PHLConnectED will connect eligible pre-K–12 student households with access to free, reliable internet service through summer 2023. Participants will not pay any out-of-pocket expenses or installation fees. The program will also provide digital skills training and support.
There are two core components of PHLConnectED:
- Wired, high-speed, reliable internet to the home from Comcast’s Internet Essentials program, or a high-speed mobile hotspot from T-Mobile for families who need a mobile internet solution.
- Digital skills training and tech support.
PHLConnectED is possible thanks to collaboration among business and civic leaders who came together to support Philadelphia students.
