WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — 100 students around the Cape Fear will have mobile access to internet thanks to a recent grant given to YWCA Lower Cape Fear.

Each hotspot has a 2-year Education Only Hotspot Plan from UScellular.

Hotspots are stand-alone Wi-Fi networks that can connect several devices at once wirelessly and have been proven to be a vital tool for youth to access the internet, study and complete homework.

YWCA says they will distribute hotspots to their afterschool students and then open the rest to the community through a lottery.
