Nex-Tech Announces Continuous Learning Initiative
Hays, Kan, 3-26-2020 — In response to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on area schools and understanding that Internet connectivity is critically important to the success of students, Nex-Tech is announcing its Continuous Learning Initiative. Schools districts have been gathering data to confirm the impact of student households that don’t currently have Internet service and have shared these addresses with Nex-Tech for verification of eligibility. Nex-Tech will begin providing service to eligible locations effective March 30, 2020.
Area schools will distribute additional information from Nex-Tech to eligible families regarding the steps to sign-up for service.
Nex-Tech would also like to assure its customers that its network is strong and ready for increased usage. Said Dustin Schlaefli, Director of Customer Engagement, “Our network was built to scale. While we have observed increased usage during the day, we can easily absorb significantly more. Our network was designed with the future in mind - telemedicine, telecommuting, remote education, 4K streaming and beyond. While we never imagined things would change so quickly, we are encouraged that our network was ready and will continue to be.”
