ROANOKE, Va. – Comcast is expanding its Internet Essentials program to about 1 million low-income veterans.

The program also allows the veterans to buy computers at a quarter of what they would cost in the store.
Before this expansion, the program has already connected more than 6 million people with low-cost, high-speed internet.
