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.
The School Network Upgrade Project (SNUP) came to an end in 2016.
If your school's network was upgraded before 2012, you will have the option to have a subsidised upgrade to wireless.
Check to see if your school is part of the WSNUP upgrade.
Concerns about the safe use of WiFi in schools arise as schools increasingly adopt WiFi technology. The Ministry seeks expert advice from the Ministry of Health on all matters related to health. The Ministry of Health recently affirmed its position that exposure to radioactive fields from WiFi equipment in schools does not pose a health risk to staff or students in the area where it is used.
Measurements in New Zealand and overseas show that exposures to radio frequency fields from WiFi equipment are extremely low, amounting to tiny fractions of the limit allowed for the public in the New Zealand radio frequency field exposure standard .
