“While our nation continues to adapt to our new normal of living during a global pandemic, I am pleased that Virginia continues to be a leading tech hub of flourishing businesses and career opportunities. I am proud to announce that Kajeet is a 2021 NVTC Tech 100 honoree and is a key contributor to making our region a vibrant and inclusive place to live, work and learn,” said Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of NVTC.
2021 has been a landmark year for Kajeet and its commitment to launching and enhancing industry-leading connectivity solutions, such as:
Kajeet HomeWireless, which enables school districts to deliver fast, secure and CIPA-compliant access to internet-based learning resources for multi-student households
