Internet2 commends the FCC for emphasizing the importance of providing advanced broadband to community anchor institutions, such as universities, schools, libraries, community colleges, healthcare providers, public safety entities, and others, in its National Broadband Plan [pdf]. The FCC plan outlines the goal of providing these institutions with one Gbps connections as well as support for the development of a “Unified Community Anchor Network” (UCAN) that could be built leveraging existing non-profit R&E networks like Internet2 and NLR, and our partner regional networks.
