Sioux Falls, SD – Midco is extending its commitment to the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected pledge. Through June 30th, the communications company won’t disconnect services to customers financially affected by the coronavirus pandemic. If customers are having financial difficulties during this time, Midco encourages them to contact customer care representatives by phone, via chat on Midco.com, text or social media.
In addition, Midco will continue its partnership with area schools by offering Midco Internet Basics through June 30 for low-income households who have a student in the home but don’t have an internet connection. Current customers who have been financially hampered by the coronavirus can also apply for Lifeline internet and phone services. The federal program is intended to put home phone and internet service within reach of qualifying families – giving low-income households affordable access. Midco’s internet services are unlimited, meaning Midco does not impose any data caps or additional fees.
“We know connection is essential to our customers, and our customers are essential to us,” said Midco President & CEO Pat McAdaragh. “Midco is proud to play an important role in providing our customers with a vital connection to the world.”
