Charter has announced a plan to partner with school districts and offer free Spectrum internet for 60 days to households with students as classes are moving online amid concerns about COVID-19.
Starting Monday, Charter has committed to the following for 60 days:
• Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
• Charter will partner with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these tools to help students learn remotely.
• For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter continues to offer Spectrum Internet Assist, a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30 Mbps.
• Charter will open its Wi-Fi hotspots across our footprint for public use.
•Spectrum does not have data caps or hidden fees.
“As the country works collaboratively to contain this pandemic, broadband internet access will be increasingly essential to ensuring that people across the country are able to learn and work remotely, that businesses can continue to serve customers, and that Americans stay connected and engaged with family and friends,” Charter said in a statement.
