Internet Essentials Sponsorship at a Glance

  • Winchester Public Schools has partnered with Comcast to provide eligible families with free internet at home for the 2020-2021 school year. After the application below has been submitted, WPS will provide families with a unique promo code to sign up for FREE home internet through Comcast’s Internet Essentials program.

    What is Internet Essentials?

    Comcast Internet Essentials is a program for families and other low-income households who currently do not subscribe to the internet at home.

    Who is Eligible?

    • Families interested in signing up for the program will be provided a code by WPS. However, Comcast will determine eligibility. Families may qualify if they:

      • Are eligible for public assistance programs such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others.
      • Live in an area where Comcast Internet Service is available.
      • Are not an existing Xfinity Internet customer and have not subscribed to Comcast Internet within the last 90 days. *If you are already an Internet Essentials customer Comcast will assist you in migrating your account to be paid by WPS.

Request a Hotspot

  • Students can check out a MiFi device if they do not have internet access at home. The device is called a Kajeet and comes with a charger in a blue carrying case. 

    The Kajeet works from 6am – midnight and suspends internet access between midnight and 6am. It goes through both the ACPS filter and the Kajeet filter. Once the device has reached its due date, it will suspend access until it is returned. To find out more about Kajeets, students can contact Student Helpdesk staff.

    To request a Kajeet, please fill out this Internet Access form.
