T-Mobile targets schoolwork gap with expanded $10B education initiative

T-Mobile today launched an expanded version of its previously announced Project 10Million initiative, adding options for more data to keep students connected as the school year starts up.

Now officially live, Project 10Million was one of three major promises T-Mobile committed to while it successfully fought for approval to merge with Sprint. The other two pledges included new low-cost prepaid plans and free 5G service for first responders, which have already launched.

As a combined company, T-Mobile pledged $10 billion over five years to deliver internet service to 10 million student households to help close the homework gap. The operator cited the expanded reach and capacity its wireless network thanks to the Sprint integration as a key factor in making reliable connectivity accessible for students.
