What primary inconsistencies did EducationSuperHighway find in the data and why do those inconsistencies exist?

EducationSuperHighway discovered the greatest inconsistencies in “Purpose” (how the service is used), “Connection Type” (the type of connection for the service) and “Bandwidth” (the download speed of the requested service). Additionally, applicants sometimes did not correctly allocate the service to the recipients of the service.  The reason these questions were misinterpreted is mostly related to technical terminology used in the E-rate application that is not broadly agreed upon, varying levels of technical understanding between applicants, and human error. While there were other inconsistencies found, these were the primary issues.
