UH to get $36 million to provide high-speed Internet access to schools

The University of Hawaii will receive $36 million to provide high-speed Internet access to public colleges and schools around the state.

Once installed, schools and libraries will be able to access the Internet at speeds of 1 gigabit per second. Connections at UH campuses will reach 10 gigabits a second.

The federal money also will purchase nearly 700 computers for public use in 66 locations throughout the state.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii announced the grants last week via a video message at a higher education summit in Honolulu.

The summit featured a speech by Undersecretary Martha Kanter of the U.S. Department of Education.
