To support our community and educational partners connect students and staff together for remote learning during extended closures, the City of Ashland’s Ashland Fiber Network (AFN), along with its partner provider Ashland Home Net (AHN) is offering free broadband internet service to ensure the educational process is available to everyone.
Until the end of the school year while schools are closed, AFN and AHN will provide cable modem service at 30 Mbps for all K-12 & college students and staff who are not currently (or within the past 30 days) AFN customers. During this time, activation fees will be waived, and a cable modem will be provided. Installation of service will be dependent upon installer availability.
At the end of the school year or end of the closure (whichever is first), just return the cable modem within a 10-day grace period and have no charges. If interested in maintaining service beyond the remainder of the school year, just contact the AFN or AHN staff to convert to a permanent account with our standard pricing with no activation fee for internet service or cable modems for those wishing to continue service.
