Why is internet access essential? A good education, job & health require it. We need to close the gap. #netinclusion

Mobile Beacon’s i3 Internet Inclusion Initiative is helping to close the #digitaldivide in the Twin Cities. Through our i3 partner, PCs for People, we’ve provided 4G LTE high-speed Internet access to more than 5,000 Twin Cities residents below the 200% poverty level. See the Mobile Beacon and PCs for People team in action as we worked together to distribute 4G LTE devices to any remaining Twin Cities WiMAX subscribers before the 3/31/16 WiMAX network shutdown. http://bit.ly/1RZWC5Z

On March 29, Mobile Beacon is joining our i3 partner PCs for People at their St. Paul office for a final push to preserve Internet access for hundreds of the Twin Cities’ most vulnerable residents.

We’ll be passing out free 4G LTE devices and signing people up for Internet service so they can make the switch to LTE!
