Get Connected

Saint Paul residents without reliable internet or devices can borrow Chromebooks and hotspots.

Through grant funding from the ECF (Emergency Connectivity Fund), SPPL will be renewing hotspots distributed by Digital Navigators, Community Specialists, and SPPL staff between 2021 and 2022, in addition to distributing new hotspots and internet-enabled Chromebooks.

All devices have been distributed and the application list is now closed.

You may be able to borrow a hotspot through the Borrow the Internet service (Saint Paul residents can check out a wireless hotspot for free, high-speed internet service).
