  1. We will send you a small device that creates a local area network, a hotspot. People can connect to your Wikipedia hotspot (like they connect to any wifi) and access all of the content on Wikipedia and a selected amount of other educational material, without actually being online. This is very valuable and useful if the cost of Internet is high in your area or if you are in an area with poor Internet connectivity.
