Sprint 1 Million Project

 

About This Project
Through the 1 Million Project, Miami-Dade County Public Schools will partner with Sprint to help close the homework gap by providing free devices (smartphone) and wireless service to eligible low income high school students who do not have home internet access. Eligible students will have use of the device and Internet service for the time they are enrolled in high school, up to four years. This is a five-year project, starting in 2017-2018. Each year, devices will be distributed to eligible 9th grade students who will keep them until they graduate from high school.
Students will receive the following:
 
Smartphone (Android) for use at home and school
 
3 GB per month of free high-speed LTE data while on the Sprint Network
 
Unlimited data is available at 2G speeds
 
Free hotspot capability and unlimited domestic calls/texts while on the Sprint Network
