Free Internet for Students
Several companies are offering free or reduced-cost services to students and their families as a response to accessibility issues stemming from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Comcast and Charter-Spectrum provide internet service in the Tallahassee area and they have announced they are offering their services at a reduced cost or at no cost to qualifying students.
As detailed on its website, Comcast's new Internet Essentials customers may receive two free months of internet service for $9.95 per month and qualifying households must apply by Thursday, April 30. Comcast has also increased its internet service—at no additional cost—for all Internet Essentials customers. More information is available by clicking here.
Last week, Charter-Spectrum also announced it will offer free broadband and WIFI services to students in households currently without services. Free broadband and wifi access will be available for 60 days and Charter-Spectrum will waive the installation fees for households with students in kindergarten through college. Those interested may call 1-844-488-8395 for more information.
Please continue to practice health and safety precautions to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus
