(NECN) - Stimulus money is helping more people connect to the Internet in Boston.

The $2 million dollar project will put more computers in computing centers, public housing developments, and libraries throughout the city.

When finished, the computers will allow nearly 18,000 people a week to access broadband Internet.

That's a 40% increase in service.
