A cooperative effort to bridge the digital divide with low-cost WiFi


A new community-owned internet cooperative is helping to bridge the digital divide for underserved New Yorkers by providing low cost wifi systems. The People’s Choice cooperative has five hubs in the Bronx and may expand to more New York housing complexes soon. Laura Fong reports as part of our ongoing series, “Chasing The Dream: Poverty & Opportunity in America.”
