Partnership between Kajeet and CDW-G expands internet availability in districts across the country

internet-kajeetWireless provider Kajeet and IT solution provider CDW-G have partnered on the Kajeet Education Broadband program in order to ensure that students have the home internet access necessary to complete homework and research assignments.

As modern education becomes more technologically focused, students and teachers alike need to be able to access the internet from wherever they are learning, studying, teaching, and grading.

While 99 percent of schools in America have internet connection, the number of students with internet access at home is much lower.
