Introducing Access-EDU

Red River’s Answer to Equitable, Safe Internet Access

Since the advent of internet, schools have struggled with equity. Rural and poor students have historically been left behind as their more wealthy and urban counterparts could access research tools, connect to their teachers and peers, submit assignments at all hours and leverage the endless resources available. COVID-19 and a focus on remote learning only increased the digital divide.

Access-EDU could reverse course, with a safe, affordable way for districts to level the playing field.

Access-EDU utilizes private LTE technology and the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to create a cellular-based network for students and faculty to connect to their school’s internet. Users enjoy the same level of access and security, at costs more affordable than individual mobile hotspots.

Access-EDU was designed to improve internet access. For everyone.

Our core solution focuses on our systems of education, as students increasingly move to remote learning. However, the same private LTE technology can easily be adapted to serve hospitals, state and local governments and more.
