As part of its ongoing commitment to help connect low-income families to the Internet so they can fully participate in 
educational opportunities and the digital economy, Comcast today announced it has equipped 50 locations in Houston and 
surrounding areas with free WiFi enabled Lift Zones. 
Working with its network of nonprofit partners, Comcast is providing robust WiFi hotspots in safe spaces designed to 
help students get online, participate in distance learning and do their homework. This initiative provides free 
connectivity inside partner community centers for the next three years. 
'We are proud to partner with community organizations across Houston and surrounding areas and equip them with free 
internet service to provide safe, fast, and reliable connectivity,' said Ralph Martinez, regional senior vice 
president, Comcast Houston. 'The COVID-19 crisis put many at risk of being left behind, accelerating the need for 
comprehensive digital equity and Internet adoption programs to support them. We hope these Lift Zones will help those 
who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to connect to effective distance learning at home.' 
Each Lift Zone location will be outfitted with a robust WiFi solution, powered by Comcast Business, at no cost. The 
sites are equipped with a combination of Comcast Business' award-winning Business Internet, WiFi Pro and SecurityEdge 
solutions; customized based on the size and unique connectivity needs of each location. 
Some of the Houston and surrounding area community organizations that have established Lift Zones in their respective 
facilities include Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, the City of Houston, and the City of Galveston. A full list 
of Comcast Lift Zones in Houston and surrounding areas, can be found here. 
Earlier this year, Comcast announced a USD1 billion commitment over ten years in continued support of digital equity, 
including its Lift Zones initiative, which aims to establish WiFi-connected safe spaces in 1,000+ community centers 
nationwide for students and adults by the end of 2021. 
Lift Zones complement Comcast's Internet Essentials program, which has helped connect approximately 10 million 
low-income people to the Internet at home since 2011, including almost one million Texans.
