Education Broadband

What we solve: Your district's digital divide
Today’s students are technologically savvy and easily embrace digital learning. In fact, a recent study shows that more than 50 percent of students in grades 6 through 12 are online weekly to find resources for assignments and homework. Additionally, 30 percent of high school students use the Internet on a daily basis to complete their studies.

Within every district, there are hundreds, or even thousands, of students who do not have broadband Internet connections once they leave the classroom. Nationwide, more than 10 million students lack digital access at home.

Students who are at a disadvantage, qualify for free and reduced-cost meals, or are living below the poverty line feel the impact of the digital divide and far more than their more affluent classmates. Ultimately, this disadvantaged position jeopardizes the student’s performance, grades, and even graduation rates.
The Solution: Education Broadband
Kajeet provides a safe, affordable, mobile broadband solution called Education Broadband™ that connects disadvantaged students to the Internet outside of school. Our Education Broadband™ solution includes a Kajeet SmartSpot® device and the innovative Sentinel® cloud portal with controls that enable school districts to provide CIPA-compliant, education-only filtered Internet access to keep students focused on school work without worry of data abuse. Combine that with two nationwide networks for coverage, and you are ready to connect your students to any device, anywhere.
