Submitted by nate.whitney on Mon, 03/16/2020 - 16:41

Here are some options for families asking about internet access that do not have it at home.  Please understand that no responsibility for accuracy or cost can be taken by the school for this offer - We are simply passing on information. 

Free WiFi Hotspots (See maps for locations)

Xfinity WiFi Free For Everyone: Xfinity WiFi hotspots across the country will be available to anyone who needs them for free – including non-Xfinity Internet subscribers. For a map of Xfinity WiFi Free hotspots, visit www.xfinity.com/wifi. Once at a hotspot, consumers should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser. 
 

Internet for home use:

Families are responsible for creating an account with the provider. 
 

Comcast: (Available in most of the district except for Santaquin/Goshen/parts of Payson) https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19

 

Internet Essentials Free to New Customers:  

As announced yesterday, it’s even easier for low-income families who live in a Comcast service area to sign-up for Internet Essentials, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. New customers will receive 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month. Additionally, for all new and existing Internet Essentials customers, the speed of the program’s Internet service was increased to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream. That increase will go into effect for no additional fee and it will become the new base speed for the program going forward.
