Great news! Our internet providers, Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon, have succeeded in the injunction against Sprint. Clear's service will no longer turn off on November 6, 2015. The court has ordered Sprint to keep all active devices working for 90 days, which is until February 4, 2016. Sprint is filing an appeal, however, so we'll let everyone know if this changes.
The Pioneer Press has written an article about our new partnership with Comcast's Internet Essentials program. We can now help people sign up and will have 2 in-person events to facilitate sign-up. Click here to read about it.
Mobile Beacon and Mobile Citizen filed a lawsuit against Sprint on October 14th, 2015 concerning the internet transition from Clear's WiMax network over to Sprint's faster LTE network.

Mobile Beacon and Mobile Citizen, both nonprofits geared towards providing low cost internet services to those in need, have created a petition to pressure Sprint to accelerate their timeline for providing a low cost internet service to former Clear customers. Nearly 300,000 people are losing internet access when Clear's network is shut off by Sprint on November 6th, 2015. Tell Sprint that this is unacceptable by adding your signature to this petition: https://www.change.org/p/sprint-and-marceloclaure-don-t-cut-off-300-000-people-from-internet-access-stopsprint
Last week some of our staff members were traveling around Southwestern Minnesota to distribute 100 computers to families in need through a generous grant from the Blandin Foundation. Our first stop was in Wednesday afternoon in Lamberton, MN for a distribution event at Red Rock Central secondary school for families with school age children. Our next event was midday Thursday at the Redwood Area School District office in Redwood Falls. This event was focused on families with preschool aged children, as the local school district already offered a computer refurbishing program for students K-12. The final event was held at Fairmont elementary school, again focusing on families with school aged children.
