    High-speed broadband is key to restoring our educational standing. Our schools now rank 27th in math, 17th in reading, 20th in science, and 16th in technological readiness compared to other developed nations. We must leverage technology to transform education.

    Since our founding in 2012, we have been singularly focused on upgrading the Internet infrastructure in K–12 public schools so that all students can take advantage of the transformational power of digital learning. We use a data-driven approach to address the barriers that keep school districts from getting the speed they need. We catalyze federal and state action on K-12 broadband initiatives, we get fiber to schools that need it, and we make broadband more affordable for school districts. As a non-profit, our tools and services are offered free of charge. Our work helped shape President Obama’s ConnectED initiative and served as a catalyst for modernization of the Federal Communications Commission’s $3.9 billion E-rate program, earning our CEO the 2015 Visionary of the Year award from the San Francisco Chronicle. Through our federal advocacy work as well as our district and state programs, we are enabling high-speed Internet access in every K–12 classroom in America.

    The release of our State of the States report, a national analysis of internet connectivity in every states' public schools, convinced 39 State Governors to take action. They have publicly acknowledged this problem and are committed to closing the digital divide in their states. We currently work with over twenty states across the US.
