Sparklight extends COVID-19 relief efforts
Special to Long Beach Breeze
Sparklight recently announced it is extending many of its relief measures that were set to expire on June 30, 2020. The measures will continue through the end of the year in order to support customers and communities in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through December 31, 2020, the company will continue to offer its 15 Mbps residential internet plan for $10 per month for the first three months of service, in order to help low income families and those most impacted from coronavirus challenges, such as seniors and college students.
Sparklight is also extending access to free public WiFi hotspots across its footprint through the end of the year in order to keep individuals and communities connected during the crisis.
Other actions being taken by the company include working with residential and small business internet and phone customers who have been harmed financially by the COVID-19 pandemic to keep them connected, including waiving late fees through July 31, 2020, and offering flexible payment plans. Also, the company will permanently boost the majority of their residential internet data plans by an additional 50 to 300 GB for free (based on plan) as of July 1, 2020.
In addition, Sparklight is partnering with communities, hospitals, medical centers and other essential institutions in addressing their unique broadband connection needs and challenges.
“As effects from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact our customers and communities, a fast and reliable internet connection is essential for staying in touch with family, friends, school and work,” said Julie Laulis, President and CEO. “We remain steadfast in standing by our company promise of keeping our customers and communities connected to what matters most during these difficult times.”
