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.
COVID-19 Internet Access Resources
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.
Click the "Find Public WiFi" icon below for locations of WiFi options in Georgia, offered by the telecommunications industry, Georgia state government, and other wi-fi providers. All of these provide FREE internet access, and some locations are open-access and some require a login. But at this time, we are not able to provide that detailed information here on this website.
While many public libraries are currently closed, some are offering WiFi outside their buildings
Please follow the State of Georgia’s Stay-at-Home order, signed on April 2, 2020. Only leave home to visit Public WiFi locations to use the internet for Essential Services, such as medical purposes, teleworking, and remote learning. Follow social distancing requirements and remain at least six (6) feet away from any fellow Georgian who is not a member of your household. For more information, see Governor Kemp’s Executive Order.
Please bring your own computer or tablet - devices are not available at these locations at this time.
