Friends and Colleagues,

Here is a list of offers from Internet service providers offering free or reduced pricing for Internet access:

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

Altice USA is offering Altice Advantage 30 Mbps broadband solution for free for 60 days to any new customer household within their  footprint.

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

Charter Free Internet offer for 2 months

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

Cox COVID-19 response: New plans include offering a low-income internet tier with no annual contract and relaxing data usage overage charges for all tiers.

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).

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