Mobile Beacon, a leader in providing low cost, 4G mobile broadband service exclusively to the nonprofit and educational sectors, is today announcing the expansion of service to 38 additional cities in 18 states across the country.

In the near future, Mobile Beacon will be announcing two new grants that include the donation of laptops, modems and security systems to schools in selected cities. These will be made available through a grant application process.
"A unique aspect of today's announcement is that many of these cities are in smaller, underserved, or more rural parts of the country where the effects of the digital divide are prominent," said Katherine Messier, Director of Broadband Services. "While our 4G service is not commercially available in these cities, within a limited coverage area, we're making our service available to educational entities where currently this next-generation, high-speed Internet service may be either unavailable or cost-prohibitive," she added.
New Mobile Beacon service areas include these midwest cities: Hot Springs, Little Rock, AR; Colorado Springs, La Junta, CO; Fort Wayne, South Bend, IN; Des Moines, IA; Emporia, Great Bend, Hays, Salina, KS; Holt, Lansing, MI; Toledo, Youngstown, OH; Enid, Lawton, OK.
