K-12 E-rate Fiber Service Provider

Velocity Fiber builds Networks for the Next Generation. We offer managed leased lit and leased dark fiber wide area networks (WANs) to K-12 school districts across most lower 48 states, and all of our networks are E-rate Category 1 eligible. Unlike traditional fiber network providers, we deliver multiple strands of dedicated fiber between your district’s edge sites and district designated hub site for maximum performance, uptime and control by your district’s IT team. We put you in complete control of your WAN and the traffic that rides across it, and our WAN solutions are designed from the ground up and future-proofed for K-12 districts. Best of all, Velocity Fiber WANs are designed to scale incredibly cost-effectively as bandwidth demands increase. Contact us today to learn more about our fiber networks and how your new WAN will be the envy of peer districts.

The high one-time and recurring costs of constructing and maintaining telecommunication infrastructure has long been a barrier to K-12 school districts seeking access to affordable, high-speed broadband — particularly for small and medium school districts. For many districts, utilizing E-rate discounts for special construction has allowed them to build a high-speed Wide Area Network (WAN) that is both affordable and scalable for their future bandwidth demands.

Join this edWebinar as we discuss all things fiber and the E-rate program: the highs, the lows, the ups, and the downs. Our expert panel spans the gamut of experience with successful E-Rate Fiber Special Construction applications and boots on the ground implementation of fiber WANs. Prepare yourself for a lively chat with relevant and timely insight on the special construction process from contract to connection!
