Community partners are offering free internet access to families, for a limited time. The information below is based on news reports from the companies:
Spectrum/Charter Communications: Families without internet will be able to get the service at no cost for 60 days from Charter Communications/Spectrum. 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. The service won’t be free after 60 days. Customers will have to notify the company to cancel the service to avoid regular pricing. To enroll, call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
Comcast/Xfinity: New customers will receive 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month. Additionally, for all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program’s Internet service was increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream. That increase will go into effect for no additional fee and it will become the new base speed for the program going forward. The company also shared that it will not disconnect a customer’s internet service or assess late fees if they contact the company that they can’t pay their bills during this period. To sign up, applicants can visit http://www.internetessentials.com or call 855-846-8376 for English and 855-765-6995 for Spanish.
During the extended cancelling of classes (through Friday, April 3), Columbus City Schools will offer meals for ALL children age 18 and under, Monday through Friday.
The meals will be “grab and go” style, and kids will also be able to pick up lunch at breakfast, or pick up the next day’s breakfast at lunch. Also, per federal regulations, children 18 and under must be in attendance in order to pick up food. We are working with elected officials in an attempt to modify this, and we will update our website and social feeds if this does change. Please see the Map for open meal locations. MAP CLICK HERE
