The digital divide and the homework gap have long been issues, and COVID-19 has highlighted these old inequities and strained inequitable systems to their breaking points. SCS has worked with Meta Mesh WIreless Communities and other community partners to provide a structural solution to the inequitable wireless access in historically underserved communities: wireless internet service providers (WISPs). The team co-designs community-based WISPs and the longer-term cost-coverage models that will sustain them.
