In total, up to 3,000 families in Poland will be able to benefit from access to the free internet package with speeds up to 150 Mbps. The initiative is driven by UPC Poland and the Polish Development Fund Foundation, in co-operation with the County Family Assistance Centers.

Robert Redeleanu, CEO of UPC Polska said: “Access to the Internet can reduce inequalities, and offer new opportunities for Polish citizens and their families. This year, we’ve expanded our support to individuals and communities by offering free high-speed internet access to teachers and healthcare professionals, as well as free coding lessons for thousands of children. So, I am proud to announce, that together with the Polish Development Fund Foundation, UPC Poland has launched “Internet For Equal Chances”, supporting large families in need with free unlimited broadband access for the next year, standing by one of our core values – Care“.

The “EInternet for Equal Chances” package reinforces UPC Poland’s commitment to support vulnerable communities, as well as frontline workers, during the COVID-19 crisis. Earlier this year, UPC Poland introduced a free internet offer for over 3,000 key professionals, including teachers, doctors, nurses, and paramedics, who were provided with free access to stable, unlimited internet.
