SETDA Strongly Opposes Chairman Pai’s EBS Report and Order

US Capitol BuildingSETDA strongly opposes Chairman Pai’s draft Educational Broadband Service Report & Order, which proposes to further marginalize rural students that lack access to high capacity broadband.

SETDA Executive Director, Candice Dodson said, “the Chairman’s proposal cites dated uses of EBS licenses and the FCC’s two-decade failure to grant new licenses as the basis for handing the spectrum to private providers that have repeatedly failed to address rural America’s homework gap.” She added, “there is no sound reason to deprive state education agencies and school districts at least one opportunity to use new EBS licenses to promote broadband innovation, including through public-private partnerships.”
