Free or Low-Cost Internet through Cox's Connect2Compete Program

FCPS is working to ensure that all FCPS students have Internet access at home. Through the FCPS Cox Connect-to-Compete program, FCPS will pay for Internet service for qualifying families through June 2022. Cox’s Connect2Compete program provides low-cost internet to families that meet these qualifications:  

  • have at least one child that attends an FCPS school; 

  • participate in, or qualify for, one of these government subsidy programs: The National School Lunch Program, SNAP, TANF or Public Housing; and

  • have not had Cox standard Internet services in the home within the last 90 days. 

If your family is in need of Internet service at home so that your student can participate in virtual learning, please contact the Belvedere office at 703-916-6800 to begin the application process.
