Disability isn’t the lack of ability, it’s the lack of a solution

According to Pew Research Center, 23% of people with disabilities say they never go online with 57% saying they do not have a home broadband connection. That’s why, through Comcast’s Project UP initiative, we’re working to address and break down the unique barriers to connectivity for people with disabilities through a series of efforts, including:

Accessibility Support Center

We’re making it easier to get connected through our Accessibility Support Center, which was created nearly a decade ago as one of the nation’s first call centers specializing in support for people with disabilities.

ASL Support Center

In 2019, we expanded call center support to include American Sign Language—the fourth most-used language in the United States—through a partnership with Connect Direct, a subsidiary of Communication Service for the Deaf.

By using our platforms and reach, we hope to raise awareness for disability inclusion, create better understanding around the broad spectrum of disabilities, and inspire action to create a more inclusive society for all.

At Comcast NBCUniversal we work every day to create and foster a culture of inclusion across our company that represents and supports people of all abilities - from implementing more inclusive hiring and recruitment practices, to providing on-the-job assistive technology support, to training and mentoring resources that help to uplevel accessibility skills and knowledge across the company.
