Related: Culture Forums, Support Forums# SAVED BY DU!!! (Going offline update)

A big, fat, sloppy hug for DU, and especially jmbar2 who had the info for my solution, for all your love and support!

I have contacted my soon to be new ISP and will be enjoying a smooth transition to that provider in the next week which means there will be no interruptions in my ability to access DU from my little hovel on the hill whenever I choose.

Thank you all so much, this is one of the things that makes DU great! There's always an answer and, usually, one of you have it!

Edited to add: Here's the link to the provider of choice:

(89,147 posts)Now I'm really looking forward to shipping rectum's stuff back, especially after our discussion this morning that didn't produce any acceptable results.

Now I can go about the rest of my day with a couple added simple tasks, have to scan a couple docs for the application, and that's about it.

Big sigh of relief.

(11,188 posts)after looking at about 10 pages, so to save others the work --

https://www.pcsforpeople.org/eligibility/

The 200% of federal poverty guidelines chart/table --

$30,120 for one, $40,880 for 2 family members,, $51,650 for 3... the table goes all the way out to 8 family members $105,440

On that page there is also a button to find the Area Median Income (AMI) in one's area. Interesting.

(89,147 posts)And look how long it took to solve the issue once I alerted the DU network! A big relief both mentally and financially.

(14,429 posts)I'm sure it would have gone much differently if I didn't have DU to offer suggestions. It's kind of an info/tech desert here.

#### Harker

(14,429 posts)When a question comes up, someone or someone else at DU always seems able to separate the wheat from the chaff with good spirit.

I've come to DU on a number of occasions with questions, advice, etc. and have NEVER been let down. Someone on DU either knows the answer to my question or knows where I can get it....

Again.....................SO HAPPY FOR YOU...............

DU ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

(89,147 posts)Thank you ever so much for that info, made my day and then some. And, apparently, others are glad to have that info too! You should get some kind of bonus for all the new traffic they'll be getting!

#### question everything

(48,131 posts)Starting at $15 per month

and there is eligibility requirement which is great, not for the ones who can afford the regular services.

https://www.pcsforpeople.org/eligibility/

and I like this

Please note, we do not require proof of citizenship.

#### 2naSalit

(89,147 posts)$60 for the modem purchase and $15/mo for the service thereafter so $75 to get started, $15/mo thereafter. I can afford that.

#### FarPoint

(13,007 posts)Sure beats your previous vendor....

I read the thread and there were good suggestions so I didn’t respond since so many smart peeps already had.

DU rocks!

#### 2naSalit

#### Niagara

(8,439 posts)That can help those who are down on their luck. I'm thrilled that you hang out here where you belong, 2naSalit!

#### 2naSalit

(155,036 posts)I might look into this service too -- I think my current provider is charging like $100/month! Ripoff....

#### iluvtennis

(20,218 posts)my 87-year old mom. Unfortutnately, they currently don't support California, but hopefully that will come.

Glad to have you here 2naSalit.

#### 2naSalit

(89,147 posts)I am kind of surprised they cover my area, honestly. It's a piggyback set up and they provide access through T-Mobile and rectum which both serve my area.

I am thankful like you wouldn't believe.

#### niyad

(116,265 posts)And may that information prove useful for others, as well.

#### Skittles

(155,036 posts)just curious but I'm wondering why you were not previously made aware of this program - seems like you should have been! I'm guessing there are many others who are not aware...........

#### 2naSalit

(89,147 posts)And I'm guess you're correct, probably not so many know about it. The closest brick and mortar is in Denver but they ship the equipment and the rest is handled through an account.

Glad it was offered up as a suggestion. I haven't completed the sign up but I plan on getting in motion by Monday, had some things come up today that distracted me from my mission. Doesn't seem like such an emergency now that I have a plan and a solution.

(89,147 posts)I wasn't leaving, just expecting spotty internet access for however long it took to find reasonable ISP rates. Telling my story here generated the answer in a very short time.

That's one of the reasons why DU is awesome.
