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.
