For seniors to have access to the
Internet is essential because without that they are left behind and in this
community here in Florida we have a lot of people that are from Haiti, Jamaica
well with the access to voice over IP it cost them nothing. You have to have internet
in order to take advantage of this situation. I used the internet for
communicating with friends and family and I have a friend in Jamaica who I communicate with.
I think it’s good for people to learn about the internet because most
communication is done by Internet now. I remember when I used to write letters or
send cards. We don’t do that anymore. When it comes to seniors and the
Internet they’re all afraid. They think it’s a gigantic monster of some sort. Well it’s
really not I’m learning to go on the internet I was
totally ignorant of the whole computer thing and other things terrified of it
I’m learning to loosen up a bit and lose the fear that I’ve had. So I’ve got around to using it
and use it for just about everything If I had the Internet, I could do lots of things that will help me,
keep me in my home instead of going out to do this again. I could even pay my bills.
There are lots of things I can do if I had the internet. It’s more than I ever thought that it could mean
to anybody because it means so much to me. Internet Essentials can
change everyone’s life, not just not just seniors just high school not just kids everyone’s life and comcast is able to
bring that Internet into their home at a minimal cost. And really what we’re
talking about the Internet it’s about improving their lives.
