Vumatel has announced that it will provide free uncapped gigabit per second fibre to every school it passes as it deploys its network.

It successfully piloted the project with three schools: Greenside High, Hoërskool Linden and Parkhurst Primary.

“The response has been overwhelmingly positive,” Vumatel said.

Each school will be provided with a dedicated 1 Gigabit per second line, and will be able to choose from a variety of Internet service providers for free uncapped internet connectivity.

Cell C, Cool Ideas, and Vox Telecoms are on board with the project, with others set to join the initiative soon.

Vumatel has already started introducing fibre to additional schools and aims to provide free high speed connectivity to approximately 80 schools this year.
