Armstrong increases data allowance plans to assist virtual learning

ORRVILLE  As many school districts are forced to adjust from in-person and hybrid learning plans to full virtual learning, Armstrong expects to see data consumption rise much like the trends seen in March and April of this year. Effective Thursday, Nov. 26, 2020, all residential levels of Armstrong’s Zoom Internet will now have an additional 500 gigabytes of data added to their monthly allowance, according to a news release. This temporary change will give families the ability to have their children attend school from home without creating a significant impact on their normal internet usage.

Armstrong realizes how critical internet services continue to be for families at this time.

“Adding an additional 500 gigabytes per month to the existing allowance levels is a significant increase and should help to put minds at ease,” Mike Bricker, General Manager for Armstrong’s Orrville system, said in the news release.

Armstrong’s average monthly data consumption for residential internet customers is 300-350 gigabytes per month.

Armstrong recently relaunched its Zoom Extreme product, providing unlimited data, the fastest speeds available, and whole-home enhanced Wi-Fi. Armstrong customers can also purchase unlimited data for any residential Zoom service level for only $35 per month. More information is available at

Armstrong provides industry leading high-speed ZOOM Internet with Enhanced Wi-Fi, advanced television powered by EXP, and telephone services to residential and commercial customers in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Maryland, and Kentucky. Armstrong is America’s 11th largest cable television provider, according to SNL Kagan, an offering from S&P Global Market Intelligence.
