How one of the poorest districts in the US pipes Wi-Fi to families – using school buses



So this, I asume totallty cash strapped, local administration decided to spaff a load of dosh on some tablets.

And then found that there was no connetivity.

So spaffed some more on wifi for the buses so the kids can connect on the way to school.

Which would, in a sparsely populated area, give superb continuous wideband coverage ...

After all, there's no one else out there to use all that bandwidth, is there?

Etc, etc.

Do I smell a huge porkfest somewhere?

How many decent books would the spiralling costs of this have provided?

Sorry, but I'm just not convinced.
