The County of Los Angeles is regularly updating resources on COVID-19 and offers today’s update in an effort to keep you and yours informed. Please share the following up-to-date information:
How to Locate & Access Free County WiFi Hot Spots
The ability to access the Internet has become a critical necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Internet access is not only key to our schools’ online learning programs, but many Federal, State and local resources are provided online, too.
In LA County nearly 110,000 children under 18 don’t have access to a computer at home. Approximately 210,000 children who do have a computer at home, lack an Internet connection. To combat this digital divide, LA County wants to remind residents of this free digital tool which all residents can access for locating free WiFi spots throughout the County.
How it works
To expand your digital connectivity and access during the COVID-19 health crisis, follow these simple instructions:
- Visit findwifi.lacounty.gov or dial 2-1-1.
- Search for internet related services based on your physical address.
- You’ll find:
- internet resources for students
- free County WiFi hot spots
- internet provider contact information
- mobile internet providers
