Commitment to Education

Comcast is on a mission to ensure students have what they need to be successful. Over the last decade, we’ve connected four million students from low-income families to low-cost, high speed Xfinity Internet through the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. Now, 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.
