Colorado pursues higher standard for school broadband connectivity

Colorado Broadband Office K-12 Connectivity, News

EducationSuperHighway, our partner on the Kids Link Colorado Initiative, has released the 2018 State of the States report, which tracks progress toward the K-12 broadband connectivity goals established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and provides state leaders with the information needed to finish the job of connecting America’s students to high-speed Internet.

The report shows that 98% of Colorado schools meet the FCC’s minimum bandwidth goal of 100 Kilobits per second (Kbps) per student. Our work is far from over, as we set our sights on the new goal of 1 Megabit per second (Mbps) per student in every school.
