Mobile Beacon 4G wireless internet devices donations and offers low cost $10/month 4G service to schools - This is our most popular donation program.

This program is a great solution for providing equity to students who don’t have internet access at home.

  2. Next, we’ll email you a code. Then you link to Mobile Beacon to activate your subscription.

  3. Pick your donated device. You can select from a personal USB modem, a wireless hotspot for up to 8 users, or a 4G Wi-Fi router that will connect up to 10 devices on just one subscription. Digital Wish charges a small administrative fee at checkout.

You can use these 4G devices to connect laptops, smartphones and tablets to the Internet from any location within the 4G coverage area. Hotspot devices can connect 8 to 10 people to the internet on only one plan!  Schools nationwide can get up to 10 devices per site.
