Affordable Internet Offers

 

 

Welcome Parents!

School2Home is partnering with schools serving low-income students, to help inform students and their families of Reduced-Cost Internet Offers and free Chromebooks. 

Some of the Internet offers are available for as little as $10 a month!

Computers are available with some offers while supplies lasts!

Why do we do this?  One of the best ways to ensure your child succeeds in school is by having a Home Internet connection!  It costs less than purchasing data for your mobile phone.  A Home Internet connection can help your child do online research for a school essay, complete online college applications, and explore the online world for information that may help them succeed at school and in life!  With a Home Internet connection, you will be able to communicate with the school or teacher directly, through translation apps if needed, and receive updates on your child’s progress in school. 

It can be time-consuming to select the right Internet service for your family!  Companies often try to sell you services you don’t need.  We work with trusted, vendor-neutral, community-based organizations to help you sign-up for an Internet plan and avoid being over-charged!

Choosing an Affordable High-Speed Internet Provider

Choosing an affordable high-speed Internet provider requires a number of decisions and calculations. Not all Internet Service Providers are available in all regions of California. In fact, most areas are covered by only a few providers. The information below is a step-by-step guide to finding affordable offers.

STEP 1: Go go to EveryoneOn.org, AllConnect.com, and Mobile Citizen—please check all three!—and put in your home address and/or zip code.

STEP 2: Determine which Internet Service Provider serves your location and review the offers in your area to comparison shop.

STEP 3: Determine your data usage. Every household uses the Internet differently. If you only send e-mails and do basic research online, you will need a low data usage plan. If you plan to stream movies, play videos games, or having multiple people using multiple devices simultaneously, you will need a higher data usage plan. 

TIP: Learn how to manage your family’s data usage, secure your privacy and identity online, and protect your children online at Common Sense Media and the Federal Trade Commission.
