Arvig announced on Monday, March 16, that they are offering an Education Assistance Program for families with students in the K-12 system or for college students, to receive free internet services so their education can continue via e-learning in the event that schools remain closed as a result of COVID-19.

The Arvig Education Assistance Program:

  • Is available to families who live in the Arvig service area and currently do not have any internet service at their residence.
  • Provides any internet speed available free-of-charge, including wi-fi services if needed.
  • Ensures service will remain free until the 2019-20 school year concludes unless the customer calls to disconnect their services and returns the equipment.
  • Will prioritize service installations for customers considered low-income who qualify for this program.
  • Is available where Arvig can deliver 5 Mbps of speed or higher.

To qualify for free services, the participant must be a new customer, have no bad debt with Arvig and sign up for paperless statements.
