*** Update: Our data shows that the students in our area are connected and we are excited to see their success. Due to the overwhelming demand for connecting students, we are scheduled out for 2 - 3 weeks for new installatons. We will not be taking new connection orders for free student access or upgrades until the back log of connections are complete.

As our region prepares to keep the public safe and healthy with the COVID-19 pandemic, CentraCom is devoted to doing our part. To ease the stress and burdens on families, if you have a student K-12 or a student attending college and do not have Internet service with CentraCom, we are offering free Internet until the end of the school year (May 31, 2020). If you already have Internet service from CentraCom, we will boost your speed to the next tier with no additional charge until the end of the school year (May 31, 2020).
Universities around the state have moved all courses online. CentraCom wants to encourage these students to continue their education without the worry of not having Internet access. We will provide free 20Mbps Internet to families with college students living at home that do not currently have CentraCom service or boost the Internet speed for those that do until the end of the school year, May 31st, 2020.
At this time, we do not know how long the K-12 schools will be dismissed, but we do know that more kids will be at home with the virus spreading. CentraCom wants families to be prepared if the school districts move to an online curriculum. CentraCom will provide free 20 Mbps Internet to families with K-12 students living in their homes that do not currently have Internet service from CentraCom or boost the Internet speed for those that do until the end of the school year, May 31st, 2020.
