The Effect of Fibre Broadband on Student Learning

Arthur Grimes
2017 Social Science Research Network  
We estimate the impact of ultra-fast broadband on schools' academic performance using a difference-in-difference study of a new fibre broadband network.  ...  We show that fibre broadband increases primary schools' passing rates in standardised assessments by roughly one percentage point.  ...  Thus the overall effect of fibre broadband provision on school performance is ambiguous. We estimate that effect by studying New Zealand's 'Ultra-Fast Broadband Initiative'.  ...
