Broadband Access for Students and Families
Mar 16, 2020 | posted by Jason Nugent
Update - 4/29/2020: DirectLink has extended access to members currently on the free broadband and WiFi offer as well as the free upgrade offer. These groups will have their discounts extended until June 24th, regardless of their activation date. This is to ensure our local students remain connected to educators through the end of the school year.
As part of our ongoing commitment to members, DirectLink is making options available to help keep students and their families connected and online as our community takes steps to respond to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation. Consequently, we will be offering:
- Two months of free broadband service and WiFi to new subscribers with students in the home.
- Existing subscribers with students will be given a free speed upgrade for two months.
Because DirectLink serves members across multiple school districts and educational institutions, students and families are advised to contact their school to determine what online educational opportunities may or may not be available to them at this time.
As we monitor the developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the health and safety of our employees and members remain our top priority. We are staying close to this situation and are taking proactive steps to enhance our safety standards as we continue to provide you with the products and services you need during this time. Consequently, this program will be available while policies allow our employees to install services and is subject to change.
For additional information about these offerings, please contact our Member Services team.
