A digital connectivity pilot project has already begun in seven schools around the country.
The Australian Government through its Fiji Program Support Facility has provided funds for the project.
The initiative will help schools to connect better to the cellular system that already exists.
Australian Government’s Counsellor for Development Cooperation for Fiji and Tuvalu, Christina Munzer says they will be working closely with the Ministry of Education as seven pilot schools have received IT upgrades and new IT equipment to enable better coverage and more stable connections.
Munzer handed internet connectivity equipment to Bayly Memorial Primary School and Navesau Adventist High School yesterday.
She says Australia is committed to support Fiji’s efforts to improve its educational curricular and operational needs and the internet connectivity pilot study has the potential to revolutionize internet access to all schools in Fiji.
