Offering internet to new customers in homes with K-12 and higher education students
TruVista released this statement Tuesday afternoon about providing free internet service to students:
As our communities are affected by the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we recognize that our company plays an important role in customers stay connected to their loved ones, workplaces and schools through the Internet. With the announcements of school closings, we realize that many students may need access to the internet to promote ongoing learning during this challenging time.
Beginning March 17, TruVista is committed to offer:
--Free 60 days of our basic internet service including free installation to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a TruVista broadband subscription. This offer is being made to households within our service areas where facilities currently exist.
--We are also waiving our normal deposit and service agreement process for these households during this time. TruVista plans to keep this opportunity available to new customers for 60 days and will reevaluate it at that time.
As the country works to contain this pandemic, internet access will be increasingly important to ensure that people in our communities are able to learn and work remotely and that our neighbors stay connected with family and friends.
