More than 1,100 free lunches for students were picked up on Monday at locations scattered across the county. On Tuesday, more than 3,000 breakfasts and lunches were picked up after school bus routes were added to deliver meals at specific stops district-wide.

Hargray, Beaufort County’s largest Internet service provider, announced 60 days of free Internet service to households with K-12 or college students who don’t already have Hargray subscriptions. Superintendent Rodriguez discussed the idea last weekend with Hargray executives who quickly put the plan together and launched it today. 

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic increasingly impacts families and businesses across the Southeast, Hargray is partnering with educators, including Beaufort County Schools, to ensure students have the necessary Internet connectivity to continue their studies during school closings. Hargray announced today programs to support remote learning for students in grades K-12 and college. To ease the strain in this challenging time, effective immediately:

• Hargray will offer free Internet service for 60 days to households in its service area with K-12 or college students who do not already have a Hargray Internet subscription. To learn more about this program, and to enroll, please visit

• Hargray will also offer discounted Internet speed upgrades to existing customers to ensure they have the necessary bandwidth to accommodate higher Internet usage in their homes during this time. Current customers interested in increasing their Internet speeds should please call 877-427-4729.

• Hargray will also offer discounted packages to new customers without K-12 or college students. To learn more about these offers, please call 877-427-4729.

Hargray is also proud to announce it has joined the “Keep Americans Connected” pledge launched by the Federal Communications Commission and in doing so has committed to waive late fees and not terminate service to residential or small business customers that are unable to pay their bills due to economic circumstances related to coronavirus (COVID-19).
