As the largest private telecom company in America, Cox Communications is committed to creating meaningful moments of human connection through broadband applications and services. One way the company achieves its mission is through partnering with organizations to close the digital divide. Locally, Cox New Orleans’ efforts have proven especially helpful during the challenges of the current pandemic.

“The world changed overnight, and in response, so did we,” says Kevin Monroe, Market Vice President of Cox New Orleans. “These changes empowered us to continue meeting our customers where they are so that they can work, play, teach, and connect with friends and loved ones,” he says.

Cox New Orleans recently partnered with Jefferson Parish Schools to connect families to low-cost, high quality internet to help ease the transition to remote learning and working. The company also worked closely with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana to create a technology center to keep people connected through a community setting. The Hispanic Chamber has also been providing digital literacy courses through the Cox Digital Academy in both English and Spanish.

“We applaud our partners at Jefferson Parish Schools and the Hispanic Chamber for their innovation
and creative solutions to connect students and communities, advance distance learning, and promote workforce readiness. Together, we are making a difference to close the digital divide,” says Monroe.
