broadband-KajeetStudent access to the internet outside of school is a growing concern among district technology leaders, and with one-third of U.S. public school students lacking broadband at home, the digital divide affects every district in the country.

Wireless service provider Kajeet has partnered with 4G LTE national digital network providers to connect more than 13,000 school districts to safe, affordable mobile broadband for at-risk students. Districts now have a choice in providing students with Kajeet Education Broadband on two major national carrier networks.

Worthington Schools in Ohio is the latest school district to benefit from the expanded Kajeet coverage area. Currently partnering with more than 50 districts in 20 states, Kajeet is keeping students connected on multiple wireless broadband networks to online textbooks, apps, emails, documents, and websites, as well as to their teachers, with its Kajeet Education Broadband solution to ensure that students have a level playing field for academic success and improved test scores.
