Information about the project
Community Access to Broadband at Schools
Ministry of Education’s project for providing 42,500 primary and secondary schools with broadband access is underway. These computer rooms having connected to the Internet with DSL are usually not functional after schools hours. So, necessary arrangements, such as staff assignments, security measures, etc., are going to be completed in 2005 by the Ministry of Education in order to allow the community in the neighborhood to enjoy broadband access. This would enable a broad range of people, including those who cannot afford to have a PC, to access to the Internet and help narrowing the digital divide in Turkey.
National implementation:
Planned for future from to 2005
Ministry of Interior
