K-12 E-rate Fiber Service Provider

Sherpa Fiber builds Networks for the Next Generation. We offer managed leased lit and leased dark fiber wide area networks (WANs) to K-12 school districts across most lower 48 states, and all of our networks are E-rate Category 1 eligible. Unlike traditional fiber network providers, we deliver multiple strands of dedicated fiber between your district’s edge sites and district designated hub site for maximum performance, uptime and control by your district’s IT team. We put you in complete control of your WAN and the traffic that rides across it, and our WAN solutions are designed from the ground up and future-proofed for K-12 districts. Best of all, Sherpa Fiber WANs are designed to scale incredibly cost-effectively as bandwidth demands increase. Contact us today to learn more about our fiber networks and how your new WAN will be the envy of peer districts.
