Lightpath® has announced that over the past year, it has connected more than 65 New Jersey schools to its 100 percent fiber network through its participation in a purchasing cooperative created via the New Jersey Department of Education’s Digital Readiness for Learning and Assessment Project (DRLAP). Lightpath is one of just seven service providers selected by the cooperative to sell broadband services to K-12 schools in New Jersey and has connected more than 40 percent of the schools participating in the program, according to the New Jersey Department of Education. This month, the cooperative named Lightpath the preferred provider for the purchase of hosted phone service.
The purchasing cooperative, which is administered by the Middlesex Regional Educational Services Commission (MRESC) has been active for about one year.
Following its success in deploying high-bandwidth broadband services to schools during the first year of the program, the MRESC, on November 13, recommended Lightpath as the preferred provider of hosted phone service for eligible schools purchasing via the cooperative.
