M&A Technology helps bring broadband access to students in Castleberry ISD
Castleberry ISD was actively searching for ways to provide greater internet access beyond the classroom to students at home. After discovering their costly hotspot initiative had gaps in connectivity and students at home still had limited access, they began conversations with M&A Technology in search of a better, more affordable solution.
In partnership with M&A, Castleberry ISD’s technology committee made the decision to raise their own cell towers to broadcast consistent, safe, and filtered internet to nearly all of their students. There were massive cost savings with this new initiative, while also giving students a greater ability to learn while at home.
