Kajeet Teams Up with Four Major Wireless Carriers in the United States
Kajeet is now working with the country's four major 4G LTE wireless network carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon — to deliver affordable Internet to more students at home or on school buses.
“Having doubled our national carrier partnerships allows Kajeet to connect even more students in all areas of the country — rural, urban and suburban — helping the nation move closer to closing the Homework Gap,” said Daniel Neal, CEO and founder of Kajeet, in a company statement. “By giving school districts four great network choices, something unique to Kajeet, school technology leaders can select the provider (or providers) with the best coverage at the most affordable price point so all students can get their homework done. It is a great time for school districts to close this gap and focus on connecting students to success.”

The wireless solutions company released Kajeet Education Broadband in 2013 to connect students to the Internet for educational purposes. Kajeet’s hardware, software and networking service is CIPA-compliant, with educational filters and policy controls that administrators can use to ensure students access only appropriate content, according to the company. The Kajeet Sentinel cloud portal, for instance, constantly categories URLs to filter out any non-educational content — denying access to 128 million non-educational websites each month. Sentinel can be combined with the company’s portable hotspot or school bus WiFi solutions.
Last school year, the company reports that students used Kajeet Education Broadband to spend 2.5 million hours online for educational purposes.
