On February 17, 2014, CTTAB sent a letter to Wave Broadband inquiring about low income Internet access plans. Other Internet providers have low income plans that qualify subscribers and offer plans as low as $10 a month for Internet access. While restrictions apply, these plans do provide an option for Seattle residents. For a full list of providers, please visit the City of Seattle Community Technology site.
On April 24, 2014, Wave responded with the following message.
The Cable and Broadband Committee will continue to work with Wave and community members on the characteristics of a low-income broadband plan.
