From Los Angeles Daily News:
Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a new initiative Friday designed to deliver six months of free internet access to residents in four public housing communities across Los Angeles, making low-cost, high-quality broadband options available to 9,000 people in nearly 3,600 housing units.
The initiative stems from a partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Budget and Innovation, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, Starry Internet and Microsoft Corp., a city statement reported.
