Lit and Dark Fiber for K-12 Districts
Velocity Fiber provides dedicated strands of lit and dark fiber for school districts, and our Wide Area Network (WAN) solutions are designed to help districts grow minds rather than network costs. Our goal is to be the most cost-effective network solution over the long term, while providing districts with the robust fiber infrastructure necessary to unlock digital learning and prepare the next generation for college and careers in a globally connected world.
According to the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), the top drivers for bandwidth growth are more students with devices (and more devices per student), digital content, online assessments and streaming content. Whether your district’s bandwidth demands align with CoSN’s findings or you are seeing more bandwidth demand from embedded formative assessments, maker spaces or game based learning models, with Velocity Fiber, your district will have the fiber infrastructure in place to provide students with a world class education.
In addition, Velocity Fiber’s WANs are specifically designed for K-12 districts to leverage the Second E-rate Modernization Order of 2014 including pricing options with and without Special Construction, and we work with K-12 school districts that have access to and plan to utilize state matching funds.
As a result, with our lit or dark fiber networks, districts are able to cost effectively meet or exceed the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA)’s recommendation of at least 10 Gbps per 1000 users for WAN access, and thanks to our progressive WAN bandwidth upgrade options, districts can rest easy knowing they have a pathway to increase network speeds without ever increasing monthly recurring costs.
