How we support school districts

We work with school districts big and small; rural, urban, and in-between. If you are a school district leader seeking a better solution for high-speed Internet, we are here to help you get fiber to the schools that need it, ensure your classrooms have robust Wi-Fi, and to make broadband more affordable.

Our mission is for all students across the country to have the bandwidth they need for digital learning. To do that, we empower you with data and resources needed to plan and implement a broadband network upgrade. We offer technical guidance, online education resources, and actionable tools to accelerate your upgrade -- all free of charge

Whether you are in the midst of an upgrade or do not know yet if you need one, this program offers technical and procurement expertise to find sustainable and affordable Internet solutions for your schools. Our process begins with gaining a deep understanding of your technology needs. Next, we engage with the service provider community on your behalf to find you competitive options.
