"Keeping Americans Connected" Pledge

South Dakotas rural broadband providers (member companies of SDTA) stand ready to provide and maintain broadband and telephone connectivity to their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and are doing everything possible to ensure that workers and students are able to continue with their jobs and studies. 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the challenges that many Americans will face in the coming months, many of South Dakotas rural broadband providers and numerous other broadband providers and state and national associations (550 plus) have signed on to the Federal Communications Commissions Keep Americans Connected Pledge, agreeing to the following through June 30, 2020:

-              To not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic;

-              To waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic; and

-              To open its Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them.
