NORTH CAROLINA — During a global pandemic, people need to stay informed.

  • Charter Communications will offer free Wi-Fi for 60 days to non-subscribers
  • Installation fees are waived
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots will be available across the country

That’s why Charter Communications announced that beginning Monday, March 16, it will offer free broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to families with school-age children or college students who do not already have a Spectrum subscription.

Installation fees for new subscribers are also waived.

Additionally, the company says it will open its Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation for public use.

This move comes after the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission urged internet providers to lower costs and boost speeds, given the coronavirus has driven people to the internet for information, work, and to study.

Charter Communications is the parent company of Spectrum News. It operates in 41 states and services 29 million customers. To enroll in the free broadband and Wi-Fi program, call 1–844–488–8395.
