Hotspots and Bandwidth: Using 1Million Project Cell Phones and Hot Spots for Internet Access

School NewsComments Off on Hotspots and Bandwidth: Using 1Million Project Cell Phones and Hot Spots for Internet Access


If you are using a Sprint 1Million Project cell phone or hotspot for home Internet access, be aware that these devices have a monthly limit of 10GB for high-speed data. After you reach that monthly cap, your Internet speed will slow down significantly. For this reason, students and families who have received these devices should only use them for school. Students should not use these devices to play games or watch videos, as this will quickly use up the data on the device and cause Internet speed to be throttled.


Written Instructions

Instructional Videos in English, Spanish, Arabic, Cantonese, and Vietnamese






Huge appreciation to Mario Capitelli and Youth Beats: After hearing that many families were struggling with logging on and connecting to the hotspots, he and his team went into action and produced these instructional videos in six languages! Amazing job!
