THE GOVERNMENT plans to establish broadband connections for rural schools in Vanua Levu by next year.

Speaking at the Macuata Provincial Council Meeting in Labasa, Telecom Fiji's Northern sales and marketing manager Setareki Daulako said the company was working closely with the government to provide broadband connections and essential communication devices to rural schools in the north.

"The program started this year and by next year we expect to have all schools installed with broadband connections," said Mr Daulako.

"Government aims to have all rural schools with proper communication devices by next year.

"In fact, the program is to cover all rural schools around the country."

Mr Daulako said Telecom Fiji was proud to work on the development of the nation's future citizens.

"The establishment of broadband connections in schools will ensure students have access to internet and connect to the wide world to know of the latest activities out there through a click.

"The company is also focusing on assisting small businesses to enhance business through the use of the latest technologies we provide."
