Wireless provides more flexible digital learning and teaching. Some schools will be eligible for wireless SNUP (WSNUP) or schools can organise their own wireless connection.

Wireless ensures that schools are making full use of their ultra-fast broadband connection. It enables students to bring their own devices ‘BYOD’, giving teachers and learners increasingly better ways to work.

In isolated communities, your school may be the only place with wireless and you can choose to share this network with your community
