Home Internet Access and Modems
Published:September 15, 2011
Free dial-up home Internet access is available again this year for all 7th and 8th grade students and high school students who attend a MLTI 1:1 high school and who are eligible for free or reduced cost lunch. We have made the application and set-up procedures quick and easy in order to maximize the number of students participating in the program.
This service is being provided through a cooperative agreement between Great Works Internet (GWI) and the Maine Learning Technology Foundation (MLTF), a privately funded non-profit organization that supports ancillary services associated with MLTI.
We hope that you will encourage your eligible students to take advantage of this free offer. Home Internet access is an important part of the MLTI experience and is available to most of your students, but effectively denied to those who can’t afford it. Anything that you can do to spread the word on this offer--through teachers and directly to the students and their parents--would be of great benefit to those students who are going without Internet access.
Please visit the Home Internet Access page for more information.
Schools with students who qualify for the free Internet access should also request a modem online. Schools should also see if any of their teachers have dial-up Internet access and need a modem. Completing this form will alert the MLTI Project Office that your student or teacher needs a modem for their MacBook.
