  • PHLConnectED: Giving Internet to 35,000 students
    • PHLConnectED will connect up to 35,000 K-12 student households with internet service in Philadelphia.  The program will offer eligible student households up to two years of high-speed internet.  Participants will not pay any out-of-pocket expenses or installation fees.  PHLConnectED has three key components:
      • Provide eligible K-12 households with wired, high-speed, reliable internet from Comcast's Internet Essentials program, or a high-speed mobile hotspot for families who are housing-insecure
      • Ensure K-12 public school students have the devices they need
      • Offer outreach, digital navigation, and digital skills training
    • PHLConnectED prioritizes families with the greatest need for internet service.  We will focus on connecting K-12 families who do not have any internet access, who have only mobile phone internet access, or who are homeless or housing-insecure.
