Verizon is planning to provide enhanced connectivity for 80 Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools operated by Native American tribes on 64 tribal reservations in 13 states.
Verizon expects its investment to provide reliable, high-speed internet service and connected devices for thousands of students. The work is designed to complement BIE’s mission to provide quality education opportunities from early childhood through life in accordance with a tribe’s needs for cultural and economic well-being.
The carrier had previously upgraded more than 100 sites from legacy “T1.5s to 100MB” sites, according to a press release. The work was awarded via the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Networx contract.
The plans announced today are expected to provide access to 1 Gbps internet connections through an extension of Verizon’s existing Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) task order.
