Press Pass: Million-dollar WiFi project fails to connect for Buffalo students

Apr 28, 2020

It's a failed connection that is happening at the worst time for 5,500 students in the Buffalo school district. Scheduled to have been operational in January, a project called "Connected Communities" could have provided WiFi access to students dealing with the demands of distance learning as schools remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The $1.3 million plan is far behind schedule and, as Geoff Kelly of Investigative Post reports, the company charged with installing the system is also facing other troubles.
