Support state, municipal, and school district efforts to bring robust broadband to schools

The National Broadband Plan should support state, municipal, and school district efforts to bring robust broadband to schools.

 

One of the world's largest installations of wireless local area networks in production today has been constructed by the School District of Philadelphia, the eighth largest school district in the United States. It now provides wireless Internet access at every school in the district. As FCC Commissioner Michael Copps has suggested, the federal government should facilitate the expansion of these broadband networks beyond the schools to the nearby communities, as was done in Livermore Valley, California.
