NORTH ANDOVER, MA -- March 13th, 2009 -- L-com Global Connectivity announced today that they have donated approximately $15,000 worth of Category 5e modular cable to the Ben Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT), located in Boston, MA.
The donation, delivered on Friday, March 13th, will help students by providing quality bulk cable for them to learn the structure and architecture of modular networks.
"These are challenging economic times," said Tim May, Assistant Operations and Facilities Manager. "It's times like these that we must remember where we came from. The Ben Franklin Institute of Technology has flourished in its over-200 year history because it encourages technological training in the tradition of Benjamin Franklin."

Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT) began enrolling students in September 1908. Its name then was the Franklin Union, and its mission was what it remains today: to be a place for young people and working men and women to advance themselves through technical training. New as it was, its origins could be traced back over a hundred years to one of the last public acts of the greatest American of his generation. http://www.bfit.edu/
