Free WiFi For Students and Teachers
In this day and age of virtual learning, a company is offering a free internet program for students and teachers who can't afford it. There are some stipulations but if you need free Wi-Fi you may qualify. According to WKBW.com, Charter Spectrum is offering free broadband or WiFi internet this fall for students in Kindergarten through twelfth grade. They are extending the program to teachers and administrators as well.
If you are a student or teacher that lives in a Charter Spectrum internet area and are not currently a customer, you can enroll in the program. If you qualify, you would receive WiFi or broadband internet for sixty days with speeds up to 200 Mbps.
Back in March, Charter Spectrum offered the same program for those who were remote learning and they say that four hundred forty-eight thousand new households enrolled.
If you are interested in finding out if you are eligible or would like to enroll in the program, call 844-310-1198. If you do qualify, Charter Spectrum will give your household a free installation kit for WiFi or broadband internet.
If you are not a student or an educator, you could be eligible for a different program called Spectrum Internet Assist. This offers 30 Mbps broadband to seniors and low-income households. The qualifications for this program are different. You must qualify for the National School Lunch Program, the Community Eligibility Provision, or Supplemental Security Income to apply.
