Students who may not have off-campus access to the Internet can take advantage of our unique Kajeet for Education Technology Loan Program. Using a library checkout system as a model, your school can keep devices on the shelf and available for student use. The most commonly used device is a Kajeet SmartSpot™ that can provide 3G mobile broadband Internet access to any WiFi-capable device. When not in use, there's no cost - no rate plan or fees to worry about. When borrowed by a student outside of school, it is set to only access specific resources for the purpose it is being checked out for. This keeps the cost of providing equal access down substantially for a school with students suffering from inequity.
The distribution of SmartSpot™ via a Technology Loan Program is a very affordable model for schools looking to provide off-campus Internet access to their students.
It is the simple math we teach our kids today – if you deploy 10,000 tablets with an embedded 3G modem that costs $140 extra and a monthly rate plan on an annual contract at $45 you have just spent $1,220 per user or $12,200,000 for a 2-year deployment. By maintaining a 1:5 ratio of SmartSpots™ available for student checkout, off-campus education broadband access could be provided for under $1M – hardware and service combined! Additionally, any SmartSpots™ sitting dormant (checked-in) wouldn’t incur any data service charges!
