Connectivity for Students and Families

If you or a member of your family is a public school student in Connecticut and you don’t currently have Internet at home, you are eligible for a year of free at-home internet through Governor Lamont’s Everybody Learns Initiative. Just call your school to learn more. You can also visit https://portal.ct.gov/GetConnected/Help-for-Students or call 2-1-1 to find a low-cost plan that works for you.


Emergency Broadband Benefit - Support for Connectivity

The Federal Communications Commission has launched a temporary program to help families and households struggling to afford Internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.

Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) using an online or mail in application.

You can learn more about the benefit, including eligibility and enrollment information, by visiting www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit, or by calling 833-511-0311
