Despite warnings from the WV Office of Technology that spending over $22K each for high-end Cisco routers was overkill, the WV Department of Homeland Security spent over $24 million on routers suitable for a college campus, and then placed them in small schools, health clinics, and libraries. For example, the Hurricane Branch of Putnam County Libraries, which has four (4) public terminals.

Cisco rates the units for 500 users minimum, and they're capable of handling tens of thousands of connected devices.
