School Broadband

All schools will have access to faster broadband connections.

All schools will have access to faster broadband connections as a result of £39m from the Welsh government!

Councils will receive £27m of capital to upgrade internet connections for schools. They will also be able to provide primary and special schools with £10,000 and secondary schools with £20,000 to buy better hardware. It will mean a minimum speed of 100Mbps (megabits per second) for secondary schools and 10Mbps for primary and special schools by 2014, the Welsh government said.
