Effective March 16, 2020 , MCTV will offer free Internet service to students who do not have Internet service. Families with a K-12 or college student are eligible. For college students, this includes those attending a local college and students that have come home due to dorm closures elsewhere.
The only exclusion is that they cannot have had MCTV Internet service in the past 90 days in accordance with our policies. The service will be free between now and April 30, 2020. We will continue to assess the situation and will consider extending it if needed.
Please feel free to distribute the attached flyer to your students and/or families. I have also attached the press release that was sent out today.
If MCTV does not serve your entire school district, I encourage you to reach out to the other providers. I know that Spectrum (Charter/Time Warner) has announced a similar plan but I have not heard if others are doing anything.
I’ve received some questions about teachers who may not have Internet access at home. We are unable to extend this free offer to them but we do have several promotions available currently for which they may be eligible.
Students, parents or teachers with questions should contact us at 330-833-4134.
