Cox Offers Programs to Help Access Affordable Internet

Need affordable internet access? Cox Communications is participating in the FCC’s Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) program to help you get connected.

The Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) is a federal program to provide internet connectivity to students, school staff and library patrons while they are not on a school or library campus. Cox is offering a special ECF connectivity solution called Cox Home Connectivity for Education. Qualified customers can begin registering today on

For those receiving program approval, Cox’s ECF offering will equip customers with internet service with speeds of 50 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload and a wifi modem. The ECF program will subsidize costs for internet and equipment that the FCC determines are reasonable. Cox’s ECF offering will cost (per household) a one-time $20 equipment charge and $30 per month for internet service, with no term agreement, no deposit, and access to 3m+ Cox Hotspots nationwide until June 30, 2022.
