FREE Internet from Spectrum and Comcast for School Closings
With schools closing left and right, our kids are moving to online study at home. But for families who don't have internet, things were looking uncertain. Luckily Spectrum and Comcast have both announced that they are offering FREE Internet to families who aren't currently on any plan!
Charter Communications is now offering free Spectrum internet access for 60 days to students who don't currently use the service.
Charter will install both broadband and WiFi services for free in new student households. The offer is available to both K-12 and college students.
To get the Free Spectrum Internet offer:
- Be a household with a student enrolled in a K-12 school or college

Comcast started offering free internet on March 16th as well!
Starting Monday, Comcast said it will offer low-income families who live within Comcast’s service areas 60 days of free “Internet Essentials” service, one of its lowest cost programs. (normally costs $9.95 per month) They also announced that they'll be speeding up its Internet Essentials service for all customers from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps. This speed increase will happen automatically – no action is required by customers.
