700 schools around New Zealand are now connected to the Network for Learning - 7 of them in the Rimutaka electorate. The Network for Learning provides fast, dependable internet to schools. The roll-out is almost five months ahead of schedule.

High-quality, high-speed internet is essential for students, teachers and schools in the modern economy. The better we can ensure that every student can benefit from technology to achieve their best, the more prosperous New Zealand's future will be.

The Government is investing $211 million in the Managed Network, which will provide quick and reliable internet complete with uncapped data, web filtering and network security services for all New Zealand schools wishing to participate.
