Internet Service and Online Class Benefits

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered new ways of learning.  All around the world, educational institutions are looking toward online learning platforms to continue with the process of educating students.  After the pandemic, there will still be a need for online classes (for example, you have an errand scheduling conflict or cannot leave home to take care of a loved one, etc.).

Affordable Connectivity Program

The Emergency Broadband Benefit changed to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).  This program can provide a discount on your monthly internet service provider bill.  

For more information on the upcoming changes or to see if you qualify, please see the FCC’s webpage.
