Resources on Attaining Internet Access

A number of internet service providers have come forward with offers for free service for a limited time and other temporary additional services that are available, should you need them as you prepare for classes. Here are some resources you can check into:

  • Comcast COVID-19 response: offering free WiFi for 2 months to low-income families plus all Xfinity hot-spots are free to the public during this time.
  • Charter: offering free internet for 2 months.  
  • AT&T COVID-19 response: offering open hot-spots, unlimited data to existing customers, and $10/month plans to low-income families
  • Verizon COVID-19 response: no special offers, but following the FCC agreement (see below).
  • Sprint COVID-19 response: follows FCC agreement, provides unlimited data to existing customers, and, starting Tuesday, 3/17/2020, will allow all handsets to enable hot-spots for 60 days at no extra charge (others may follow suit).
  • T-Mobile COVID-19 response: follows FCC agreement, plus unlimited data to existing customers, and, coming soon, will allow all handsets to enable hot-spots for 60 days at no extra charge (others may follow suit).

An FCC agreement has stated that providers will waive late fees, not cutoff service for lack of payment, and open hot-spots.
