Wireless Networks Reach Half of College Classrooms

“Wireless networks now reach fully half (51.2 percent) of college classrooms compared to just over two-fifths (42.7 percent) in 2005 and a third (31.1 percent) in 2004, according to new data from the annual Campus Computing Survey. Additionally, more than two-thirds (68.8 percent) of campuses participating in the annual survey have a strategic plan for deploying wireless as of fall 2006, up from 64.0 percent in 2005 and 53.3 percent in 2004. By sector, the proportion of classrooms with wireless access ranges from a third (31.7 percent) in community colleges (up from 26.8 in 2005) to almost two-fifths (58.0 percent) in private research universities (compared to 52.8 percent in 2005 and 47.4 percent in 2004).” (The Campus Computing Project – 10/06) – link via Wireless Libraries)
