Internet Connectivity Options for Southern Maryland

Updated 2/14/2023

Internet Sevice Providers in the Southern Maryland Region: 

The Tri-County Area Libraries provide Wifi access within the public libraries: 

Government Assistance:

  • Lifeline is a government program backed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It provides a monthly phone or internet service discount for low-income households. At the time of writing, Lifeline benefits give eligible subscribers a discount of at least $9.25 per month off landline phone service, wireless phone service, broadband, or bundled services. Internet service providers in Southern Maryland: Xfinity, Verizon, and Breezeline.
  • Some families and communities can qualify for free or price-reduced internet through government and social programs like Lifeline and EveryoneOn, but for those who don’t qualify and still want to save money, it can be difficult to find low-cost internet options.
  • If you need only bare bones internet, there are a few internet providers who offer limited free internet service:
    • NetZero offers customers up to 10 hours of free dial-up internet use every month. The connection requires a home phone line, and it’s limited to data speeds of around 56 Kbps (about half of 1 Mbps). It’s not a fast-enough connection for online gaming or streaming video content, but it’ll do for basic messaging, email, and web browsing if you’re patient.
    • FreedomPop also has a few options for free internet service. The company offers both free mobile phone service and free home internet service via 4G LTE connections. The high-speed internet claims to be faster than DSL (and definitely faster than dial-up), but you’re limited to 1 GB of data per month.
