​Sprint 1 Million Project FAQs


Q: Who is eligible to receive a Sprint hotspot?

​A: Sprint 1Million Project is offered to high school students ages 13-years-old and older who do not have high-speed internet access at home, which is defined as:

  • No home internet access at all
  • Multiple students in the same household, working from a single computer
  • Internet is available at home, but at a very low bandwidth (i.e., dial-up speeds) and is not adequate for completing homework assignments

Q: How can a student join the hotspot project?

​A: Students can complete the required consent form and deliver to the front office or school library for the school's Library Instructional Technology Teacher (LITT). The LITT will then create a new student account, provision the hotspot, and deliver the device to the student to be stored and used at home.

Q: Can each high school student have his/her own hotspot for households with mutiple students?

​A: Yes. High school students in the same home may each be assigned a hotspot to individually benefit from a monthly high-speed data plan.

​Q: What is available for Beaverton School District middle school students?

​A: Beaverton School District is investigating an option for Middle School students. An alternative is discounted internet through programs such as Internet Essentials.

​Q: Does the hotspot have an internet filter?

​A: Yes. Sprint provides a free Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) compliant content filter with every hotspot. This filter blocks adult content and malware via the hotspot. It also blocks the same content for any computing device while on the Sprint network. The filter uses the Symantec Rulespace engine which is industry best-in-class and has been employed worldwide to over 700 million customers.

Q: Does the hotspot turn off after the monthly data plan is used?

​A: No. The hotspot will continue to work at slower speeds (2G) after the student uses the 3GB of high-speed LTE data in a month.

Q: Does the student keep the hotspot over the summer?

​A: Yes. The hotspot remains in the student's possession continuously until the student graduates or completes four years of school at Beaverton School District.

Q: What happens to the hotspot if a student transfers schools?

​A: If a student transfers schools and remains in the Beaverton School District, the hotspot will stay with them. If a student leaves the school district, we'll ask that the hotspot be returned to the LITT at your school. If the device is not returned, the student's account may be encumbered with a replacement fee (the current cost of a 1Million Project hotspot).

Q: What happens if the hotspot is damaged?

​A: A damaged hotspot will be replaced only once, after the damaged device is brought to the LITT.

Q: What happens if the hotspot is stolen?

​A: A stolen hotspot will be replaced only once, after a police report is made and presented to the LITT. The LITT can help by providing hotspot identifiers for the report.

Q: What happens if the hotspot is lost?

A: Students can purchase a 1Million Project hotspot through Beaverton School District - sold at a discount to project participants - to use the remaining time on their plan.

Q:​ After graduation, does ​​​the student get to keep the hotspot?

​A: Yes! Consider it a graduation gift. Students with hotspots who graduate from Beaverton School District will get to take the hotspot with them. Sprint intends to offer students their own discounted service plan upon graduation.

​Q:​ Who do I contact for help with my hotspot?

​A. ​If you have any questions about your device or service, please call Sprint at (844) 309-1680.
