Pittsburgh program bringing broadband to district’s families

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Pittsburgh Public Schools will run a pilot project intended to get more students online at high speed. Beginning in December, the district wil provide deeply discounted broadband access to the homes of more than 500 students. It will also offer training sessions. Officials hope the school board will approve the pilot program and that they will eventually use federal funding to make the access available to more than 10,000 families by next fall.
