Since our founding in 1962, we have always been more than just a business – we are an active member of each of the local communities we serve.
We take our social responsibility very seriously and are committed to creating positive change. While some of our programs are national in nature, many more are developed to serve the unique needs of the individual communities we serve. This commitment is an important part of the Cox culture at all levels.

Having a computer and internet service at home is no longer a luxury – it is a necessity. Cox understands this new reality and works in the communities we serve to provide affordable Internet and devices to low-income students.
Cox’s Connect2Compete program is open to families with K-12 children who qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In addition, Cox has partnered with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to support its ConnectHome initiative.
Since 2012, nearly 200,000 people have been connected to the internet through Cox’s Connect2Compete program – most of them for the very first time.
The program is already driving tangible results in our classrooms and our communities: in a 2015 survey of parents enrolled in the program, the grades of more than 50% of the students have improved and nearly 50% say their children are more interested in school. We are excited about this progress, but know more work can be done. Cox will continue to invest in programs and partnerships which will ensure all students have access to the tools and technology they need to succeed in the classroom and their careers.
With Connect2Compete, we are helping to make a difference in lives of students in our communities. If you know a family who might be eligible, visit www.connect2compete.org/Cox or call (855) 222-3252.
