Home Internet Access 
If you do not have internet access at home, or cannot afford to maintain it, but need internet for work or school, there are several options available through providers:
  • Access from AT&T is a low-cost home internet package for qualifying individuals and households (no special for COVID-19 but still available at a low cost).
  • Comcast Internet Essentials, a low-cost home internet package for qualifying individuals and households, is now available for free for the first two months.  
  • Mediacom is offering internet access to students at a reduced rate.
  • Verizon is offering reduced fee internet services at a 3-tier level for low-income customers.

Additionally, many internet providers have announced that they are waiving late payment fees, increasing caps on internet speeds, and will not disconnect customers for not paying monthly bills on time. If you have questions or concerns about your internet connection, contact your provider or visit their website for more information.
