D11 has partnered with the community to help provide Internet access to low-income D11 families. The most reliable option is the whole-house Internet service provided through Century Link and paid for by the D11 Foundation. The second option is a mobile hotspot.
Comcast Internet Application:
Click Here to apply for one year of free of Comcast Internet service (Aug. 1, 2022 – July 31, 2023).
Any household that has a student in District 11 and does not have Internet service at their address is eligible to apply. Households will be notified by email when service is available. Please send any questions to Stacy.Brisben@d11.org.
The second option is a T-Mobile hot spot that can be checked out through our library. We have some hot spots with unlimited data as well as some with 100 GB limit. These are best for our homeless students or those living in motels. While they do work, the Internet service isn't as fast or reliable as the Comcast option. These would have to be returned at the end of school in May. It also requires an additional user agreement to be signed before any hot spots can be given to students, parents, or guardians. User agreements are available in the library.
