Wi-Fly Lending Launch Kit – grants from Mobile Beacon

Mobile Beacon provides mobile hotspot connectivity through Sprint’s 4G LTE network. I imagine you have to be covered by Sprint to take full advantage of this deal – but it’s a heck of an opportunity…

Connecting Communities to a Brighter Future

The internet is a powerful enabler for social change; yet, for 34 million Americans it remains out of reach. A disproportionate number of these people include vulnerable populations such as low-income families or individuals, seniors, and adults living with a disability.

Mobile Beacon works hand-in-hand with community organizations to create digital inclusion programs that provide the internet to the people that need it most. Together, we help connect people to this vital tool to improve their lives.

Clearing the Runway for More Digital Inclusion Programs

You can be a part of this life-changing work. We know that local community anchor institutions understand the evolving needs of their communities best. That’s why we’re offering the Wi-Fly Lending Launch Kit to help you create programs that will really take off.

When you become one of our pilot sites, you’ll have access to the full Wi-Fly Lending Launch Kit which includes:

  • 25 donated 4G LTE mobile hotspots
  • FREE unlimited 4G LTE data plans during the pilot program
  • 25 donated Lenovo Thinkpad E560 laptops

That’s an estimated value of $20,000!

Do you have a brilliant idea for maximizing affordable, high-speed and mobile internet to serve the people in your community? Then apply to join our crew!
