FCC to double spending on broadband in effort to bring 100Mbps to students


Barack Obamas vision of a more technologically advanced United States will get a boost from the FCC this week, which will announce plans to double funding for broadband in schools and libraries from $1 billion to $2 billion per year. Even at $2 billion, however, the FCCs annual spending may prove inadequate — given the number of needy schools in the US — to meet the governments ambitious goal of having a 100Mbps connection in all schools by 2015. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is expected to make the full announcement on Wednesday, while on Tuesday, as per the Post, $500 million of broadband funding from private companies will be announced.
