What's Your Internet Service Provider Doing?


Altice

The company is offering its Altice Advantage 30 Mbps broadband service free for 60 days to any new residential customer currently without Internet access. According to the FCC, 25Mbps and above classifies as high-speed.

AT&T

The company says it will suspend data caps for its fixed internet service. It also offers a $10-a-month Access from AT&T program for qualifying low-income households



Charter Spectrum

The ISP will offer free Spectrum broadband and WiFi access for 60 days to households with students in kindergarten through 12th grade or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps. The installation fees will be waived for new student households. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395.

For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter offers Spectrum Internet a*sist, a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30 Mbps. Spectrum does not have data caps or hidden fees.


Comcast

Comcast will offer new residential customers who qualify its $9.95-per-month Internet Essentials program free for 60 days. The company says it will boost its internet service speeds from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps, which qualifies the service as high-speed broadband under FCC guidelines. Comcast also will suspend data caps for 60 days and refrain from disconnecting service or charging late fees for customers who contact the company regarding overdue payments.


Cox Internet

Starting Monday, new customers can receive a free month of internet service in the company's Connect2Compete plan, available to qualified low-income households for $9.95 a month. The company is also fast tracking the application process to get families connected more quickly.

Cox will make its Complete Care support program free to all residential customers who have technical issues or need a*sistance installing features like education software or teleconferencing. The company is going to increase internet speeds from 25/3 Mbps to 50/3 Mbps for 60 days for the Starter, StraightUp Internet, and Connect2Compete packages, and speed up the implementation of a 50Mbps upgrade for users of Cox's Essentials service. That upgrade had been scheduled for later in the year.


Sparklight

The company says it's making unlimited data available on all internet services and waiving late fees for the next 30 days. Customers can call to arrange payment deferrals, Sparklight adds.


T-Mobile

The company has no data cap for its home internet service. All current T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile wireless customers who have cell phone plans with data will be granted unlimited smartphone data for the next 60 days (excluding roaming). They'll also recieve an additional 20GB of mobile hotspot/tethering service for those two months. The company is working to provide Lifeline low-income customers with up to 5GB of free data per month over the next two months.


Verizon

The company recently increased speeds at no extra cost on some mid-tier FIOS services, bumping the 100 Mbps tier to 200 Mbps and the 200 Mbps tier to 300 Mbps. The company reports that it places no data caps on its home internet broadband services. Verizon also offers a low-cost Lifeline plan for qualified families

These banks need to waive that monthly maintenance fee since they know people are out here not getting to work and get paid. With so much online shopping and people needing to use the bank card, debit card to order food and other products instead of cash they need to at least consider the monthly maintenance fee for a month or two. They still get paid from atm transactions, using our money for investments and other things so its not like they don't make money at all while this is going on.

it must suck to be one of the million of Americans that live paycheck to paycheck. I work with people who tell me they are unable to use their sick days no matter how sick they get because they can’t afford to miss out on the money. If everything shuts down for a couple of weeks a lot of people are gunna be fu*ked up.

Mortgage payments, Cable, Cell Phone, credit card and energy bills should all be waived for the month of April. At the very least all late fee’s for any bill should be waived. If we have to choose between food or paying a bill we are buying food.

In recent years I feel like Iím the last n*gga on earth that uses cash. I keep a little money in the bank just in case but for the most part all my transactions are cash. People look at me like Iím some sort of weirdo or suspicious criminal for always using cash but people who give all their hard earned money to the bank and pay all these atm fees and service fees are not too bright and they will be sh*t out of luck when the bank starts telling people they canít give them their money. #CashIsKing
