As connectivity needs among Alaska schools are increasing, rural and non-rural districts alike are in a position to capitalize on countless opportunities provided by increased bandwidth. While the possibilities are great, Alaskan educators need funding for greater bandwidth to serve the students of the state's largely rural educational system.
