University-led Broadband Expansion

University-led Broadband Expansion is a project from the University of Hawaii.

University IT Innovation of the Year

The University of Hawaii will play a central role in the state of Hawaii’s broadband expansion plans. The University of Hawaii leads the Apakau ka la project, translated as “the spreading of the sun’s rays” — more than $400 million in federal grants and matching funds to boost state connectivity. University of Hawaii President David Lassner said the university has led broadband expansion in the state for decades and is “proud to be the only institution of higher education to lead these vital next steps of developing the broadband infrastructure so critical today to work, education, healthcare and economic vitality for our entire state.”
