In a special presentation at the National Collaborative for Digital Equity's 2nd Annual Invitational Summit, the SHLB Coalition and Dr. Raul Katz will release the results of a study demonstrating the economic benefits of awarding wireless Educational Broadband Service (EBS) licenses to Tribal Nations and educational institutions. 

Depending on how the FCC rules on the open “Transforming the 2.5 GHz Band” proceeding, EBS could address the homework gap by allowing educational institutions to provide low-cost wireless broadband service to students in rural markets across the country. 

Speakers include: 

  • Robert McLaughlin, executive director, National Collaborative for Digital Equity
  • John Windhausen Jr., executive director, SHLB Coalition
  • Dr. Raul Katz, principal, Telecom Advisory Services
