Purdue Innovation Partners Institute Works to Bridge Rural Digital Divide

Purdue Research Foundation’s Innovation Partners Institute (IPI) is joining forces with Wabash College, SBA Communications, Watch Communications, and the State of Indiana to bring wireless broadband connectivity to the Kankakee School Corporation in Jasper County, Indiana by January 2021. The initiative will serve as a model for bringing high-speed internet access to rural areas across the country where one in four residents still lacks access according to the Pew Research Center.
