Internet and WiFi Services
As California Community Colleges move classes and services online, access to reliable internet service is critical. Below is a list of several reduced companies providing free or low-cost internet access during the current emergency.
As we transition our face-to-face courses to online instruction for remote education, we want to make students aware of a resource for 60 days of complimentary internet access. If you live in a Comcast service area, you may be eligible for this service.
Internet Essentials: 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.
For more information about eligibility and to apply, call 1-800-934-6489 or visit their Comcast website.
