    Free Internet Access During COVID-19

    by Wesley Johnson

    Several internet services providers are going above and beyond to make sure everyone has access during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We applaud them for attempting to help make these stressful time a little easier.

    Comcast is offering low-income households access to their “Internet Essentials” package for free. Normally that costs $9.95 a month. With it, you get speeds “up to” 25 mbps. To apply for a self-install kit (modem & router), visit their website or call 1-855-846-8376 (for Spanish, 1-855-765-6995). You may also access the company’s many Xfinity Hot Spots located throughout the country (map), even if you are not a customer. Find more information on that here.

    All new students in grades K-12 and college may access Spectrum broadband without a charge for 60 days, courtesy of Charter Communications. Click here for more info on how to get it. They have opened up their hotspots to everyone as well (map).

    AT&T recently pledged to NOT terminate anyone’s service if they are unable to pay their bills due to COVID-19 disruptions. All their data usage caps have been suspended “until further notice.” They, too, have opened up their hotspots to all.

    And, of course, DCPL’s wireless internet is available 24/7. Our coverage is quite good so you should have no problem accessing it from the Reading Garden or Parking Lot. Email [email protected] for instructions on how to log in.
