Charter Spectrum to offer free broadband to students

The cable giant will provide free Wi-Fi to households with students for 60 days as COVID-19 outbreak has forced schools to close.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Beginning March 16, Charter Spectrum will offer households with K-12 and college students free broadband internet for 60 days. 

This comes as many schools and universities across the United States have closed or have e-Learning classes amid the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Charter Spectrum is only offering this to households who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription. The company also says they are partnering with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these tools to help students learn remotely.

A number of Kentuckiana schools have closed and have elected to have e-Learning days. Click here to see a full list.
