Digital Literacy Partnerships with Schools in the USA

In June of 2017T-Mobile USA launched a new program to provide students across the nation with equal access to learning for academic success and build the digital skill set that will help them compete in today’s digital economy. This new program is called EmpowerED, and it’s a special education offering that provides wireless devices and service to schools in low-income communities. In the first six months of operation, this program provided over13,000 devices and lines of service to help schools and students succeed. 

EmpowerED is a no-cost program for students and their families. All data plans include T-Mobile’s Web Guard CIPA compliant content filter that prevents access to adult content through three usage levels that include child, teen and young adult.  All school systems participating in EmpowerED receive planning, implementation and deployment support.
