If last week it was Orange who launched its new Social Rate for beneficiaries of the Minimum Vital Income, now it is Euskaltel’s turn. The Basque operator, which recently announced its internet offer for students, has just launched ‘Internet Commitment’, a plan designed to provide Internet to households with fewer resources.
For a definitive price of 14 euros per month and free installation, this new rate offers Internet access through fiber with a speed of 100 Mbps. It is intended not only for families benefiting from the Minimum Living Income, but also for those who receive any similar benefit of an autonomous nature, such as the Income Guarantee Income of the Basque Country.
The first invoice is free
Euskaltel is now launching Internet Compromiso, an Internet access plan created to help those families with fewer resources, both so that students can continue their studies electronically, and so that family members are able to maintain close contact.
This new rate includes installation at no cost and a monthly fee of 14 euros per month (final price) with a 12-month commitment, although the first invoice is free for contracts made in the month of September. For that price, customers will have fiber optics at a speed of 100 Mbps, but the fixed telephone or any mobile line is not included (something that the Orange Social Rate does offer for 14.95 euros per month).
Unlike Orange’s proposal, Euskaltel’s Internet Commitment has a 12-month permanence commitment and does not include landlines or mobile phones.
The operator clarifies that, unlike Orange’s proposal, which is exclusive for beneficiaries of the Minimum Vital Income, the new Euskaltel Commitment Internet rate is also applicable to all those who receive any similar provision of regional scope, such as the RGI (Income Guarantee Income of the Basque Country). To hire it, you have to go to an operator’s point of sale or call 1717.
Furthermore, from Euskaltel they insist that it is open to collaboration with institutions and organizations of the social, educational, health and care sector, in case they are interested in having a service according to the needs of the population they serve.
