Connected Nation teams up with eero to bring faster, more reliable internet to underserved homes

Up to 5,000 donated eero mesh wifi devices will be distributed across the US, helping vulnerable families and individuals get the wifi they need 

Washington, DC (April 25, 2024) – Connected Nation (CN) announced today that it is working with three nonprofits across the country to distribute 5,000 eero (an Amazon Company) mesh wifi devices to households, families, and individuals who are in need of faster and more reliable wifi.

eero is teaming up with CN, a national nonprofit with a mission to expand the access, adoption, and use of high-speed internet (broadband) to all people, to launch a community program that will aim to help bridge the Digital Divide.

CN worked with Digitunity to identify three partner organizations that work directly with communities and households who need faster, more reliable wifi devices so they can take full advantage of their internet connections. Human-I-T, E2D, and National Digital Inclusion Alliance will receive and distribute eero devices based on the needs of their communities.

“By donating these devices, eero is taking action to help some of our nation’s most vulnerable communities and households,” said Heather Gate, Executive Vice President, CN. “We are now working together to get eeros into the hands of those who need them the most. eero can help improve wireless connectivity for under-connected individuals and families.”

Reliable wifi has become critical for everyday activities like work, school, and healthcare. eero focuses on constantly innovating to deliver great coverage, fast speeds, and reliable connectivity. By connecting eero mesh wifi to their internet connections, customers can eliminate dead zones and achieve fast, reliable wifi throughout their home
