DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - About 200,000 families across the state are eligible to receive vouchers from the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students to receive internet access.

Many parents say they are having problems with internet providers not honoring the vouchers.

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs says there aren37 providers for the program, but WOW!, a popular option in the Wiregrass, is not one of them, so if you do use WOW!, the internet vouchers will not work.

Others in our area that are on the list include Comcast, Mediacom, Centurylink, and Charter (Spectrum).

If you have service through those providers, the voucher should work.

When asked what should you do if your provider is on the list but does not honor the voucher Josh Carples, the ADECA’s communication coordinator said, “Without knowing the specific customer or their specific situation, we are unable to comment on the issue.”

If you’re having issues with the vouchers you can call 1-888-212-4998 or visit https://abcstudents.org/ for more information on the program and online help.
