One of the challenges that ICCSD has taken on during the pandemic is working to ensure that our families have access to reliable home internet service. Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved a federal emergency subsidy to offset the cost of home internet for low-income households, which should further the goal of accessing reliable high-speed home internet service for families in our district and around the nation.
We will post more information to the ICCSD Innovation Blog once application information and further details are available. In the meantime, families should be aware that we continue to provide home internet connectivity to families who don’t have it. Information about obtaining service is available here.
In addition to service through the district, families should also be aware of low-cost internet options available to eligible households through South Slope, CenturyLink, and Mediacom.
