New virtual/distance learning wireless rate plans

Date Posted: Thursday, July 30, 2020

VITA is offering new virtual/distance learning-specific wireless rate plans to VA school systems. The plans provide 4G/LTE high-speed internet access wherever it is available in the commonwealth and are “unlimited.” The wireless carriers participating are: AT&T, Sprint/T-Mobile and US Cellular. All of the distance learning rate plans include content filtering that is compliant with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).

These plans contain more guaranteed high-speed data than normal government plans and were established to provide Virginia schools (primarily K-12) the ability to acquire and distribute wireless devices to students who lack adequate access to the Internet and who need to participate in virtual learning activities. Depending on the wireless carrier, school systems will save more than 50% off of the normal government rate plan.
