Our Commitment and Progress

When we started COCONET-US, LLC, the back in 2005, the urgency of the connectivity gap was undeniable. Every year, millions of high schools seniors were graduating, and every year, too many lacked the digital learning opportunities they needed to succeed in their future.

Then, in 2013, our nation made an important promise to close that connectivity gap and level the playing field for  children throughout  the United States. The promise was that public and some qualified private schools students, regardless of their location, age, or socioeconomic background, would have high-speed broadband access in their calassrooms within five years.

 

The Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) 2014 E-rate modernization was the catalyst that gave way to a massive broadband expansion throughout America's  public and private education systems. Across party lines and geographic boundaries, governors, state and district leaders, schools and service providers have thoroughly leveraged E-rate's  resources to make the promise of nationwide connectivity a tangible reality.  We'we made huge progress in connecting public and private schoolss across the USA - to a point that we are almost there.
But there are still 6.5 million students that need our help.

Success is within reach. Let's make the final run towards digital equality in every school, for every child.

There’s no one type of leadership or direction that works better than others. Some successful CEOs are aggressive; others are passive. Some are perfectionistic and demanding; others prefer to delegate and trust others to get the job done.

This means that there’s no blueprint for what makes a “good” CEO, in contrast to an idea, which can be measured based on its projected income, market demand and other factors.
