There are many internet service providers that are now offering free hi-speed internet service during this COVID-19 Pandemic. Below you will find a link that will explain a handful of options for families without internet service or those with inadequate internet service. These providers are offering free service for 60 days.

Cellular companies may offer tethering incentives (such as either lower cost, or more amounts of data to use for tethering) for cellular plans during the pandemic that allow families to turn their smartphones into mobile hotspots.
Also, free WiFi is available at several businesses, such as Degenstein Library, Dunkin Donuts, Burger King, and Weis Markets. Please practice CDC’s social distancing guidelines if utilizing free WiFi at any business. Depending on the business, you can sit in your car while connected to their wireless. Degenstein Library has said that anyone can park in their parking lot and use the WiFi even while they’re closed.
