Activate Digital Learning
The FCC’s E-Rate Program allows for eligible schools and libraries with funding from the Universal Service Fund to enhance digital learning and stay connected with telecommunications and information services affordably.
This program holds two categories for E-Rate funding. Category 1 Services include Broadband and Internet Access, whereas Category 2 Services cover internal networking infrastructure.
Cambium Networks provides internet connectivity solutions to schools and libraries that are eligible for either funding category.
Latest E-Rate Updates
E-Rate Funding Year 2023 represents the third year of the program since the FCC’s Report & Order announced in 2019 made significant updates to the program that became effective starting in 2021. E-Rate follows a 5-year budget cycle and here are some of the highlights in effect from that order:
- All Category 2 budgets are renewed for funding starting year 2021
- Category 2 budgets are fixed for 5 year periods
- Budgets are based on the entire school district enrollment instead of a per school basis
- The minimum funding floor is $25,000
- The budget allocation per student is $167 for schools and $4.50 per square feet for libraries
