From the Boston Business Journal:
Starry, a Boston-based startup internet service provider, has partnered with Denver Housing Authority to offer broadband internet to affordable and public housing residents.
Denver is just the second city to get Starry’s low-cost internet, following a pilot program in Boston. The pilot program launched in 2016.
“Starry has a simple mission: We think connecting people and providing broadband is good business,” said Starry CEO and co-founder Chet Kanojia.
He added that Starry believes that providing affordable internet means access to better education for children and more job opportunities for people.
“We are a bleeding edge, leading edge tech company,” Kanojia said. “You’re not getting leftover scraps.”
While Starry’s full-paid service is $50 a month for internet speeds of 200 mbps, Starry’s lower-priced service is meant to provide affordable high-speed internet broadband without having to jump through a lot of hoops. Rather than needing to go through additional credit or background checks, anyone who qualifies to live in one of the DHA buildings that has Starry Connect qualifies for the service.
