Our Impact

Working side-by-side with our schools, government, and non-profit partners, we have connected more than 1,500,000 families—over 6 million low-income Americans—to the power of the internet in their homes.
This program has grown to be our largest and most successful community investment initiative, and is now a part of our organizational DNA. The spirit of the program truly aligns with our mission to improve and enrich our communities.
When our communities thrive, so do we.
Since 2011, we’ve built a network of over 2,000 volunteers and over 9,000 non-profit and educator partners to help spread the word about Internet Essentials. Our success would not be possible without their help. All told, we’ve provided more than $500 million of support for digital literacy training, benefiting over 8.5 million people.
And we’re not done yet…
