Schools in Wales are set to benefit from faster broadband connections.
First minister Carwyn Jones revealed all learning institutes in the country will have access to the improved service following a £39 million cash injection from the Welsh government.
It is hoped that schools will be able to take advantage of the new setup in 2014, which should help to transform the way in which learning and teaching is provided in Welsh classrooms.
Secondary schools will make use of minimum speeds of 100 Mbps following the upgrade, while primary and special schools are guaranteed connections of at least 10 Mbps.
Mr Jones stated: “We want Wales to be a world leader in digital learning, therefore we need to be able to offer our schools fast, consistent and reliable broadband services.”
He added Welsh learning establishments should have access to world-class broadband services that are both safe and secure thanks to this new investment.
