The sixty schools remaining to be equipped with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) facilities will be online by August.
Prime Minister Bruce Golding, made this report during the meeting of the Standing Finance Committee in Parliament yesterday (April 14).
The schools will join 120 other institutions that were outfitted with support from the Universal Access Fund, which has collected more than $5 billion from telecom providers.
The average level of outfitting for each school is: 56 desktops, 22 laptops and 5 to ten projectors. The schools have LAN Internet connectivity, but a submission is on its way to Cabinet to ask for permission to upgrade to broadband.
The Prime Minister noted that the Fund would eventually address public libraries and Post Offices.
