Attention households in Brunswick and Columbus County who have children in grades K-12 or in college.
ATMC announced that starting Monday, March 16, it will offer high-speed internet service at no cost for 60 days to households in Brunswick and Columbus County who have children in grades K-12 or in college and do not already have a broadband subscription. This offer is being made in response to schools and colleges closing across the state as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
“With area schools now closed, a connection which enables online learning will be essential to continue to educate our children during the outbreak,” said Jody Heustess, ATMC vice president of marketing and customer care. “Because ATMC is a community-based company, we want to do our part to provide this critical connection to those families who need it most.”
Wi-Fi and standard installation will also be included at no cost. ATMC has reached out to Brunswick County Schools and Columbus County Schools to inform them of this opportunity for students, the company said in a press release. To find out if ATMC services are available in your area, call ATMC at 910-754-4311, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm.
The promotion is scheduled to last for 60 days beginning on March 16. Installation appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis where service is available, ATMC said. After the 60-day promotion period regular prices will apply unless service is canceled and equipment is returned.
