The Mobile Beacon Donation Program

Note: Mobile Beacon's service and devices run on Sprint's 4G WiMAX network, which will be discontinued and merged into Sprint's 4G LTE network by the end of November 2015. Mobile Beacon service plans and devices are not compatible with the 4G LTE network, so administrative fees for these products have been reduced. See the product pages for details about how to continue to receive service with Mobile Beacon after the 4G WiMAX service ends.


The Mobile Beacon donation program at TechSoup provides 4G mobile broadband devices to eligible nonprofits, charities, schools, and libraries.

Available 4G devices include modems, portable USB modems, and mobile hotspots for connecting to the Internet from the office or while traveling.

You can use these 4G devices to connect compatible computers or WiFi-enabled consumer electronics like smartphones and tablets to the Internet from any location within the 4G coverage area. The 4G devices must be used with a subscription to Mobile Beacon's 4G WiMAX mobile broadband service for nonprofits.
