E-RATE for Schools

E-RATE for Schools.  StarMax is a certified E-Rate Service Provider. As an E-Rate Service Provider we provide low-cost broadband Internet to local schools and libraries. E-Rate is the commonly used name for the Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The program provides discounts to assist schools and libraries in the United States to obtain affordable telecommunications and Internet access. It is one of four support programs funded through a Universal Service fee charged to companies that provide interstate and/or international telecommunications services.


We are experienced in partnering with our clients to take advantage of this great resource to provide Internet access to all students. With very few exceptions, E-Rate is available to all K-12 schools. StarMax is a great local alternative to the large telecom carriers in taking advantage of this national program. In addition to Internet Broadband discounts, this program also funds the installation of wireless networks to cover the entire school premises. StarMax also partners with schools to install and manage wireless networks to ensure Internet access is available throughout the entire school.
