INTERNET: students and staff in Ashland eligible for free access

Southern Oregon University , Public Updates

Dear SOU students and employees-

The city of Ashland has developed a plan to provide free internet service for students and staff from both SOU and the Ashland School District who have been displaced from either campus by COVID-19 restrictions.

Free service will be offered from the city’s Ashland Fiber Network and its partner, Ashland Home Net, to students and staff who live in Ashland and lack reliable internet. The arrangement was the result of ongoing efforts to encourage collaboration between the university and various partners in the community – in this case, regular meetings among local information technology leaders.

The internet providers will offer free service – with a cable modem and no activation fees – until the end of the academic year or as long as public schools or the university are closed, whichever comes first.

More information is available on the city’s news release.
