Library Offers Internet Hotspot Program

Nearly 34 million Americans are without any kind of fixed or mobile Internet access, according to the Federal Communications Commission's 2016 Broadband Progress Report. Computer ownership and high-speed internet use in New Mexico lag behind most states in the Southwest, the report shows, indicating that many people are getting left behind.

The Public Library in Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Library recognized an opportunity to reduce those barriers to access by creating a way to "lend out the Internet" via Mobile Hotspots.

A Mobile Hotspot is a device that connects to a computer, smartphone of tablet and generates a wireless Internet, or Wi-Fi, signal. Several devices can then access the Wi-Fi signal.

"As a city we are actively working on bridging the Internet accessibility gap," said Mayor Richard J. Berry. "This is one important step, part of a larger intentional approach to improve connectivity for everyone in the City of Albuquerque."

The Library is working with T-Mobile to provide the Hotspots for check out at each library in the system. A library card is required for checkout of the device; the new program begins Friday, September 30.
