RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Up to 50,000 North Carolina students now have access to the Verizon Distance Learning Program, which provides reliable, affordable Internet connections and solutions for more than 38 million students1 across 40 states and the District of Columbia.

The North Carolina program will enable students to benefit from discounted service plans for Verizon unlimited 4G LTE Internet access, mobile device management (MDM) and other security solutions required for student use.

“Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the mission of the Verizon Distance Learning Program has been to provide the fastest, simplest way for students to have access to a reliable, affordable Internet connection -- especially for those families who do not currently have one,” said Andrés Irlando, senior vice president and president, Public Sector and Verizon Connect at Verizon. “Verizon is helping to bridge the digital divide and enable 50,000 more students to stay connected to their teachers, their schools and each other this school year.”

The Verizon Distance Learning Program is a series of sponsor-state, Independent School District (ISDs) and stand-alone state agreements that aim to provide every eligible student in the U.S. with a reliable Internet connection, device, compliance and security software, and other education solutions they need to continue their educations during the Covid-19 pandemic. The program is now available to more than 38 million students in 40 states and the District of Columbia -- including Los Angeles Unified School District and the states of California, Georgia, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Massachusetts, Texas and Oregon.
