In rural areas, many education institutions lack the data, voice, and network infrastructure to stay competitive in our global economy. Without the appropriate technical solutions, they will lose the ability to keep pace with demands for educational services. The federal government has set up funded programs to help improve and expand Internet access for K-12 education.
Whether you are K-12 or a Higher Education institution, FairPoint offers a portfolio of technology solutions to help.
The Internet is expanding the scope of our children’s classrooms far beyond their walls. That’s why FairPoint provides flexible, scalable Internet bandwidth to meet the increasingly technology-oriented learning environment and newly mandated online testing requirements that face today’s K-12 institutions.
The ConnectEd initiative calls for a minimum Internet speed of 100 Mbps for schools, but many K-12 schools located in rural areas have limited budgets. The Federal government has stepped in with funded programs, such as E-Rate, that provides reimbursement for a portion of the expenses related to the delivery of network connectivity.Learn More

While the technology provides great opportunity, it can also drive network costs higher and put pressure on service levels. FairPoint provides cost-effective solutions that deliver fast speeds and high availability.Learn More
