Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa will be the site of a new rural broadband testing site that is being funded by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Agriculture.
The project was announced by US Ignite, the NSF-led technology non-profit group that will administer the field laboratory. The lab will create a “blanket” of experimental broadband coverage, organizers said, across nearly 600 square miles of central Iowa, including six school districts.
