The vendor is providing temporary service with slower speeds because of infrastructure needed to meet reimbursement standards faces construction permitting delays, said Taling Taitano, deputy superintendent for finance. The Department of Public Works needs to give the company permission to trench public roads.

The department has paid $11,165 a month since July 2011, a total of about $200,000. "We are paying them at the level of service they provide," Taitano said. She said the speed is 100 Mbps at the department's network operating center.

The speeds are "sufficient to meet the schools' requirements," Day said.

Public Auditor Doris Flores Brooks said she will bring up GTA's concerns at a meeting later this month.
