One Connection is All It Takes

for qualifying households
  • No deposits or annual contracts

Step 1: Qualify

To be considered for the Connect2Compete program, applicants must meet and verify the following requirements:

  • Have at least one K-12 student living in the household
  • Participate in one of the following: the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), SNAP, TANF or Public Housing

Eligible families can apply online or by calling 1-855-222-3252. Paper applications will be accepted for those who were previously not approved. Additional proof is then required to determine eligibility.

Step 2: Enroll

After your household has qualified, you will be connected with a Cox Connect2Compete representative who will help you enroll for high-speed internet services. The representative will confirm that you are eligible for Cox services if you have :

  • Not subscribed to Cox High Speed Internet service in the last 90 days
  • No outstanding Cox bills or unreturned equipment

Step 3: Connect

Once enrolled, a Cox representative will schedule a visit to your home to install any necessary outlets, setup your WiFi modem and activate internet access. After that, it's time to connect!
