Sparklight today announced that is opening WiFi hotspots across its footprint for public use during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis in order to keep individuals and communities connected to the online resources they want and need.
WiFi hotspots can be accessed free of charge in Sparklight local office parking lots.
Additionally, Sparklight announced last week that it is making unlimited data available on all internet services for the next 30 days, as well as offering payment deferrals and waiving late fees for its customers for the next 60 days. The company plans to reassess after 30 days based on the continued impact and evolving nature of the virus.
“We live and work in the communities we serve and these are our friends and neighbors impacted by effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19), so we want to do our part to help,” said Julie Laulis, President and CEO. “We understand that our customers rely on their Internet service to stay connected to family, work, school and information, and we are committed to ensuring they receive the assistance they need during this time.”
