Don't Have Internet Service? Resources Here

Xfinity has lifted their hotspot restrictions and has opened them to the public. If you have one near you, it can access free Internet. Finder: https://hotspots.wifi.xfinity.com/ 

Following a request last week by the Federal Communications Commission, several internet service providers are temporarily expanding access to broadband services � either free or deeply discounted � particularly to low-income households and those with K-12 and college students. Students may have to navigate finding what is available in their areas and what works best for them.

To date, here is a summary of current offerings:

AT&T: Offer internet access for qualifying limited income households at $10 a month through our Access from AT&T program. Additionally, all public Wi-Fi hotspots are open nationwide. To apply, visit https://accessatt.solixcs.com/

Charter: Free broadband and wifi for 60 days for students do who not already have an account. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395.

Comcast: Comcast is offering an Internet Essentials service to those households eligible for public-assistance programs such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, or SSI. Applicants can visit internetessentials.com to enroll in the program; they may also call (855) 846-8376 for English or 855-765-6995 for Spanish.
