In order to participate in the 21st century, access to computers and the Internet is necessary. Get Connected Oakland (GCO) is both a campaign and a collaborative effort to provide free or low cost access to these tools to all residents of Oakland. GCO is a citywide, strategic response to the “digital divide”.

Ending the digital divide requires a comprehensive approach.   Oakland has many organizations, public and private,  that provide free access to computers and the Internet  including public and private wifi “hotspots” for those with wireless enabled devices.
