Schools in US got one step closer in getting High Speed Internet access from FCC. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which had been working in the interest of boosting US Internet graph has decided on a proposal that will bring high-speed internet connections to almost every school in the nation. It’s an overhaul of the existing E-Rate program from government since 1997 for connecting schools and libraries online. Earlier the program worked on old school hardware viz. paging and phone directory tools, reboot of the program will focus on wireless networking cspsble to cater large userbase.
This is an extension of the recently launched ConnectEd initiative by Prez. Obama which will equip classrooms with modern day interactive technology and high speed internet by 2020.
