ATLANTA and WASHINGTON D.C. – May 9, 2022 – Leaders from Cox join White House officials today to announce a partnership about the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), making high-speed internet more affordable and accessible to households across the nation.
In participating in the ACP, eligible households will have access to Cox’s 100 Mbps high-speed internet service at no cost.
“Our commitment to digital equity continues to be our guiding purpose in ensuring that families stay connected at an affordable cost,” said Mark Greatrex, president of Cox Communications. “By participating in ACP, we can reach more low-income households with high-speed reliable internet service.”

With the alignment to the ACP $30 subsidy, more people can receive free internet access at higher speeds.
