Keeping Our Customers Connected- GVTC hits one year mark with Free WiFi Spots for Community

by Brianne Magott | May 15, 2021

Starting in April 2020, GVTC and The GVTC Foundation decided to open free WiFi hotspots across our service area to aid our communities in need at the height of the pandemic. Partnering with local organizations, GVTC set up the hotspot locations to help hundreds of students and families who were experiencing hardships. This month marks 14 months since the hotspots were opened. GVTC understands how crucial communication technology is to working, teaching, and learning from home and will continue to help our loyal customers.
