Our Mission

Upgrade the Internet access in every public school classroom in America so that every student has the opportunity to take advantage of the promise of digital learning

How We Address This Issue

Inspire State Action

We catalyze action by working with leaders at the federal and state level to effect change. Governors and state leaders have an unprecedented opportunity to bring their schools into the 21st century. New FCC funding for K-12 broadband enables schools to afford faster connectivity and provides state matching incentives. Learn how your state can get students connected.

Close the Fiber Gap

We close the fiber gap by working with states to get high-speed, fiber-optic connections to schools that currently lack access. Fiber is most often the only technology that cost-effectively will deliver the speeds necessary to meet schools’ growing bandwidth needs. Learn how to close the fiber gap in your state.

Make Broadband Affordable

The high cost of broadband prevents many schools from getting the bandwidth they need. We make broadband more affordable for schools by increasing transparency of what school districts and states pay for broadband and Wi-Fi so technology directors can get more bandwidth for a better deal. Learn how price transparency can help increase bandwidth.
