Due to the recent closure of Jamestown Public Schools as well as SUNY and numerous other colleges, and the implementation of distance learning the Mayor’s office is encouraging all families to sign up for Charter’s offer of free internet for families with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription.
From Charter’s release:
- 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. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
- Charter will partner with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these tools to help students learn remotely.
- For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter continues to offer Spectrum Internet Assist, a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30 Mbps.
