What if I Don't Have Access to the Internet?

Connectivity for students who don’t have it:

FCC agreement stating that providers will waive late fees, not cutoff service for lack of payment, and open hot-spots.

Comcast COVID-19 response: offers free WiFi for 2 months to low income families plus all Xfinity hot-spots are free to the public during this time.

Charter Free Internet offer for 2 months

AT&T COVID-19 response: offers open hot-spots, unlimited data to existing customers, and $10/month plans to low income families

Verizon COVID-19 response: no special offers, but following the FCC agreement.

Sprint COVID-19 response: follows FCC agreement, provides unlimited data to existing customers, and, starting Tuesday, 3/17/2020, will allow all handsets to enable hot-spots for 60 days at no extra charge (I expect others will follow).

T-Mobile COVID-19 response: follows FCC agreement, plus unlimited data to existing customers, and, coming soon, will allow all handsets to enable hot-spots for 60 days at no extra charge (I expect others will follow).

HWS belongs to Eduroam (education roaming, a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

Perhaps another Eduroam institution is located close to you!
