E-Rate Program for Schools and Libraries
As part of the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, E-Rate subsidizes the cost of Telecommunications Services, Internet Access and Internal Connections. The Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, commonly know as "E-Rate," is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Co (USAC) under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and provides discounts to assist most schools and libraries in the United States to obtain affordable telecommunications and Internet access. The Federal E-Rate program allows eligible schools and libraries to receive funding of 20-90% on most telecommunications services.
Frontier wishes to encourage our education customers to apply for all possible discounts. There are several steps required and applications must be submitted each year.
Any entity wishing to participate in the E-rate program should consult the Schools and Libraries Division (SLD) web site for information about the process, its governing rules, and the latest updates to the E-Rate program.
