Okaloosa Co to offer high-speed internet to low income families
OKALOOSA COUNTY -- Providing high-speed internet to low-income families.
That's the goal of the "Connect-2-Compete" Program being launched by the Okaloosa County School District and Cox Communications.
Qualifying families will be eligible for internet service for just under 10-dollars 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.
The same program was launched in Escambia County last month.
