Spectrum is offering free internet services to students and families for a period of 2 months.  The number to call is 1-844-488-8395, tell guardians when they call to que the NEW SERVICES prompt and also let them know they will have a longer than usual wait time. 

1. You are not eligible for services if you have a past debt with them unless it is paid in full first.
2. If you have no past debt then you can get 100Mbps service for 2 months. You will still get the bill, but on the bill it will show that it is free, so it will show what they charged and show that they removed it.
3. Installation is also waived
4. After the 2 months is up you will start to get a regular bill unless you call and cancel services.
5. If you have had internet service through Spectrum in the past 30 days and have canceled you are not eligible.
6. You do not have to have a credit card or payment on file with them, they will bill you after the 2 months is up.

They do have a low income option for families, but it is a lower speed (I think he said 30) so you would be better off signing up for the free services and then calling at the end of your 2 months and doing everything for the low-income program at that time.
