Cox Providing Free Month of Internet

via the Connect2Compete Program


Building on our long-standing commitment to youth and their education during this immensely challenging time, Cox is offering Connect2Compete, our low-cost internet service, free for one month to families that don’t have an internet connection. The service is free for the first 60 days until May 15; those free 60 days begin on day one of service.

Cox is working to quickly connect as many families as possible. We have two easy ways to get students connected:

1. Families can directly apply for Connect2Compete service at The website is optimized for mobile use as most families are connecting with their mobile device.

2. Separate from Connect2Compete, families can subscribe to Starter Internet at a reduced rate of $19.99 with one month free and no need to provide documentation. This offer provides a temporary boost up to 50 Mbps download speeds, no annual contract or qualifications to help low income and those impacted from Coronavirus challenges, like seniors and college students. The first month is free for this service until May 15.

Additionally, Cox recently made several enhancements to Connect2Compete. These include faster speeds, remote helpdesk support, a discounted computer program with PCs for People and a Learn from Home toolkit. Full details are available at:
