E-Rate has been the topic of many recent news articles and the good news is it’s fully funded and expected to grow. As schools move to the cloud for instructional technology, understanding how E-Rate can help fund those projects becomes increasingly important. Upcoming program changes to E-Rate being considered will prioritize greater internet bandwidth for all schools.
