Cox announced last week an expanded commitment to bridging the learning divide as part of its ongoing effort to support kids and families learning and teaching from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Until June 30, of next year Cox is suspending late fees and extending payment relief offerings for customers in the company’s low-cost internet program Connect2Compete who express an inability to pay due to pandemic hardships. “I would like to thank Cox Communications for their commitment. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that every Californian have the ability to connect to the internet and that every child has the technical capability to learn from home,” said Governor Gavin Newsom.

Meanwhile, Pat Esser, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cox Communications said during this time of distance learning, their focus remains on connecting low-income families with a K-12 student at home to the internet and keeping them connected during this unprecedented time.

“We continue to look at ways to support kids that need the tools to succeed and know it starts with an internet connection, device and digital resources,” said Esser.

Through June 30, 2021 and as part of Cox’s ongoing efforts to bridge the learning divide, continue no requirement of deposits or application fees and proactively waive late fees for eligible Connect2Compete customers, provide flexible payment arrangements for eligible customers who contact them with an inability to pay due to pandemic hardships, among other benefits. 

 Additional support offerings to improve the at-home learning experience that Cox has implemented throughout the pandemic, include several programs and a new offer for new qualifying families who sign up before September 30 to receive Connect2Compete free for 2 months, including free remote technical support just in time for back-to-school. 

Families can qualify for Connect2Compete easily from their mobile device or desktop by visiting www.cox.com/c2c.

In addition to connectivity, many students need equipment to get their work done. Cox continues to partner with local, regional and national organizations to provide discounted, refurbished laptops and accessories to families that qualify for the Connect2Compete program. The James M. Cox Foundation recently awarded a $100,000 grant to PCs for People, a nonprofit that is dedicated to providing high-quality, discounted computers to low-income families across Cox’s footprint nationwide.
