Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion Now Offers Free Internet to Visitors Thanks to Comcast Lift Zone Program

Initiative Aims to Provide Free WiFi Connectivity in 80 Community Centers in Washington this Year

Comcast is now providing free internet service to visitors at the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion as part of the company’s effort to roll out WiFi-connected “Lift Zones” in local community centers throughout Washington in partnership with cities, community organizations and local nonprofit partners.

Through its Lift Zone initiative, Comcast is establishing WiFi-connected safe spaces for those needing internet access in 80 community centers statewide by the end of 2021. The company has unveiled 30 Lift Zones in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Island and Spokane counties since fall 2020. These locations offer internet connectivity to students and families that lack broadband access in the home.

Located at 5303 228th St. SW, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043, the Recreation Pavilion is a multi-purpose facility with an indoor 25-yard swimming pool that has a leisure pool with zero depth entry, spray toys, lazy river with current, teach pool area with a submerged bench, deep area, easy access with a wheelchair ramp, a therapy pool with a dedicated lift, dry sauna, fitness room, racquetball courts, dance studios, pre-school room, and interchangeable multi-purpose rooms for programs or rentals, and an indoor playground.

Lift Zones complement Comcast’s Internet Essentials program and is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to help connect low-income families to the Internet in and outside of the home. Internet Essentials is Comcast’s signature digital equity initiative and the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program. Since 2011, Internet Essentials has connected a cumulative total of more than 56,000 low-income residents to broadband Internet in Snohomish County.

This news also comes on the heels of Comcast’s recent $1 billion commitment over the next 10 years to help further close the digital divide and give even more low-income students and families the tools and resources they need to succeed in a digital world.

Internet Essentials has a comprehensive design that addresses each of the three major barriers to broadband adoption. This includes: multiple options to access free digital literacy training in print, online, and in person; the option to purchase a heavily subsidized, low-cost Internet-ready computer; and low-cost, high-speed Internet service for $9.95 a month, plus tax.
