Free Wi-Fi for online learning during COVID-19
from THE Journal
While EducationSuperHighway recently reported that the classroom connectivity gap was "now closed," with 99 percent of schools on fiber, that didn't take into account that school would move home in a time of coronavirus. The latest reporting by the Federal Communications Commission, found that the number of people lacking a connection of at least 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload was 21.3 million in the United States at the end of 2017. Some 4.3 million were in rural America or tribal lands. According to Common Sense Media, that translated to almost 12 million children nationwide in homes without a broadband connection.
