EducationSuperHighway has just released its annual report on the state of K-12 broadband connectivity, “2017 State of the States: Fulfilling Our Promise to America’s Students.”
They report that in Wyoming, 100% of school districts representing all of the state’s 92,642 students not only meet the minimum connectivity goal of 100 kbps per student, but beat it by a factor of 2, with every student receiving at least 200 kbps per student. What’s more—Wyoming provides the 200 kbps per student to all districts at absolutely no cost to any district. In 2017, Wyoming leveraged $6.1 million of federal E-rate funds
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead is quoted on the website:
EducationSuperHighway is a nonprofit focused on upgrading the Internet access in every public school classroom in America. They believe that digital learning has the potential to provide all students with equal access to educational opportunity and that every school requires high-speed broadband to make that opportunity a reality.
