School of Engineering & EBS
The School of Engineering, through the Stanford Educational Broadband Service (EBS) spectrum program, issues T-Mobile LTE-enabled devices to participating University programs.
Use of Stanford EBS Devices
To maintain our contractual terms and conditions, set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), we are required to survey EBS users on hours of LTE usage for educational/research activities. Furthermore, Stanford EBS devices must cumulatively meet the minimum hours of LTE usage in each FCC-defined Geographical Service Area.
