COMCAST ANNOUNCES INTERNET ESSENTIALS HAS CONNECTED MORE THAN
1 MILLION LOW-INCOME AMERICANS TO THE INTERNET AT HOME
David L. Cohen Testifies on Broadband Adoption to the Subcommittee on Communications,
Technology, and the Internet of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation
Comcast’s Broadband Adoption Program is Designed to Help Close the Digital Divide
WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 29, 2013 – Today, Comcast Executive Vice President David L. Cohen
announced that Comcast’s Internet Essentials program – the largest and most comprehensive broadband
adoption program in America – has connected more than 1 million low-income Americans to broadband Internet
in their homes, most for the very first time.
This announcement came in testimony before the Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the
Internet of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. The hearing examined the
critical importance of expanding broadband adoption for Internet service nationwide and its crucial role in
providing new opportunities in education, health care, and employment.
“About 30 percent of Americans don’t have broadband Internet service at home. As the nation’s largest Internet
service provider, Comcast has focused its efforts on getting these Americans online. Thanks to the help of
thousands of community partners, in just over two years, we have connected an estimated 1 million low-income
individuals, or more than 250,000 families, to the Internet at home. To put that in perspective, that’s more than
the entire population of a city like San Francisco or a state like Delaware or Montana,” said Cohen in his Senate
testimony. “However, we still have a long way to go. We are committed to working to expand and improve the
program and to engaging with our nonprofit and government partners to help bridge this so-called digital divide.”
“Now, it’s more important than ever to ensure that all young people have access to technology and broadband
services during non-school hours to ensure they develop the skills necessary to be successful in school and
their careers. We work with kids every day and see the difference that providing critical services, such as
access to the Internet and technology training, can make in the future success of a young person. We also see
the negative impact when that access is not available,” said Jim Clark, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs
of America. “Overcoming these obstacles, in particular the variety of digital literacy issues that act as a barrier
for our young people, requires commitment and persistence. Boys & Girls Clubs of America is proud to partner
with Comcast to close the digital divide and enable access for all.”
Internet Essentials empowers families to use the transformative technology of the Internet in their own homes to
get ahead in work, school and life. Based on a survey of Internet Essentials customers:
98 percent say their kids use the Internet for homework;
94 percent feel that Internet access at home has had a positive impact on their child’s grades;
66 percent use the Internet for health care and government services; and
59 percent feel that the Internet helped someone in their household find a job.
“Social and economic inequities in our country create an opportunity gap that needs to be addressed,” said
LULAC Executive Director Brent Wilkes. “LULAC members know that having access to a broadband connection
can help parents and children narrow that gap through online access to health care options, educational
resources and vocational opportunities. LULAC is proud to partner with Comcast in order to address the
challenges in our community with technology. Internet Essentials is a model not only for the technology industry
but for public-private partnerships more broadly.”
About Internet Essentials:
Internet Essentials from Comcast is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program.
It provides low-cost broadband service for $9.95 a month plus tax; the option to purchase an Internet-ready
computer for under $150; and multiple options to access free digital literacy training in print, online, and inperson. A household is eligible to participate if it has at least one child eligible to participate in the National
School Lunch Program (NSLP), is located where Comcast offers Internet service, has not subscribed to
Comcast Internet service within the last 90 days, and does not have an overdue Comcast bill or unreturned
equipment. Families that enroll in the program can continue to enjoy the service as long as one child eligible to
participate in the NSLP is living in the household.
