Our Public Policy
Public policy issues affect our customers, our employees, and our business every day.
Over the last 10 years, Comcast has connected over 10 million people from low-income families to low-cost, high-speed Internet at home with our industry-leading Internet Essentials program, which remains priced at $9.95 per month even after six speed increases over the past decade. Now, Comcast is committing $1 billion over the next 10 years to reach 50 million people with the connectivity, skills, training, and resources they need to be ready for anything.
Comcast is partnering with non-profits and city leaders to create safe spaces for students and families to connect and learn. In 2021 alone, WiFi-connected Lift Zones across the country will enable students to complete over 25 million hours of homework and remote learning.
Our tradition of hiring and supporting the military community began with our founder, World War II U.S. Navy veteran Ralph Roberts, and has continued to today. Whether you’re a member of the military community beginning your civilian career, a veteran entrepreneur accelerating your business, a military spouse, or an organization working on behalf of local military initiatives, we hope you’ll join us in supporting those who have dedicated their lives to service.
Comcast is committed to an Open Internet. We do not block, slow down or discriminate against lawful content. We believe in full transparency in our customer policies. We are for sustainable and legally enforceable net neutrality protections for our customers.
We know that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company is a more innovative and successful one. That’s why we embrace diversity of background, perspective, culture, and experience throughout every aspect of our business. From the people who power our teams, to the products we create, the stories we tell, and the organizations we support, we believe in fostering a better and more accepting workplace and a world where everyone has an opportunity to succeed.
Comcast RISE – a multi-faceted program offering grants, marketing services, and technology upgrades – was created to strengthen and empower small businesses hard hit by COVID-19. As a part of our expanded Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitment, Comcast RISE, which stands for “Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment,” aims to help Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-owned small businesses, which includes Hispanic and Asian American owned businesses, get a fresh start and boost their operations.
We’ve built a powerful network with a simple purpose: keeping our customers connected — always. As connectivity becomes ever more important, we’re working hard to build and evolve a smart, reliable network that delivers fast Internet speeds for customers to browse, videoconference, stream and game.
