The COVID-19 virus is impacting Georgian's ability to work, access healthcare, and receive education services. Because of the shift to telehealth with “virtual visits," teleworking, and remote continuity of learning, and in partnership with Governor Brian Kemp and the state Coronavirus Task Force, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs has launched this webpage to provide information to Georgians and resources connect to high-speed internet.
In response to social distancing requirements and stay-at-home instructions, broadband providers are temporarily offering various options to get Georgians internet connectivity. These include free internet service, waiving disconnect and late fees, providing free access to WiFi hot spots, reducing limitation on data-usage, and offering other time-limited options.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs has launched a website to help Georgians get internet connectivity. See the complete press release here.
