One of Voqal’s key projects is Mobile Citizen. Mobile Citizen aims to bridge the digital divide by offering free and low-cost internet to educational institutions, nonprofits and social welfare agencies. For example, programs like:
- Ashbury Senior Community Computer Center, which works to bridge the digital divide in Cleveland’s inner-city communities by addressing the technology needs of mature and older adults with limited income via technology literacy training and access to technology.
- PCs for People in St. Paul, MN that provides low-cost computers, computer repair, internet and support to families with an average income of $12,000 per year.
Mobile Citizen’s internet service is available nationwide. Mobile Citizen was created via a unique, 30-year partnership with CLEAR — now a part of Sprint.

We created Independent Spectrum as an ally for EBS spectrum holders, representing their interest by facilitating opportunities to maximize the potential of their licenses.
Through arrangements with commercial wireless carrier Sprint, Independent Spectrum passes through to other EBS licensees significant financial and educational benefits, including working directly with schools to license free broadband Internet access. From small, rural communities like Alto, TX to larger, commercially-built markets like Minneapolis, MN, Independent Spectrum assists licensees of all sizes and technological sophistication to maximize benefits from their EBS spectrum.
