Our idea is to facilitate:
- donation of internet data to specific schools by existing cell phone users
- cell phone service providers donate hotspot-enabled cell phones to specific schools
- school distribution of loaned cell phones to students
- cell service providers activate hotspots and hi-speed internet service
In achieving our first milestone of serving 500,000 students in the US, we will be able to create a scalable solution for the global community. We will seek partnerships with all major cell phone service providers to coordinate this service and give them the option to match all data donations. We will utilize funding to promote service and leverage our achievements to provide this service for 5 million students worldwide.
