We’ve kept you posted on a growing list of public figures who have helped us get out the word about Comcast Internet Essentials, Comcast’s program to bring technology to families where children qualify for free- or reduced-price school lunch. Two sports stars are now featured in our latest PSAs promoting Internet Essentials. We’re grateful to both of them: Shawn Kemp and Jamal Crawford.
