Our Mission

Our mission is to affordably connect nonprofits to the high-speed Internet access they need to better serve our world.

In a world of limited resources, we believe connecting nonprofits, schools and community anchor institutions is a critical investment in our nation’s future. Working in partnership with them, we can improve broadband access and digital literacy for millions of Americans, especially underserved groups such as the elderly, low-income and disabled.

Our mission is tied closely to our roots: Mobile Beacon was founded by one of the largest Educational Broadband Service (EBS) providers in the United States. The mission of EBS, to power education through broadband, is the keystone of our organization. It is the basis for our pricing and programs, which seek to make broadband affordable, break down barriers to access, and bring equal educational and digital opportunity to all Americans.

Digital Wish Donation Program

  • Create instant, wireless access in the classroom
  • Create a low-cost backup Internet source to ensure lesson plans aren’t interrupted by slow speeds or a lost Internet connection
  • Provide mobile access to teachers and staff
