wifi

A national nonprofit is partnering with Indiana to improve high-speed internet access for schools across Indiana during the next two years.

The focus will be on 30 schools that lack high-speed fiber connections. There will also be assistance for school districts to apply for federal grants to improve broadband infrastructure or increase classroom Wi-Fi access.

The organization EducationSuperHighway, a San Francisco-based nonprofit working to bring internet access to U.S. classrooms, will also help local schools negotiate lower rates with internet providers.

Purdue Air Link wireless internet is now available off-campus. The network has been expanded to areas of Lafayette and West Lafayette that already carry city wifi. People who have Purdue accounts can log on to PAL in places like Tapawingo Park, the West Lafayette Farmer’s Market, Lafayette’s Main Street, and the county courthouse square. 

Purdue Chief Information Officer Gerry McCartney says he hopes the expansion, which piggybacks on Lafayette and West Lafayette infrastructure, will get more students to explore the community.
