I cannot take credit for this, but a colleague of mine compiled a list of local internet resources which we can share with students who may not have reliable wifi/data. Please feel free to share widely.
*****
Several companies are offering free services for the next 60 days, meanwhile at least T-Mobile and AT&T (perhaps others, too) have waived data caps.

Comcast:
They are offering free access to Xfinity wifi hotspots. For a map of Xfinity WiFi hotspots, visit xfinity.com/wifi.

They’re also offering 25mb service with free installation for the next two months. For new customers, applicants can simply visit http://www.internetessentials.com. The accessible website also includes the option to video chat with customer service agents in American Sign Language. There are also two dedicated phone numbers 1-855-846-8376 for English and 1-855-765-6995 for Spanish.

Charter/Spectrum:
They are also offering their wifi hotspots for free. Here’s a map: https://www.spectrum.com/wifi-hotspots

Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription and at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

Altice/Optimum:
Altice is also opening up their wifi hotspots, which includes AlticeWifi, optimumwifi, and cableWiFi: https://www.optimum.net/internet/hotspots/
