Cox works with White House to connect households to free internet
Cox Communications has joined the White House’s efforts to get qualifying households signed up for the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), making high-speed internet more affordable and accessible to households across the nation. The ACP provides government subsidies of up to $30 a month for qualifying households for their internet bill ($75 for Tribal lands). Customers see the subsidy amount as a credit on their monthly internet bill.
Cox offers several affordable internet programs to qualifying households to bridge the digital divide. Households participating in the ACP who have Cox’s $30 monthly ConnectAssist, or $9.95 monthly Connect2Compete (K-12 households) internet tier could receive their intConnectAssist, free. Customers who choose a higher-level internet tier can still apply the ACP subsidy credit to their bill.
Eligible households participating in the ACP will have access to Cox’s 100 Mbps high-speed internet service at no cost. Qualifications for the ACP include participation in one of the following government subsidy programs: National School Lunch Program (NSLP), SNAP, TANF, Federal Public Housing, LIHEAP, WIC, Head Start, Pell Grant for current academic year, Tribal Programs, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Veterans Pension & Survivors Benefits or proof that income is 200% or less than federal poverty level guidelines.
