Mobile Beacon Lowers Prices On All 4G Modems
Lower prices mean more affordable access for schools and nonprofits
NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Mobile Beacon (www.mobilebeacon.org), a provider of low-cost, 4G mobile broadband service to schools and nonprofits around the country, has lowered its prices on all 4G modems and hotspots. On average, this will result in a 33% cost reduction on 4G devices for nonprofit organizations. The savings come because of lower prices from Mobile Beacon’s equipment supplier. As a nonprofit committed to making broadband services affordable for other nonprofits, Mobile Beacon is passing these savings on to its customers.
New pricing is as follows:
- Wi-Fi Modem: ($73) This device is a modem with integrated Wi-Fi router that provides 4G broadband connectivity and local networking capabilities.
- USB Modem: ($36) This lightweight, portable device connects one computer, laptop, or PC tablet to Mobile Beacon’s 4G Internet service.
- Mobile Hotspot: ($69) This pocket-sized device provides mobile connectivity for up to eight Wi-Fi devices, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets, printers and other Apple iOS devices.
Mobile Beacon also offers a limited number of 4G devices to schools, libraries and other nonprofits through TechSoup.org and DigitalWish.org donation programs. If organizations need devices beyond what is available as a donation, they can now purchase additional devices at Mobile Beacon’s new, lower prices.
Mobile Beacon continues to provide unlimited 4G data plans for $10/month on all devices.
“Mobile Beacon’s mission is to make affordable broadband service available to schools, libraries, and nonprofits, so they can better carry out their missions,” said Katherine Messier, Managing Director of Mobile Beacon. “We deliver this through our low-cost unlimited data plans, product donation programs, and now by passing on the additional savings we receive from our supplier to our customers.”
