$9M to fund 20 wireless broadband pilot progams

The Houston Chronicle reports that the Federal Communications Commission will announce “20 pilot projects that will receive government funding to pay for wireless broadband connections for laptops, smart phones and other mobile devices, which students will be able to take with them after the school day ends.” The funding for these programs will equal $9M from the E-Rate program.

“The money will go to projects in Colorado, Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, California, New Mexico and Iowa.”
