Since our founding in 2012, we have been singularly focused on upgrading the Internet infrastructure in K–12 public schools so that all students can take advantage of the transformational power of digital learning. We use a data-driven approach to address the barriers that keep school districts from getting the speed they need. Through our federal advocacy work as well as our district and state programs, we are enabling high-speed Internet access in every K–12 classroom in America. Take a look at our progress so far.
