Mobitel partners with Education Ministry and TRCSL to provide high speed internet to schools countrywide

The National Mobile Service Provider Mobitel recently partnered with the Data Management Unit of the Ministry of Education and the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission Sri Lanka (TRCSL) for the launch of the School Net II project to provide high-speed 4G LTE internet access to a large number of schools countrywide for the benefit of the students.

Mobitel will act as one of the leading mobile operators that would contribute to the large scale service initiative for schools that do not have adequate internet access. Under this new project conducted by the Ministry of Education, a selected set of schools across the country will be fully equipped with the best high-speed internet facilities from Mobitel through its 4G LTE network.

The Ministry of Education partnered with Mobitel on the significant occasion to provide internet access to school children on a large scale. The programme is important as it enables school going children, even at the grass roots, to develop their understanding of information technology which in the long-run would meet the demands of a fast-developing world.

Mobitel strives to increase business potential in other markets while also stimulating the education system with knowledge-based ICT enabled technology and other resources. The School Net ll programme in particular would have a significant impact on schools as it will promote the use of internet and computers amongst even the most remote schools that would normally not have access to such services.

The internet solution would be further beneficial to schools as it would allow teachers and administrators to change passwords when necessary to ensure that the services are used essentially for educational needs. The Schools Net ll initiative is expected to further enhance the learning opportunities of school students and to develop their skills and future progress.

Mobitel has maintained a strong commitment to merge its expertise in information technology and communication with the development of a wide number of industries for Sri Lanka’s socio-economic progress, and as an effort to give back to society. Education has been one such area where Mobitel has fuelled its efforts for a vast and positive

transformation through ICT. Other education-related ICT initiatives by Mobitel include the iCard project – which uses the latest NFC technology to ensure the safety and security of school students, and the mLearning platform which promotes distance learning through long-term local university partnerships are some of the key initiatives Mobitel has introduced to education in recent times.
