K-12 E-rate Fiber Service Provider

Sherpa Fiber builds Networks for the Next Generation. We offer leased lit and leased dark fiber wide area networks (WANs) to K-12 school districts across the country, and all of our networks are E-rate Category 1 eligible. Unlike traditional fiber network providers, we deliver multiple strands of dedicated fiber to districts 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 private fiber networks and how your new wide area network will be the envy of peer districts.
