Eagle Communications announced Wednesday a new initiative helping low-income families access the Internet in 30 communities.

Connect2Compete provides low-income families who qualify for free lunches through the National School Lunch Program with Internet access at home for $9.95 a month for two years.

"Eagle Communications believes technology is one of the greatest tools students can have both in and out of the classroom," said Travis Kohlrus, Eagle Communications broadband division general manage. "We are also very aware that not all students have the same access to high-speed Internet services in their homes."

The program is fully funded by Eagle Communications, and no tax dollars will be spent for the program.
