You’re trying to attract students to your educational institution; that’s the name of the game. Ideally, you want high-quality students coming to your school and paying the tuition. Today’s students are using, on average, two, three or maybe even more mobile devices when you take into consideration their cell phones, tablets and gaming devices.
If the students are not able to use them, they’re not going to be very happy. If they are not very happy, mom and dad won’t be happy paying the tuition bill.
However, internet connectivity is only one aspect of the student experience. Another key point is the student's safety. Parents want the peace of mind to know that their children, whether they’re in a library, a dormitory, a classroom or even just walking on campus will be safe and able to reach emergency services no matter where they are.
Additionally, web-based applications are being used more frequently for course instruction in both public schools and private schools. Teachers need access to these applications, so good cellular coverage is critical to enable the teachers to do their jobs.
