“Connect a School, Connect a Community”


...is the title of the International Telecommunication Union initiative to "to promote broadband Internet connectivity for schools in developing countries around the world". More info in this press release, issued on the back of the ITU's World Telecommunication Development Conference, at which FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski delivered this address.

As well as the parallels with the US National Broadband Plan drawn by Genachowski in his address, some interesting food for thought in relation to using existing education broadband infrastructure to deliver both universal service and next generation access commitments.
