The Government established N4L as a Crown-owned company to develop and operate a managed network for schools. The Managed Network provides all schools with Government funded access to reliable, fast, safe internet connections with uncapped data.
N4L is rolling out an upgrade designed to provide schools with a safer, smarter online learning environment. They are enhancing online security services, providing greater internet capacity (i.e. more data), and reducing technical complexity to provide technology that’s safe and optimised for learning.
The upgrade is fully funded and will be completed for all schools by Term 4, 2019.
In August 2018, N4L will appoint an initial panel of IT support companies to help ensure the rollout is delivered in a timely, seamless and supportive manner. A schedule will be developed from September and will be shared with schools in advance.
