In fact, NJCTA member companies have wired more than 5,000 schools and libraries around the state.
In addition, New Jersey cable companies have developed programs designed to meet the needs of New Jersey communities and families.
Cable in the Classroom is a cable industry project that provides free cable and broadband connections to schools and libraries, and access to more than 500 hours of educational television and online resources from cable networks.
