Student Internet Access is a Necessity

Internet access in the modern educational paradigm isn’t just a luxury - it’s a necessity. Accessing assignments, getting help with and submitting those assignments, watching lectures, doing research, contacting educators, checking grades, and participating in group assignments are all common tasks. 

Do your students have the connectivity they need? Or are they stranded at the digital divide, unable to fully access or utilize the resources they need for their education? 

From WiFi-enabled Smart Buses to mobile hotspots to wireless laptops and to private wireless networks, Kajeet has a variety of solutions that help bridge the digital divide. Read on to learn more about our solutions for education that help K12 and higher education institutions get students connected whenever and wherever they need it..

Managed Connectivity Solutions for K12

So much of the modern K12 education paradigm assumes and relies on students having on-demand internet connectivity – leaving those without it to fall behind their peers.

But K-12 students who fall behind academically are at a disadvantage for college and career readiness, widening the digital divide and ultimately causing skills gaps in the workforce. Increasing digital inclusion starts at the K-12 level, where you can make a difference for students without reliable Internet access at home by providing resources to help them succeed.

Kajeet SmartSpot, SmartBus, connectivity-enabled laptops and tablets, and the Sentinel platform that allows you to manage it all can make a real difference in student lives. Contact us to learn more about how we can help bridge the digital divide in your school or district.

Set Your Students Up for Success

For students who live without reliable internet at home, providing internet connectivity does more than just help get homework done. These students also need access to additional learning resources, ELL support tools, dual-enrollment programs, STEM programs, online courses, and virtual mental health services – and managed wireless connectivity for these students provides the access to those resources. Not sure how to connect your students to the tools they need to be successful in school and beyond? Kajeet can help.

Managed Connectivity Solutions for Higher Education

Education - Dorm Room Sentinel on Computer - RC

Just as in K-12 schools, college students who don’t have reliable internet access can quickly fall behind on school work. College and university students often have additional concerns – including costs of living, childcare, and additional responsibilities that K-12 students might not, making it even more challenging to afford reliable Internet. And disparities at the college or university level don’t just affect students while they are pursuing their education –future career prospects for those students can suffer as well.

Kajeet managed connectivity solutions for higher education – SmartSpot hotspots, private wireless networks, and connected devices like laptops and tablets – provide the consistent internet access needed to attend classes and complete assignments, ensuring that all students succeed academically as well as in the future.

What Our Customers Say


Working with Kajeet has been phenomenal… they have been involved and making sure that I have access to everything that I need. From a customer service standpoint, it’s been fantastic.

Mark Barham, Director of Information Technology | City of Williamsburg


It was really a partnership. Kajeet worked with us to understand the goals of the project and what we are trying to accomplish as a locality, and then married it together with the technology and Sentinel to manage it.

Mark Barham, Director of Information Technology | City of Williamsburg


I wish I had a program like Sentinel to manage the other items that I manage on a daily basis. It is a single pane of glass access to every device, helps me understand usage patterns, level-setting expectations for what residents would use this for.

Mark Barham, Director of Information Technology | City of Williamsburg


Although we have a very dedicated staff, the support provided by Kajeet has been incredibly helpful to us. Kajeet walked us through every step, which we really appreciate.
