@ehBeth,
I assume the router comes with the internet service. Also, a lot of families have access to tablets and smart phones that could be used on the wifi broadband internet.

@tsarstepan,
As the links above discuss, smart phones (and basic tablets) just aren't enough.

Maybe it's different in the US, but routers aren't standard issue here - modems, yes. routers, no.

@engineer,
My daughter also uses the Internet to do homework. The problem is that she also uses the Internet to NOT do homework.

Sometimes I wonder whether whether it is a net plus or not.

@ehBeth,
Don't forget we're in the age of the $149 Raspberry Pi...

and computer sticks which are gum pack sized computers that turns your television into a desktop computer.

The last few days Mr. B has been visiting each school in our area. He's had confirmation from several schools that lower income students are not being reached with this service.

"Elitism" is a word he's heard on more than one occasion.
