Broadband access is more important than ever as many Tennesseans have been instructed to stay home from work and school as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the quarantine, several broadband providers are temporarily offering free internet service, waiving disconnect and late fees, providing access to wi-fi hot spots and other measures to help people at home access the services they need.

Accessibility is critical to meet our needs for education, telemedicine, telecommuting and overall quality of life.

Below you will find examples of how providers are ensuring continuity of service to our communities during this time of need.
