Six months after Massey Primary became the first school to connect to Network for Learning’s Managed Network more than 500 schools have now joined N4L, representing over 157,000 students.
“N4L is well on track to achieve its target of connecting 700 schools in 2014 and are now working to a new projection of connecting more than 900 by the end of the year,” said the company. “N4L is working with four new fibre companies as well as the four Local Fibre Companies (LFCs) delivering UFB and RBI services in an effort to connect all schools.”
In addition, more than 25 companies have become N4L-approved IT Support
Companies – and the list continues to grow. These companies are confirmed
by N4L as being suitable for providing services to support schools moving
to the Managed Network and are funded to do so. Schools that have the internal capability to carry out the move themselves can do so, however for those who don’t these support companies can take the pain out of moving.
