Program Will Provide Access to Discounted High-Speed Internet and Low-Cost
WASHINGTON,  March 21, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Digital literacy is critical to
America's economic future, and possessing these skills is now essential for
accessing the jobs and education opportunities that will enable current and
future generations to compete in the 21st  century workforce. Yet roughly 100
million Americans do not have a broadband connection at home, and 62 million do
not use the Internet at all. Today, nonprofit  Connect2Compete, launches a
national campaign, "EveryoneOn," a public awareness campaign designed to help
all Americans access free digital literacy training in their communities. Also
starting today, Connect2Compete will offer consumers access to programs
providing discounted high-speed Internet and low-cost computers.
