The West Virginia Network, which is a branch of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, recently announced it has partnered with URcast to provide access to learning content for K-12 students throughout West Virginia without Internet connections.
URCast is a content distribution application customized for K -12 students, according to the HEPC, and it provides caching services that allow students to view content on computers, tablets or smartphones even without an Internet connection.

Effective January 2015, WVNET has further lowered its price point for Internet access to $9.95 per megabit per month, more than a 50% reduction.

WVNET ACCOMPLISHMENTS -- 2014
WVNET accomplishes a lot in a year. We have multiple teams working on initiatives to improve our services to West Virginia education. Each year, we look through our many tasks and make a list of the most innovative accomplishments. As we conclude another amazing year, here is our list for 2014.
At the October conference, WVNET, Glenville State College, and DAS Advisers partnered with Create West Virginia to demonstrate TV White Space, the old television broadcast spectrum being repurposed to deliver broadband to the most remote places on the planet. This will give a cross section of creatives in business, education, technology, and community design a heads up and potentially, an early crack at accessing and gaining some local control of this evolutionary use of a known resource.
