At home WiFi hotspots for students, supplementing community WiFi coverage, negotiating open access with local providers, using school buses as roving network nodes, and hardware-lending programs are just some of the strategies being adopted in local communities to get more people online. We will hear from a few local experts doing this now, who will share how to get started, resources that could be used by your community, and more. We will take questions from attendees via the Q&A button during the live online event and relay them to the panel as time allows.
Please use the link provided to register, and we look forward to your questions at the event.
