Internet access away from school and at home

Programs to help with home internet access
Everett Public Schools is partnering with both Comcast and T-Mobile to provide solutions for students who do not have internet access available to them outside of school. Families who qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program are eligible for either option. Requests are being processed based on device availability.
Comcast Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB)
The Comcast EBB option is a voucher and a link to receive a home router self-install kit that will provide Wi-Fi internet connectivity for the household. Monthly charges for this service are billed to Everett Public Schools and are paid with funds from a federal emergency connectivity fund.
T-Mobile Project 10Million
The T-Mobile option is a portable hotspot device that can provide Wi-Fi internet connectivity for up to 15 devices. Monthly charges for this service are billed to Everett Public Schools and are paid with funds from a federal emergency connectivity fund.
Whichever program is requested, qualified families will receive one connectivity option which can be used for all students in the household.
