Do you need internet?
As the novel coronavirus continues to spread across the US, Charter Communications offered free Spectrum internet access for 60 days to students who don't currently use the service.
In a news release, Charter, the parent company of Spectrum, said both broadband and WiFi services would be installed for free in new student households. The offer is available to both K-12 and college students.
Spectrum will also open its WiFi hotspots to the public.
Comcast is also making it easier for low-income families who live in a Comcast service area to sign up by offering new customers 60 days of free Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month.
The company is also increasing internet speeds for the Internet Essentials service from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps for all new and existing customers, which will be the speed of the service going forward.
Families who qualify for free Spectrum internet can call 1-844-488-8395 to enroll.
