Internet

If you don’t have internet at home, several companies have announced plans to offer free service for 60 days to households with students as classes are moving online.

Please note: Some internet carriers listed are not available in the San Angelo area, but are included for students who may be in other areas.

Mobile Carrier Plan Adjustments

Students may also consider adding a wifi hotspot plan to their cellular account for approx. $10 per month. Check with your carrier for information on their offers.
