New Hotspot Model for Contributor Plus Members

We have a new hotspot model for Contributor Plus members! The Franklin R910 model has been discontinued by our supplier. Contributor Plus members will now receive the Inseego MiFi 8000.

The Inseego MiFi8000 has a number of exciting features, including some that members have been asking about for years. These features include
- Connect up to 15 Wi-Fi enabled devices (compared to a maximum of 10 for previous hotspots we've offered)
- Hardware maximum speeds of 1 Gbps (compared to 150 Mbps for previous hotspots we've offered).
- USB tethering!

If you have technical issues, as always please email our equipment provider Mobile Citizen at careteam@mobilecitizen.

We're improving the CalyxVPN

Here at the Calyx Institute, we don’t believe in letting censors block internet traffic. We’re excited to announce that we’ve received a grant from Internews to help users keep their internet traffic safe by including Pluggable Transports technology into our free CalyxVPN. Help keep your internet traffic safe from censors! Donate to the Calyx Institute so we can keep upgrading the tools we make available for free to everyone on the internet.
