FCC Votes to Move Ahead with High-Speed Internet for Schools

The FCC has voted to move forward with plans to have high-speed internet access to 99% of the entire nation’s schools within five years. This will be a continuance of the 1997 plan to provide internet access to school libraries, but with emphasis on modernizing and expanding its efforts.

The initiative intends to bring high-speed internet connections into 99 percent of US schools within the next five years.
