T-Mobile for Education
T-Mobile brings an affordable unlimited hotpot that checks many of the boxes. It’s not as flexible as the Kajeet solution, but the cost is lower for more data connectivity.
T-Mobile’s service is $20 per month per hotspot, and with a 12 month commitment, and the hotspot is included at no additional cost. For service terms of less than 12 months, the hotspot costs $82. If you sign up for the 12 months and terminate early, the $82 is pro-rated. On a 24 month commitment, there is a bill credit which brings the monthly cost down to $15.17 per month.
T-Mobile includes a CIPA filter, but currently does not have a mechanism for the district to control the filter, as it is preset. There is a reporting and central management portal.
