FIBER11 is a large-scale, carrier-class network created by the ESC Region 11 Consortium, allowing member districts to access high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity services over a brand new, dedicated, and cost effective fiber network. The Consortium consists of ESC Region 11, school districts, and public/private charter schools in our region. This collaborative effort has given us a competitive price advantage as well as E-Rate and special construction discounts from USAC and the TEA.
