Altice USA announces today that its Lightpath division has connected an additional 47 New Jersey schools and school districts to its fiber network for high-speed broadband services. 

In 2015, DRLAP selected what is now called the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey (ESCNJ) to administer a purchasing cooperative that would make it simpler and more cost-effective for K-12 schools in New Jersey to buy broadband services. 

Altice USA’s Lightpath provides products and services that help participating schools make connectivity more ubiquitous, expand online curriculums, support distance learning, increase parental involvement and connect facilities. Most recently, Lightpath has worked with customers to upgrade and prepare networks for Google-based learning and application development, robotics classes and education, TV production, security camera initiatives, school gamification learning and PARCC standardized testing.
