Garden Valley Technologies – offering assistance to families to get online

According to their Facebook Page, Garden Valley Technologies is offering the following services…

Garden Valley Technologies has always believed in giving back to the communities we serve. As we navigate through the spread of the COVID-19 virus, keeping our communities connected is a priority. During this difficult time many families may need to prepare for e-learning or at home classes. GVT is offering special assistance to those families with students K-12 who currently do not have Internet service at their residence. A 50/50 Mbps Internet speed connection will be made available free of charge, including managed Wi-Fi services, if needed.

To qualify for free Internet services, they must be a new Internet customer who lives in GVT’s service area. The service will remain free until the 2019/2020 school year concludes or the students return to their regular school schedule. Installation of service will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis and can only be completed where available.

This offer will hopefully make it easier for schools and students prepare for on-line learning during this difficult time.

Questions regarding the offer, eligibility of service, or further details can be directed to Garden Valley Technologies at 800-448-8260.

Garden Valley serves at least portions of the following counties: Beltrami, Clearwater, Hubbard, Lake of the Woods, Mahnomen, Marshall, Norman, Pennington, Polk and Red Lake.
