Fauquier County Public Library

Internet to Go

What is the Internet to Go service?

Patrons may check out a Kajeet SmartSpot, a filtered Wi-Fi hotspot that enables you to connect your mobile devices (e.g. laptop, smartphones, tablets, etc.) to the Internet. The Kajeet SmartSpots allow the Library to provide cost-effective educational broadband service to under-served populations. Library patrons can check out a Wi-Fi hotspot to complete homework assignments, apply for jobs or conduct business even in areas not served by hardwired broadband connections.

Where can I borrow the SmartSpot?

The SmartSpots can be borrowed from all three locations.

What SmartSpot is best for me?

The Kajeet SmartSpots run on either the Verizon or T-Mobile cellular network. The mobile hotspot may not work in all areas.

The SmartSpot 900 is on the Verizon 4G network – View the coverage map here.

The SmartSpot T41 uses the T-Mobile 4G network – View the coverage map here.

  • Up to eight (8) devices can connect simultaneously to a SmartSpot — keep in mind that they will all be sharing the same data.
