The Un-Carrier has been busy as of late. On the heels of the company finalizing its merger with Sprint, T-Mobile has been working steadily to expand 5G coverage and get high-speed internet into the hands of as many customers as possible. T-Mobile recently announced a three-part initiative that consists of free service to America’s First Responders and the T-Mobile Connect plan that offers unlimited talk and text and 2GB of data for as little as $15/month. T-Mobile Connect also adds an extra 500MB of data each year for up to five years at no additional cost.
The third and final phase of this initiative comes in the form of a 10 billion dollar commitment to our country’s education systems. Project 10 Million will span five years and will provide eligible school districts access to free internet for underserved students. This will come in the form of a free mobile hotspot and 100GB of yearly data at no cost to eligible families.
Education is the great leveler, but without internet access, kids will be left behind. T-Mobile has a big goal – to deliver connectivity to every child who needs it across the U.S. Starting now with our historic Project 10Million commitment, we’re going to help open A LOT of doors to opportunity that might have previously been closedT-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert

Project 10 Million will soon provide eligible students with tablets, PCs and Chromebooks at-cost to ensure a viable solution for at-home learning. Among these devices are the Samsung Chromebook 4 and the Lenovo 100e Chromebook. Participants in the project can get up to 5 devices at cost per eligible line.
