What’s left to do

We’ve made dramatic progress, but to deliver on our promise there is more work to be done.
There are still:

  1. 6.5 million students who don’t have affordable Internet access, limiting their ability to adequately prepare for college and careers.
  2. 2,049 schools that don’t have fiber infrastructure, limiting their ability to engage in current and future digital learning opportunities.
  3. 10,000 schools that don’t have sufficient Wi-Fi, limiting teachers’ ability to deliver personalized learning for every student.

While we must continue to expand the bandwidth available to the 39.2 million
students in America’s connected classrooms in order to meet growing demand
from increased technology use, our immediate task is to work through the
challenges the remaining students and schools without sufficient connectivity
are facing.
What follows in this report is an analysis and path forward for addressing each
of these challenges so we can keep our promise to America’s students and close
the K-12 connectivity gap by 2020.

Getting to Zero

Connecting the last 6.5 million students to the FCC’s minimum recommended
bandwidth for digital learning can be accomplished by:

1. Leveraging price transparency to bring affordable bandwidth
to 6 million students.
2. Connecting 100,000 students to service providers that meet
national benchmark prices for Internet access.
3. Empowering fewer than 40 school districts representing
400,000 students to increase their broadband investment
to levels comparable to those of districts that are
sufficiently connected.


In order to meet the minimum bandwidth goal by leveraging price transparency, the average district needs to lower its cost per Mbps by 26%.

In a professional context it often happens that private or corporate clients corder a publication to be made and presented with the actual content still not being ready. Think of a news blog that's filled with content hourly on the day of going live. However, reviewers tend to be distracted by comprehensible content, say, a random text copied from a newspaper or the internet. The are likely to focus on the text, disregarding the layout and its elements.
