The City Council allocated $2 million in COVID CDBG funding to expand the Tech2Go mobile hotspot program run by the Los Angeles Public Library. As part of my continued effort to invest in our communities, I introduced a motion to expand this program which will help provide internet access to families and households that lack these services. This funding will allow the LA Public Library to purchase and maintain an additional 1,400 wireless internet hotspots that will be circulated citywide. The mobile hotspots are easy to use and allow users to connect their laptop, tablet, and other Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the internet.
