The Government established N4L as a Crown-owned company to develop and operate a managed network for schools. The Managed Network will provide all schools with Government funded access to reliable, fast, safe internet connections with uncapped data. Over 1000 schools were connected in 2014 and all schools will be offered a connection by the end of 2016.

The Ministry of Education wants to help schools use technology to achieve education goals and make a difference for their students. All schools are encouraged to review their strategic planning and curriculum using the range of tools related to learning with digital technologies on the Enabling e-Learning website. Schools can be assisted with this by contacting the Connected Learning Advisory service
