 Shares Major Announcement

at NEBSA 2017 Conference!


Patty Tikkala


At NEBSA's 2017 Annual Conference, Ms. Tikkala announced that during the next several weeks, devices issued as part of EBS lease arrangements will automatically be upgraded to a 30 GB monthly plan.  Previously, devices were operating on a 15 GB monthly plan.

This announcement allows for a significant expansion of data as requested by EBS  licensees.  The upgrade will be done as a software change by Sprint and will not require additional action by licensees.  NEBSA membership reacted positively to the announcement.

EBS licensees and educational organizations they represent provides far reaching educational benefits to diverse audiences.  Increasing the data capacity allows for expansion of educational and technology services provided to communities throughout the country.
