More than 9 million of America's 56 million school-age kids do not have access to reliable internet at home, widening the gap between millions of students and the opportunities education can offer. In order to combat that issue T-Mobile created Project 10 Million. T-Mobile will give every participating district free wireless hotspots and 100 gigabytes of data per year for five years, plus access to at-cost laptops and tablets – all free to students. And, responding to COVID-19 and increased data needs, there are additional low cost plans available to schools. Today we hear from Mike Sievert about the project and its effects on families this fall.
