The Final Mile Project

Welcome! The mission of The Final Mile Project is to deliver dependable internet to every student in Arizona.

Almost a century ago, the US Supreme Court acted in response to the obstacles to educational opportunities created by segregation. The 1954 Brown vs. The Board of Education decision stated, “[Education] is the very foundation of good citizenship. Today it is a principal instrument in awakening the child to cultural values, in preparing him for later professional training, and in helping him to adjust normally to his environment. These days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education. Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms.” 

Today, the same sentiment applies to the importance of providing access to internet connectivity. Please learn more about our project, and work with us to bring broadband to The Final Mile.
