Lift Zones initiative presented by Comcast at 45 sites across state

FARMINGTON — While access to high-speed Internet remains elusive in many places in San Juan County, four nonprofit organizations or social service agencies in the area now offer the service to their clients, thanks to a telecommunications provider.

The Comcast Corporation has created 45 so-called “Lift Zones” across New Mexico, including five in San Juan County, which provide free broadband connectivity to community members.

The local Lift Zones are located at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Farmington and Bloomfield, Capacity Builders in Farmington, the Goodwill of New Mexico Farmington center, and the annex/fitness center at the Bonnie Dallas Senior Center in Farmington.

The initiative is part of the company’s Internet Essentials program that was launched in 2011, which has helped provide nearly 300,000 low-income New Mexico residents with a home Internet connection, according to a news release from Comcast.
