At this challenging time, we are already seeing the qualities that make living in Northeast Iowa special. People are stepping up to support each other and looking beyond themselves as they serve others. As you know, this outbreak is impacting learners and educators in real ways. We believe reliable broadband internet connections are vital for schools to try out distance learning tools and for students working in digital classrooms.
To make sure that educators and learners have access to the tools they need, we have implemented two programs to facilitate connections during the COVID-19 crisis:
- Teachers and administrators who need more broadband speed and have Alpine service should contact us to learn how to upgrade their plan.
- Income-qualifying households with children enrolled in a PK-12 school may be eligible for special pricing on internet services.
- Please call our COVID-19 team at 563-245-4406, Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, or email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Audrey Posten, the editor of the North Iowa Times, interviewed Alpine employees Lori Keppler and Sara Hertrampf, regarding Alpine’s response to the pandemic and partnership with MFL MarMac Schools. You can read the full article here.
“Our root belief is that connected communities become thriving communities,” shared Hertrampf. “And we know, right now, that connections aren’t just a nice thing to have. They’re essential—especially for distance learning.”
Quality Connections: Our network is strong, our services are built to be reliable at times like this, and our local team is ready to respond to your needs. As always, we offer our broadband customers unlimited data with no overages and technical support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
