US Government begins offering assistance for qualifying internet bill costs

The US Government has begun a program offering aid to those struggling to afford internet costs in their own homes. This is part of the $900 billion December pandemic-relief package and is geared towards people that cannot afford internet at a time when much work and schooling has moved to the web. Those residing in tribal areas of the nation are eligible for an extra $25 off their bills.

Same people probably paying for NFL Sunday ticket package and other useless TV packages. How about you put it into libraries to get children out of unstable homes and and under the supervision of tutors of these underprivileged areas. Even if it is for a short period of time each day I'm sure it would help a lot more then just paying for their internet service.

Just the other day a cyber attack caused widespread fuel shortages in the southeast. The more we rely on the internet the more dangerous another attack like that becomes. I understand it's used for great things but eventually I fear it will be so big that when it fails it will crash the whole planet.
