Idaho high school broadband costs trending upward, but still well below IEN costs

Idaho’s high school broadband costs are trending upward, but the local Internet contracts still represent big savings from the defunct Idaho Education Network, reports Idaho Education News. EdNews gathered preliminary budget requests for school districts for 2015 that showed the savings for local contracts vs. IEN should continue into 2015-16, but with slight cost increases. The news comes as a legislative interim committee prepares to meet on Tuesday to begin delving into the state of broadband service in Idaho schools, the history of the troubled IEN, and future options. EdNews reporter Kevin Richert has a full report here.
