MCTV Announces Free Internet Access for Students


MASSILLON, Ohio (March 17, 2020) – MCTV, a leading Internet, TV and Phone provider in Stark, Wayne and seven other counties in Eastern Ohio announced MCTV would offer free Internet access for families without online service in response to online learning concerns related to COVID-19 

“The well-being of our employees, customers and neighbors is our top priority,” said Katherine Gessner, MCTV president. “MCTV is committed to providing the communities we serve reliable access to online resources and information needed to continue education efforts during this time of need.”
