Broadband Internet for Every Resident

Veterans Manor offers broadband internet connection for every resident, included in the rent.

“As residents moved in we were surprised about how strong the desire was to be Internet connected,” said Joe Thomae, Veterans Manor Project Manager. “For approximately one-third of the new residents, their first action upon receiving their keys was to plug in and turn on their computers to verify Internet access.They didn’t hang up clothes, put food away or arrange furniture, they verified their Internet connection.

“We learned that often the barrier for a low income person is not having a computer, training or computer knowledge… it is the Internet connection.”
