The excerpt below from the Arizona Star Daily sums up the network gridlock situation at the Tucson Unified School Distirct. The reason for posting this on our blog is the hope that other administrators will find us before they go out and commit to the recurring costs of additional expensive bandwidth.

“We are a 21st-century school running on 20th-century bandwidth,” Little said. “I feel like I’m back to what I had in high school, which is pretty much nothing.”
Although we have no other details about the situation in Tucson and their gridlocked Internet service, we are confident that an affordably priced 21st century bandwidth control solution could certainly make a difference.
