Through May 22nd, qualified schools activating new lines on qualified data-only plans for school-issued tablets, 4G LTE-enabled laptops and hotspot devices will get AT&T’s wireless data service at no cost for 60 days.1
In addition to providing Internet access, the initiative delivers online security ensuring safe distance learning for students. Schools understand the need to protect their students which is why AT&T is also making the Asavie powered AccessMyLANTM for the qualified lines available at no cost for 60 days.1 This service allows school administrators to manage the internet sites their students can access to help protect them from unsafe content and also to block malicious sites, malware and hacking attempts.

Combining AT&T and Asavie’s technologies ensures that K-12 students are connected and protected while studying remotely.”
“As schools respond to COVID-19 and plan for a new phase of distance learning, we need to ensure all students have Internet access to connect with their teachers and participate with their peers,” said Ralph Shaw, CEO of Asavie “Schools know they need to protect their students while online – which is why the Asavie powered AccessMyLAN security offering is so important for the delivery of a highly secure internet experience. This initiative offers a digitally secure environment, where we can safely bring all students online, so they can engage with others and continue to learn during this very challenging time.”
