WASHINGTON, September 13, 2010 – Hawaii has won broadband grants worth $35.9 million. The funds largely will be distributed to the University of Hawaii system.

The grant includes $34.4 million to be used to provide access to 380 community anchor institutions, 400,000 households and 99,000 businesses.

Another $1.9 million will be used to set up 700 new workstations at 60 facilities across the state.

“These investments will improve broadband service and access in Hawaii, where too many residents and community institutions currently rely on slow Internet access due in part to the state’s topography,” said Commerce Department’s Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and National Telecommunications and Information Administration chief Larry Strickling.
