District Provided Home Internet Not Enough? 

Is the mobile hotspot unit, sometimes called a MiFi unit, provided to you by union Public Schools not allowing you to complete your class assignments, zoom sessions, and watch all the required videos without running out of bandwidth?  Each unit is given 2GB of high speed data per month, which is about 4 hours of zoom meetings.  If you are experiencing this issue,  here are a few options to consider: 

  1. Limit non-school related work. Make sure you are using the hotspot for school work only. Do not use the mobile hotspot for Netflix, Instagram, Hulu or any other application that is not directly related to your school work.
  2. Swap out unit for a new one.  If the mobile hotspot runs out of available bandwidth, you can switch out the mobile hotspot for a different unit.  In order to switch out units, you would need to bring the old unit to the Innovation Lab.  You may only check out one device at a time.
  3. Check out a mobile hotspot unit from the Tulsa City-County Library.  The Tulsa City-county library system has a very limited number of unlimited data MiFi units available for checkout.   Each unit may be checked out for up to 14 days.  After 14 days, the unit must be returned. If there are additional units available at that time, you could check out another unit.
  4. Enroll in an OPTIONAL unlimited data plan.  If you are running out of available data and swapping out units has become a challenge, you could consider enrolling into an optional unlimited data plan. If you chose to enroll in this plan, you will need to prepay $40 to receive a new mobile hotspot unit that will provide unlimited 4G data from September 11 through December 31, 2020. If you chose to enroll in this program for the spring semester, the cost would be $40 for January 20, 2021  through May 20, 2021. Each mobile hotspot could allow up to five (5) devices to connect, but each device would take a portion of the 4G data connection.  The more devices that connect, the slower all connections become.
