Your school's ICT network
New Zealand schools have recently had their ICT infrastructure upgraded through the School Network Upgrade Project (SNUP). Find out how to set up and maintain your upgraded ICT network.
Choose an internet service provider
Your school can either use the free, government-funded Network for Learning (N4L) service or choose and pay for a different retail service provider (RSP).
Installing a wireless system or additional access points in your school can:
- provide a more flexible digital learning and teaching environment, and
- help you make full use of your ultra-fast broadband connection.
It’s your responsibility to make sure your school’s network is protected against risks such as hacking, spam and access to inappropriate content.
Your school is responsible for keeping your upgraded ICT network maintained to the current Ministry standard.
Any fibre connection to a new or relocating school is arranged by the relevant build project. Contact us if you have any questions.
You can use your school’s internet infrastructure to help provide home internet for your community, making your school a digital hub.
By harnessing the collective buying power of approximately 2700 State sector agencies including schools, government has positioned itself as a customer of choice and is able to achieve substantial cost savings.
