Internet Access Information

March 14, 2020

Good Afternoon, 

Governor Lamont announced this afternoon that with the increased number of school closures and families staying home to protect against COVID-19,  internet providers are stepping up to ensure that families have the access they need to conduct business and complete schoolwork.  Comcast announced a plan to ensure low-income families have internet access that will be effective as of March 16.  The benefits include 60 days of free service for new Comcast customers, and higher internet speeds for all qualifying customers.  Families can check their eligibility and learn more about available programs at www.internetessentials.com.

·       Altice and Charter are offering 60 days of free broadband to households with K-12 and college students who have been impacted by COVID-19 and not already subscribers to their services with no installation fees.

·       AT&T is waiving home internet data caps during the entire COVID-19 outbreak.
Businesses and families in Connecticut that need assistance are encouraged to contact their service provider to see what programs they may have available to be supportive during this time.

In Partnership,

Catherine Carbone, Ed. D
