What options do families have if they do not have internet access at home?
During this COVID-19 crisis, Buckeye Broadband and Sandusky City Schools is committed to ensuring every home has access to an education, specifically when attending school in person may not be a safe option. The School Freenet Program utilizes an ad-based FreeNet product, while allowing special circumstances during classroom hours such as: enough speed & upload to stream (3) classrooms at a time, no ads between 7am-4pm Monday-Friday, and daily usage reporting. Internet speeds will slow down at night and on weekends. Families with existing internet services are not eligible.
