Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., wants to revise and expand the federal government's E-Rate program, which helps fund Internet connections for public libraries and schools. The chairman of the Senate commerce committee proposes to upgrade the Internet connections of every U.S. school to 1 gigabit per second. "As every educator knows, digital information and technology will continue to play an increasing role in education, so we need to think about how we are going to meet the broadband infrastructure needs of our schools and libraries," Rockefeller said.
