High speed internet rollout milestone

16 August 2019

The rollout of fast, reliable internet to all public schools in the state has reached a major milestone this week, passing the 100,000 student mark with the connection of Norwood Primary School.

Norwood Primary School will be using the increased speed and reliability to support the delivery of innovative lessons, with students and teachers looking forward to accessing a wider range of learning resources and support online.

Government schools located at all points of the compass, including metropolitan Adelaide, Mount Gambier, Murray Bridge, Bordertown and Port Augusta, have been hooked up to fibre optic internet providing speeds up to 1000 times quicker than their previous connection.

By mid-2020, 507 school sites are set to be connected via a fibre optic network, while the four remaining sites will use other solutions to deliver a high speed connection.
