Closing the Digital Divide: The Strive partners with Comcast

Our partnership with Comcast strives to close the digital divide, an essential step in improving k-12 public education. The future of education is technology. Without access to internet and a computer available at home, low-income students are at a large disadvantage, causing their academic achievement to suffer. According to the US Department of Commerce, only 52% of households with annual incomes under $30,000 have internet, versus 87% of those earning more.  Students growing up without internet at home are missing out on valuable opportunities, and their families may be unable to communicate with their children’s teachers and schools.

Internet Essentials, a new program from Comcast, is designed to expand Internet access and close the digital divide in three important ways. While in the program, Comcast customers receive:

1.  Affordable Internet at $9.95 per month. No price increases. No activation fee. No deposit.
2.  A low cost computer available for just $149, plus tax.
3.  Free Internet training.

Together, we will be helping to close the digital divide!  For more information, go to
