While Renton School District has provided many of our students and families with hotspot internet accessibility, there is still a need by some families for internet service. Some internet service providers are finding a way to fill the gap to help students continue learning at home through the Keep Americans Connected Initiative. The agreement by these companies pledges for the next 60 days to:
not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic; and open its Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them.
· Comcast is offering Internet Essentials as an affordable way for homes who receive public assistance to get online. The plan is available for about $10 per month.
