In the early 2000s, FastTrack constructed a fiber optic ring connecting all the schools within the Bayfield School District. However, the only way Bayfield schools could access the Internet was through four smaller T-1 circuits, which provided only six megabits per second of Internet service for the entire district.
“Our Internet bandwidth increased from 6mb to 100mb while decreasing costs by approximately $400 per month. We can easily and more affordably address future bandwidth needs. Our new capacity improves access across the entire district. This is important as we strive to deliver 21st century skills to our students here in Bayfield.”
