Apple, Microsoft, Verizon and other technology companies have teamed up with the Obama administration to make a “down payment” on an effort to ensure virtually all American children have broadband Internet access, President Obama said on Tuesday.
During his State of the Union address, the president lauded the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) progress on its school broadband initiative, known as the E-Rate program.
