Internet Access Providers Offering Low and No Cost Options

Some internet and cellphone data providers are offering low and no cost options for students. Depending on where you, you may be eligible for free internet access through Comcast or Charter Communication. Comcast is offering 2 months free to new Internet Essentials customers in response to recent and anticipated emergency measures associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). You will find more details here: https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19

Charter Communications is offering free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps.

In addition, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile (and likely others) have signed on to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s “Keep Americans Connected Pledge”, to help maintain internet access even if they potentially are unable to pay their bills due to a financial disruption as a result of COVID-19.
