Excerpt: "'We don't think there's an overbuilding problem with E-Rate today,' said John Windhausen, executive director for the Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition. Competitive bids can save millions of dollars per school district, he said. He challenged O'Rielly's statement schools are building excess capacity: 'They're building to meet FCC rules on bandwidth.' Schools' bandwidth needs increase 'every single year,' Windhausen said. 'You don't want to build a new network every single year. You want to build one that will last decades.'"
