The 60 schools remaining to be equipped with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) facilities will be online by August.
Prime Minister Bruce Golding, made the commitment during Tuesday(April 14) meeting of the House of Representatives’ Standing Finance Committee at Gordon House.
The schools will join 120 other educational institutions which 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 desktop computers; 22 laptops; and 5-10 projectors. The schools have LAN(Local Area Network) Internet connectivity, but a submission is on its way to Cabinet to ask for permission to upgrade to broadband, which has a wider range of frequencies.
The Prime Minister noted that the Fund would eventually address public libraries and Post Offices.
