iPad Proliferation, Malware Cause California Districts To Struggle With Bandwidth Capacity


The Palm Springs (CA) Desert Sun (5/16, Kelman) reports that California’s Coachella Valley Unified School District “has handed out so many iPads this year that the schools have begun draining Internet bandwidth from neighboring districts, causing slowdowns and crashes” in numerous area schools. The article notes that the iPads “and a widespread malware infection have caused Internet consumption in the district to skyrocket to nearly three times as much as Palm Springs Unified or Desert Sands Unified districts.”
