Wireless carrier T-Mobile has this week pledged to spend $10.7 billion in a bid to close what it calls “the homework gap.” The company calls it Project 10Million.

As T-Mobile CEO Mike Seivert explains in the video below, over nine million students in the US don’t have reliable access to the internet at home. Project 10Million aims to change that by offering eligible households free access to wireless hotspots combined with up to 100GB of high-speed data every year for five years. Tablets and laptops will also be offered with “at-cost” prices up to a maximum of $500 per student household annually.

Eligibility for the project is based on school or school district students enrolled in the National School Lunch Program and is for students grades K-12. School administrators can fill out a program request form to apply and will be contacted by a T-Mobile education expert in return. The distribution of wireless hotspots and devices will be handled by the schools, so there’s no direct contact between T-Mobile and students. Parents/guardians are also being encouraged by the company to contact their child’s school to make sure they are aware of the program and take the time to sign-up.

If you’re wondering which devices T-Mobile intends to provide at-cost to students, there will be a choice between the Coolpad Tasker tablet, Samsung Chromebook 4, Lenovo 100e Chromebook, and the Lenovo 100e Windows PC.
