The Sentinel: Comcast creating 20 WiFi hotspots across metro area to support online learning

Story excerpt:

"Comcast will create 20 WiFi hotspots across the Aurora metro area by the end of the year in order to help connect low-income families to the internet when classrooms are closed because of the pandemic, the company announced Tuesday.

The announcement was made in partnership with Colorado Attorney General Phil Weister and Denver and Aurora mayors Michael Hancock and Mike Coffman, who participated in a virtual press conference on Tuesday.

The project is part of Comcast’s 'internet essentials' program, which has helped connect 300,000 low-income Coloradans to the internet. Comcast will also provide a $25,000 grant to the Aurora Public Schools Foundation to provide online safety programming and technology resources."
