Helping you enrich 21st-century learning with E-rate services
Dwindling budgets and increasing regulations present a challenge to many schools in acquiring the technologies needed to fuel today’s digital learning environments. The E-rate program is an invaluable resource for K-12 schools and libraries to obtain affordable access to advanced telecommunication services, and Spectrum Enterprise offers a suite of E-rate-eligible services—and local, dedicated education representatives—to help you navigate the program and attain a rich and secure digital infrastructure.
What is the E-rate program?
As part of the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, the E-rate program was created to provide eligible K-12 schools and libraries with discounts of up to 90 percent on select telecommunications services to meet their growing connectivity needs. This federal program is administered by the Schools and Libraries Division (SLD) of the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC).
