Low-Cost Internet for Students

In today’s world, having access to reliable internet is critical for students – especially during the time of virtual learning. However, not all students have equal access to internet at home.

In fact, 15% of school-aged children in the United States do not have broadband internet access at home. Due to COVID-19, it’s imperative that students find ways to break this digital divide during distance learning.
