Tech Leader’s $1M+ Investment to Change Lives

CI DE 2023 Recap

Comcast Texas, Houston’s largest internet service provider, will invest more than $1 million to shrink the local digital divide. The money will go toward boosting digital access, empowering communities and creating opportunities for thousands. The investment is part of Comcast’s Project UP – a comprehensive $1 billion initiative to advance digital opportunities across the nation and help build a future of unlimited possibilities. 

Digital Skills Training Programs 

More than 90% of today’s jobs require digital skills. To bridge this gap, the company will continue to provide training to boost digital skills and help Texans be more competitive in the workforce. 

Wi-Fi Connected “Lift Zones” 

Lift Zones are community spaces that offer free Internet access to students and families. In 2024, Comcast Texas will activate several new Lift Zones across the Houston area.


Connectivity programs give people the right tools and training to take advantage of the Internet. In 2024, Comcast Texas will provide hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to fund connectivity and adoption programs. 

“This investment in our communities will literally change generations of southeast Texas families,” said Jose Espinel, Comcast Texas’ Regional Senior Vice President. “Everyone deserves a chance to participate in the digital economy. You can’t do that without the resources and skills to use the Internet. Our commitment will ensure that people from all backgrounds can connect to the moments that matter most.” 

Comcast Texas’ 2024 grant funding and other support to local organizations will be announced throughout the year.
