LINCOLN, Nebraska – To help provide equitable learning access and opportunities, as well as keep local youth connected during the school year, UScellular has donated 35 wireless hotspots and two years of service to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln/Lancaster County.


Hotspots have proven to be a vital tool for youth to access the Internet, study and complete homework. These will help the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln boost their connectivity on site, while also being loaned out to families to support reliable access at home. This month, UScellular will also visit Boys & Girls Club at Park Middle School to show students how hotspots work and help connect them to Club technology.


The hotspots provided to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln/Lancaster County connect to UScellular’s network to provide high-speed connectivity for Club members throughout the area. Each hotspot has the potential to support multiple Club members throughout any given day.


“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lincoln/Lancaster County provide an essential service for youth in our community, and we want to help ensure their members have the connectivity they need to be successful in school,” UScellular Area Sales Manager Ryan Vaught said. “Wireless technology is key to providing broadband service to families in both urban and rural areas, and we believe that every family deserves access to reliable internet access. At UScellular, we want to do our part to ensure youth in our area have the resources they need to stay connected.”


UScellular has donated $2.6 million in hotspots and wireless service to 33 Boys & Girls Clubs in 2021. Since 2009, UScellular has donated more than $20.8 million along with countless experiences and technology items to nonprofit organizations across the country.
