Ixchel Hannia Luna Calonico is reflected on her computer screen as the 9-year-old attends school via the internet from her home amid the new coronavirus pandemic in Mexico City.

One of the big issues for students when it comes to distance learning is not having adequate WiFi. A Boise-based tech company, MetaGeek, is offering anyone who’s involved with remote learning free home WiFi help. That means if you’re a teacher or a student, you’ll have free help in making sure your WiFi is stable.

Ryan Woodings is the founder of MetaGeek, and joins Idaho Matters live to talk more about this initiative.<--break->
