Do You Need WiFi For Your Child’s School Work at Home? You Might Qualify For Free WiFi in Spartanburg & Greenville.

Posted on | No Comments

Need WiFi for school this year? Spartanburg school districts and Greenville County are announcing deadlines to apply for a free Wifi Service. Deadlines start July 29th and vary by district. Check the information for your district below and don’t wait to apply!

Due to Covid-19, some parents will be continuing their children’s education at home. The additional cost of internet service is a burden not all families can afford.

The state of South Carolina is offering free internet hotspots and internet service to eligible homes with school-aged children. If you don’t already have internet service in your home, you may qualify for this free service. At time of publishing, the state is providing funding for the service from August 2020 through December 2020.
