FCC proposes $3.9 billion for school technology program

from The Journal

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has proposed a massive increase to the total funds it makes available to schools and libraries for supporting technology. In a proposal announced today, Wheeler called for a permanent $1.5 billion increase in the cap for E-rate, up from the current $2.4 billion, that would be used to pay for technology in schools. E-rate is the FCC program administered by the Universal Service Administrative Co. that supports schools and libraries with subsidies for networking and telecommunications equipment and services — including broadband Internet access and internal WiFi connections — as well as maintenance. The funds can subsidize as much as 90 percent of the cost of equipment and services. more
