Comcast is on a mission to ensure students have everything they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Over the last decade, we’ve connected five million students from low-income families to low-cost, high speed Xfinity Internet through the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. We’re creating more than 1,000 “Lift Zones” in community centers to provide internet connectivity and a safe place for students and families to get online. Now, we're committing $1 billion, over the next 10 years, to reach 50 million people from low-income families with the tools and resources they need to succeed in a digital world.
