TELUS launches new Internet for Good program for K-12 Students offering high speed internet at home for only $9.95 per month
Local school boards to work with TELUS to ensure all K-12 students get high speed access to the internet to continue learning from safety of their home
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As British Columbians adjust to new ways of living amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and teachers work with parents to enable their children to learn from home, TELUS announced it is working in partnership with local school boards across the province to offer its Internet for Good program to students in need. TELUS’ Internet for Good provides high speed broadband internet at home for only $9.95 per month. Previously, eligibility for the program was focused on families that were receiving the maximum Child Care Benefit from the federal government. Now TELUS and the school boards have partnered to expand and expedite the process of bringing this critical connectivity to all students who need it for learning in the comfort of their home.

School Boards working with TELUS will be responsible for identifying families in need of an internet connection at home, and will provide that family with a unique TELUS Internet for Good promotion code, which the family can use to call TELUS and register for the program. Families will also have access to free educational activities through TELUS WISE and the ‘Learn, Do and Share’ educational hub through a partnership between TELUS and Microsoft.

Awesome job Telus.

Let's see if Rogers and Bell follow suit. In this time, it's important that every child has access to their school.

Not exactly sure how you qualify for this but hopefully it's not hard for those who need it to get in.

Only for low income families and you have to get the code from the government first, and you cannot manually apply

Is Telus subsidizing this or are they asking the school boards to pitch in?

Shaw has the same program as well for low income families needing internet. You get a letter from the Government of Canada with a code and you call the participating ISP's. From what I read last Winter, its a Internet 10 package for 10 dollars a month

So many people need to stop mixing this with the Federal Program for low income families. This is I assume another Temp Program where the School Board can confirm with the ISP to say that you guys do need Internet, etc and your child is enrolled and helps you out. The Federal Program is a code you get and works with a half a dozen or so ISP's maybe more...

I would hardly call this a deal... seems silly to post this. Only a small percentage of people will be waiting to receive for a call to say if they are eligible for the $9.95 Internet subsidy program.

Make no mistake TELUS does NOTHING unless there is money in it for them somehow. This is most likely being subsidized by the taxpayer as well being used a tax write off

Wouldn't call this a deal but a great PSA for those who need it.
