MASSILLON — MCTV, an internet, TV and phone provider in Wayne, Holmes and other counties in eastern Ohio, plans to offer free internet access for families without online service in response to online learning concerns related to COVID-19, the company said Tuesday.
“The well-being of our employees, customers and neighbors is our top priority,” MCTV President Katherine Gessner said in a prepared statement. “MCTV is committed to providing the communities we serve reliable access to online resources and information needed to continue education efforts during this time of need.”
The company will offer free internet access for households that do not have an MCTV broadband subscription now but do have K-12 or college students. Free internet will be provided for families who have not been a MCTV customer for 90 days. The offer is available now through April 30.
“These are unprecedented times not just for our communities but for the entire world,” Gessner said. “The impact of changes we are all experiencing is immense and MCTV will be here to serve our communities so they can stay connected to what matters most at this time — family, friends, education and health-care resources.”
Families with school-age and/or college students interested in participating in the free internet program should contact MCTV at 330-833-4134 for details.
