Over the next 10 years, Comcast is committing $1 billion to connect 50 million people from low-income families with the tools and resources they need to succeed in a digital world. Locally, Comcast will connect Utah families to the Internet at home, equipping safe spaces with free WiFi, and working with Utah’s network of nonprofit community organizations, city leaders, and business partners/clients to create opportunities for low-income Utahns.
As a part of this announcement, Comcast is expanding its efforts to help Utahns gain access to the Internet and close the digital divide. Since 2011, Comcast has connected more than 160,000 low-income Utahns to a home internet connection – many for the first time through their Internet Essentials program. We’re proud to be a partner in this effort alongside many other organizations throughout Utah.
