Combined Arms and U.S. VETS to host free, robust WiFi at their facilities for veterans and community members to get online to learn digital skills and use the Internet
Comcast announced plans to open two more WiFi-connected, laptop-equipped Lift Zones at Combined Arms and U.S. VETS. The new Lift Zones, which provide free, robust WiFi service powered by a Comcast Business solution, will enable thousands of veterans, family members, and the local community to take full advantage of all that the internet has to offer. Comcast will also equip each new Lift Zone with 50 laptop computers. Once these two sites are installed later this year, there will be a total of 52 Comcast Lift Zones across the Greater Houston area.
Comcast's Carol Eggert and Toni Beck met with representatives from Combined Arms and U.S. VETS at a luncheon in downtown on September 14th, 2022
U.S. VETS works to help veterans and their families find homes by offering tailored support to gain independence. Since 1997, the Houston branch has opened three facilities that provide programs, services, and administrative support for the more than 1,100 veterans they work with every month.
The donation is also part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to reach millions of people with the tools, resources, and skills needed to succeed in a digital world.
