Affordable Home Internet

“Technology has transformed the way we do business, receive healthcare, and communicate with our loved ones, yet close to 1 in 5 Americans do not use the Internet. Disproportionately from low-income and minority communities, these populations remain isolated from our digital society.”

While Chromebooks are extremely useful, even when there is no internet connection, having access to the internet expands our students’ ability to enrich their education and love of learning. However, affordability can definitely impact a family’s ability to have internet access in their home.
