Cox will double the download speed of its low-cost internet options ConnectAssist and Connect2Compete from 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps, effective March 31. The over 500,000 individuals participating in these programs will receive the faster speeds at no additional cost.
Cox also is participating in the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and has expanded eligibility for its low-cost internet program to match the ACP criteria.
With the application of the $30 ACP internet subsidy, more people will be able to receive free 100 Mbps internet service. Customers can visit cox.com/digitalequity to find out if they are eligible and sign up for these programs.
“We’re committed to the Affordable Connectivity Program as it aligns with our values and digital equity strategy to offer greater access to more people,” said Mark Greatrex, president of Cox Communications. “It’s a powerful example of how public and private partnerships can ensure households of all economic statuses can unlock the possibilities that high-speed broadband has to offer.”
Cox’s new partner portal is a one-stop destination to educate and engage organizations who want to work alongside Cox to champion digital equity for low-income families. For more, visit Cox.com/lowcostinternet.
