across our cable footprint in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
Launched in 2013, Rogers has invested in the Connected for Success program to offer low-income Canadians high-speed internet for $9.99 monthly, allowing them to fully participate in the digital economy. As a result, more than 13,000 Canadian households (and counting!) have signed up for the program.
To celebrate partnering with 150 non-profit housing providers, we checked in with Leon – a Toronto Community Housing tenant and one of Connected for Success’ first customers. Have a look at how Leon and his kids use the Connected for Success program to keep up with work, school and play.
Most recently, Connected for Success has partnered with Almise Co-Operative Homes Inc., Beech Hall Housing Co-Operative Inc., Forward & Community Development Co-Operative,
John Bruce Village Co-Operative Inc., and the Regional Municipality of Durham. We thank all of our partners for their continued support.
