Resources for Free Internet Access

Background

Students, faculty and staff may not have internet access at home.

Information

Check local sources that may offer wireless internet connectivity:

1.  At least two internet service providers (Comcast, Charter Spectrum) have announced limited-time programs for in-home internet service.  Check with your local provider to see if they have such a program for this period of time.

2.  Individual cities and counties in Indiana may provide wireless access to the public for free.  For example, the Monroe County Public Library website has information on wireless locations provided by local providers in that county.  Terre Haute has a TerreHauteFree wireless service that can be accessed from locations near Wabash and 7th Street.

3.  If you live near a participating University or School you may be able to use EDUROAM wireless services as an option as well. Article - Eduroam service for Indiana... (teamdynamix.com)
