The FCC is seeking E-rate related comments on continued use of Commission’s short-term goal of 100 Mbps per 1,000 students and staff, and long-term goal of 1 Gbps per 1,000 students and staff for the upcoming report. These goals will be used to measure the availability of broadband in schools.
The Commission encourages stakeholders to provide comments to inform and help ensure that broadband policies are well-informed and backed by sound data analysis in efforts of closing the digital divide.
Commissioner Rosenworcel released a statement opposing the inquiry.
