AT&T on Wednesday launched a $100 million initiative to provide computer equipment, Internet access and training to 50,000 low income families. The three-year project, called AT&T Access All, is a partnership between AT&T and its charitable foundation with Habitat for Humanity and One Economy Corp., a nonprofit that brings technology to underprivileged families. Under the program, up to 15,000 households will be equipped with a computer, printer, software and Internet access. One Economy is also working to provide an additional 35,000 households with free Internet access and discounted computer equipment. The final component includes computer training for the low-income families.
