Announced in 2016, the 1Million Project aims to provide free wireless service and a device – be it a smartphone, tablet, laptop or hotspot – to one million US high school students over the next five years. As an operator, Sprint took it upon itself to supply the connectivity piece of the puzzle, but Michelman said the project relies on device donations from outside partners.
