COVID-19 Internet Access Resources
With our transition to online, many students have questions about access and connectivity. The FCC runs Lifeline, a grant program designed to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers.
Additionally, the FCC has recently made an agreement with providers stating late fees will be waived and service will not be terminated for lack of payment. https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DOC-363033A1.pdf Additionally, several providers are offering additional options. To assist you, a few options are listed below:
