Kajeet Launches #connectednow Program

Every student needs access to online resources to succeed, but Internet access is still not a reality for everyone. In fact, 39% of U.S. students don’t have access outside the classroom. Kajeet has made it the company’s mission to change that.

When students have access to reliable Internet, they are more likely to succeed academically. Our goal is to help schools, districts, and communities create a safe, connected environment for students and their families.

Let Kajeet work with you to connect every student to the online tools they need to succeed in school and beyond. To help you get started, we have put together an affordable connectivity solution designed with students and educators in mind.

The #connectednow program includes a FREE Kajeet 4G LTE SmartSpot®. The Kajeet SmartSpot is a filtered 4G LTE Wi-Gi hotspot that connects students anytime, anywhere.

With this turnkey Education BroadbandTM data plan, students will receive enough data to complete their school work (up to 500MB per day, 15GB per month.) This inexpensive option will cost $15.97 with a 24-month minimum.

Your choice of a 4G LTE network is included in this exclusive package! Kajeet is the only Education Broadband provider available on all four major U.S. wireless networks. With the Kajeet Network Guarantee, your students will have access to the fastest, most reliable network in their area or Kajeet will switch your network at no cost to you.

Kajeet has one focus — education. The goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to connect your students and manage your program. That means no requirements or applications. Kajeet aims to provide you with everything you need to make your program a success.

Kajeet’s Sentinel Portal is included with any purchase or service. The core of Kajeet’s connectivity solutions is the Sentinel.
