Bridge the broadband affordability gap.
OUR NEW MISSION
Without high-speed Internet access at home, Americans can’t send their children to school, work remotely, or access healthcare, job training, the social safety net, or critical government services. EducationSuperHighway’s new mission is to close the digital divide for the 18 million households that have access to the Internet but can’t afford to connect. We focus on America’s most unconnected communities, where more than 25% of people don’t have Internet.
Exchange data with Internet Service Providers to identify students who lack home broadband.
Deploy free Wi-Fi to the 20-25% of unconnected Americans who live in 120,000 apartment buildings.
Help households sign-up for federal broadband programs and home broadband service.
OUR SHARED GOAL
Get a discount of up to $30 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
Join over 130 regional and national Internet Service Providers who are helping school districts identify students who lack home broadband.
47 million students are connected, and 99.3% of America’s schools have a high-speed broadband connection.
