DIGICEL Fiji has provided free broadband internet by Unwired to Hilton Special School in Suva last week.

The special school — one of the country's most respected schools for children with special needs — will now enhance its teaching services to students.

Digicel's public relations manager, Zaheer Hassan said internet had since been adopted by the Hilton students as a versatile learning tool.

"What was previously a time-consuming exercise with students sifting through books in libraries for information, research on a topic can now be conducted within a few seconds using the internet," Mr Hassan said.

School headteacher Nanise Ravisa said the Unwired 4G internet service had enhanced teaching and learning at the school.

"It has enabled students to effectively conduct online research for their assignments and projects, as well as get updated information compared to textbooks," Ms Ravisa said.

She said teachers had been equally benefiting from the service as it allowed them to access numerous resources that helped them in their teaching

Head of corporate sales at Unwired 4G, Charlotte Taylor said the provision of free internet was part of Unwired's continued support for the school.

She said that with Unwired 4G's high capacity and speeds of up to 8Mbps, it will make learning and teaching a whole new and fun experience for teachers and students alike,
