School, Cox team up to offer Internet to low income families

The Escambia County school district is teaming up with Cox communications to providing high-speed internet for low-income families.

The program is called "connect-2-compete." Qualifying families will be eligible for internet service for just under $10 a month, plus tax.

Cox communications is also waiving all of the activation fees and equipment rental fees. With more teachers using online tools to educate kids, the need for home internet is more important than ever.

"Teachers in America ..... Using their wi-fi just to do their homework."
