The Grand Forks Public now has mobile hot spots available for checkout. A mobile hot spot allows you to take internet access (almost) anywhere using the power of cell phone towers. Each of our hot spots are powered by the Sprint Network and will provide 23 GB of high speed data. The loan period for mobile hot spots is three weeks and each will come with a charging cable and instructions for use.
