Berkeley County Schools Count on the Speed and Dependability of Frontier’s Commercial Ethernet

Berkeley County is located in the Eastern Panhandle of W. Va., about 65 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. The county has a population of approximately 1,100,000 and continues to grow as a bedroom community for commuters who work in the Washington/Baltimore metro area. Berkeley County Schools serve a student population of over 18,600 with four high schools, six middle schools, six intermediate schools and 16 elementary schools. Their mission is to “provide educational excellence for all.”

Berkeley County Schools put out a request for proposal (RFP) in 2013 for Commercial Ethernet and other communications services. David Kenney, Director of Research & Technology, notes, “We published this RFP for two reasons: The Federal Trade Commission’s E-rate program requires us to get competitive bids to qualify for funding, and out state also requires us to get bids for projects over a certain dollar amount.”
