State Broadband Projects
In partnership with state leadership, we work to accelerate school network upgrades in the most affordable way possible. There are four steps to success at the state level:
Complete a comprehensive assessment of K-12 broadband infrastructure.
Gain a clear understanding of current speeds, costs, and procurement practices
Conduct a service provider and fiber landscape analysis
Inventory service provider options, fiber availability, and any existing state networks
Design affordable network options
Expand access to fiber for all schools, increase competition to lower costs, and aggregate purchasing to avoid waste
Develop an implementation and support plan.
Assist the state in creation of a plan to guide network upgrades at the district level
