In an effort to close the homework gap, many educators and policy makers are looking to the Educational Broadband Service, or EBS.
Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu are more popular than ever. In fact, a new survey shows that for the first time, more U.S. households subscribe to these three paid streaming services than traditional pay television.
Opportunities would arise from putting frequencies in the 2.5 GHz Educational Broadband Service spectrum band into an incentive auction. Not only could the government’s share of the proceeds be put toward closing the Homework Gap, but underutilized mid-band spectrum could fuel the deployment of 5G.
