Informational Brief


CyberReef is offering FREE CIPA Filtering for 6 months to students affected by coronavirus school closures. Details on free CIPA filtering.

Pew Research findings indicate 17% of US Teens cannot complete their homework due to Internet availability. Additionally, 94% of high income families ($100,000+ per year) have high-speed Internet access in their homes compared to only 53% of families making less than $30,000 a year.

Kids Internet Defense Shield helps to close this disparity in the digital divide. To close this gap, progressive schools and libraries are providing low income students with mobile hotspots and WiFi on school buses, thus allowing students to have Internet access on their rides to and from school, decreasing the gap in student performance in primary and secondary education.

Internet Access at Homes and on Buses

CyberReef is committed to helping close this digital divide through its Kids Internet Defense Shield offering. CyberReef is working in conjunction with major mobile operators in the United States to provide broadband at home and on school buses.

Through its use of Children’s Information Protection Act (CIPA) filtering, Kids Internet Defense Shield protects students surfing the Internet at home and on their bus rides. We provide schools a portal to modify filtering to allow access to age appropriate websites, and to deny access to age inappropriate websites.

Kids Internet Defense Shield Controls Costs

CyberReef allows schools and libraries control how much data individual students are allowed to use. Daily, weekly, or monthly limits can be set. Through the use of data throttling, we can set limits to reduce the potential of expensive mobile data overages. Unlike our competitors, if you like your current mobile carrier, you can continue to use them. This flexibility allows you to continue to optimize data pooling across the entire school district, thereby reducing overall data spend. With CyberReef, there is no additional hardware to purchase for CIPA filtering to take effect.



On average, students are in buses 90-180 minutes per day. Using this time for online homework while lessons are still fresh can increase learning and retention. Engaged students increase bus safety by decreasing bus driver distractions.


Providing 1:1 programs, keeping students mobile, CIPA safe, and engaged is key for online learning. Extend the protection of your in-school internet policies and make this a true fixed cost deployment.


Create the best experience for your mobile hotspot lending program while helping to address the 30% of US homes without broadband internet.
