Meraki and One Economy Partnership Targets Broadband for Low-Income Families

Meraki, a supplier of Wi-Fi networking solutions, has formed a partnership with One Economy, a global nonprofit organization, to deliver affordable broadband Wi-Fi to more than 100,000 low-income housing families in the United States and around the globe over the next two years.

As part of a multi-year agreement, One Economy will deploy Meraki solutions to low-income communities in every location it provides services, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and eventually throughout the globe. Residents of these housing developments will gain Wi-Fi access using Meraki's technology.

One Economy has already used Meraki's Wi-Fi networking solutions to bring free and low-cost broadband to more than 15,000 low-income people across the United States.
