Anyone have a good idea to get my grandma email on my tight budget?

Recommended Posts

She is 84 and sharp as a tack!


I would love to send her messages and pictures, and I know she would use it to communicate with others. I am not able to afford paying for a monthly internet fee or computer.


Any suggestions appreciated!

I don't know if it still exists or remember what it was called but I knew a lady who had something inexpensive that went through her TV. She could do emails but very little else with it. I wish I could remember what it was called. Maybe it was through a cable company?

Sorry for being so vague..........

Hello KD

I know she is 84, good for her wanting to be up on the technology! I don't know how active she is, maybe when she is out shopping she can use the local library computer they usually have them free use, they will help her get started and teach her how to use it , and probably have great info on cheap or free Internet for "Seniors" Oh another thought, I am sure the local comunity "Seniors Center" can help,

Good Luck, give these 2 a call, OK

I think it was a cable TV company that offered the email service - I'd heard about quite a few years ago, but not recently. I think the Senior Center is a really good bet if she has access to one. Maybe one of her neighbors has internet service and would be willing to share?


If she lives near you, there are some really cheap providers (seriously cheap) in the area. If she does, send me a PM and I'll give you the details.
