“On the road, our internet connection is sometimes problematic for our fleet of laptops. UNI is a great alternative to overcome this technical issue in the context of some of our projects. Our organization is very pleased with the customer service and technical assistance received.“

How Can UNI Bridge the Divide?
ACCESS TO EDUCATION
This portable hotspot provides wireless access to pre-loaded digital resources by leveraging existing open-access educational resources such as Wikipedia and Khan Academy.
UNI provides a connectivity bridge that allows populations who do not have access to the Internet to access valuable resources for the purpose of teaching, learning and researching.
UNI works with devices that the local populations are already using, such as inexpensive Android phones and old model laptops with wi-fi compatibility, making it a feasible solution.
