SOCKET OFFERING 90-DAY FREE FIBER INTERNET IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Socket is offering 90-days of free internet access to new customer households with K-12 students, college students, or senior citizens 60 or older. This offer is only available to locations with access to the Socket fiber-optic network and is not available to DSL locations. Speeds are the fastest available by location, up to 1Gbps. For students who are streaming educational videos, or older adults who might need video conferencing for telemedicine, this high-speed internet is ideal.
“In the midst of so much uncertainty, we believe students and our older population should have access to high-speed internet. This is one less thing families should have to worry about,” said Carson Coffman, Socket president and COO. “We believe in our community and we’re here to help keep you connected. For the past 25 years, Socket has built the infrastructure to be able to keep people connected during a crisis such as this.”
This service is for new residential customers with availability to Socket’s fiber network only. There are no data caps, no contracts, no install fees, and free Wi-Fi is included.
