Free Internet Access through Ziply or Comcast/Xfinity
Washington's K-12 Internet Access Program ended on June 30, 2021. Families who wish to continue to receive financial assistance for internet access need to sign up for the Federal Communications Commission's new Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.
Having reliable connectivity to the internet is critical for your student’s success during distance learning. The state recognizes this need, and has partnered with Ziply Fiber and Comcast/Xfinity to create Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program, which gives eligible families free internet access so your student can connect to online learning from home.
This internet access opportunity will provide you with faster, stronger and more reliable connectivity than hotspots or tethering to mobile devices, which will better support your student. If eligible, your free internet access is available through June 30, 2021.
