AT&T Helps Close the Homework Gap

A new era of connected learning in education

The homework gap has existed for decades, but the COVID-19 pandemic has brought national awareness to the problem. AT&T believes that eLearning is not a temporary fix, but an investment in the future of education.

Teachers and students need access to tools, resources and content that inspires, nourishes and transforms. That’s why AT&T has created this special promotion for all qualified public and private schools, from K-12 to universities, coast to coast, county to county, across the United States.

NPPGov encourages its education members to take advantage of this special AT&T offer for education.

Understanding the Promotion

  • Introducing a 12 month option, in addition to 24 months and BYOD (Available for 100+ activations).

From 1/27/21 through 4/27/21 Schools can migrate existing AT&T lines or activate new lines for students or teachers with either of the following combinations of services:

  • A qualified unlimited wireless data plan and Enterprise Traffic Protector service for a combined promotional price of $13/month for 12 months or $12/month for 24 months.

  • A qualified unlimited wireless data plan and AccessMyLAN™ service for a combined promotional price of $18/month for 12 months or $17/month for 24 months.

We understand that student populations change throughout the year so schools that add at least one eligible line before 4/27/21 will also be able to activate additional lines with these services at the same price through 9/30/23. Understanding that for all lines activated under this offer, the promotional pricing ends on 9/30/23.

We value and recognize the commitment and dedication of teachers. They are truly the heart of our schools and during this time, even our homes. Experts in the classroom, educators are now learning to transfer those skills to remote learning and connectivity is a critical priority for their success. That’s why we are providing schools the ability to get lines at no cost for their teachers. Based on the average class size of 1 teacher to 24 students, schools will get one free qualified line for a teacher – with the Special DataConnect for Education plan and either Enterprise Traffic Protector or AccessMyLAN™ – for every 24 lines for students that are migrated to or activated on the qualified services.

In addition, schools have the option to get hotspot devices for teacher and student qualified lines through 9/30/2023, subject to availability:

  • AT&T Moxee mobile hotspot devices at no cost, after credits, with a12 and 24-month Equipment Installment Plan.

Key Highlights:

  • Unlimited Wireless Data – AT&T Special DataConnect for Education plans.

  • Increased Network Management Threshold – After 50GB (Previously 22GB) of data usage, we may temporarily slow data speeds if the network is busy.

  • Content Filtering – Schools have two options, either Enterprise Traffic Protector or AccessMyLAN™.

  • Video Streaming Controls – For content we can identify as video, wireless streaming speed will be limited to Standard Definition quality (About 480p) similar to DVD, yet, interactive conferencing applications and services typically used for eLearning are not impacted by the video streaming controls.

  • Hotspot Options – AT&T Moxee hotspot option available.

  • Ease of Contracting – Single contract & single bill with Enterprise Traffic Protector or AccessMyLAN™

  • Penny Suspend – Schools can also temporarily suspend service for up to 3 months in a 12-month period. During the suspension, the monthly charge for the data plan will be reduced to $.01/month, the service charge for Enterprise Traffic Protector or AccessMyLAN™ will be waived, and associated bill credits will be suspended.

Connectivity: The new pen and paper

AT&T believes in the equality of education—and connection is at our core. Technology is critical for students to thrive and teachers to succeed. Schools need affordable options as well as capabilities to support safety protocols, such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Enterprise Traffic Protector can be used by a School District as part of a plan to filter Internet sites, so that domains classified as inappropriate can be blocked by an acceptable use policy.

Classroom time is about learning. That’s why they’ve included video streaming controls in the data rate plans to help. Interactive conferencing applications and services typically used for eLearning are not impacted by the video streaming controls.

AT&T also values and recognizes the commitment and dedication of teachers. They are truly the heart of our schools and during this time, even our homes. Experts in the classroom, educators are now learning to transfer those skills to remote learning and connectivity is a critical priority for their success.

That’s why they are providing schools the ability to get lines at no cost for their teachers. Based on the average class size of 1 teacher to 24 students, schools will get one free qualified line for a teacher—with the Special DataConnect for Education plan and either Enterprise Traffic Protector or AccessMyLAN—for every 24 lines for students that are migrated to or activated on the qualified services.
