A senior citizen building with the only connection to Comcast

My mother lives in a senior building.  The only ISP Provider that she can get is Comcast (Xfinity).  She is on a fixed income and loves watching certain shows.  I stated to her to hook up her cable and internet.  She is paying $155 a month, which is half her rent and ridiculous.  This is sad that this has to happen and she can't get another cheaper ISP within her building.  She's paying more than me and I live in a home and have three rooms set up.  She only has one set up. There should be a special rate for seniors.  Another tenant got rid of his because it was too expensive.  I'm going to have to start paying the bill for her or she will delete her service.  Please help, because I feel that the seniors are being taken advantage of.

Have you considered getting her an over-the-air digital antenna? That might help her reduce her costs some.
