CoSN Survey Reveals that 99 Percent of K-12 Districts Need
Increased Bandwidth

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) today released key preliminary findings from a national survey of nearly 450 K-12 district technology leaders from 44 states on E-Rate and broadband.

The survey found that 99 percent of districts need greater Internet bandwidth and connectivity within the next 36 months, and more than nine in 10 districts think the current E-Rate program inadequately meets their district's needs.

Today's announcement also coincides with the deadline for initial comments on the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to modernize E-Rate. The FCC will issue reply comments on October 16.
