Information about the project
Schools Project
NTRC Schools Project
National telecommunications Regulatory Commission Schools Project was signed on June 7th 2011 with Telecommunications provider Cable and saw the introduction of high-speed wireless internet services to all One Hundred and Seven (107) educational institutions in St Vincent and the Grenadines. This wireless internet service was provided on the interior and the exterior of each location. Each school was outfitted with two connections with speeds up to 20 Mbps each. These speeds allow for the easy integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into the educational curriculum, especially where video streaming is being utilized. Such speeds also facilitate online/distance learning programs, not just from international sources but also within our state. A content management system was also established for this project to prevent access to undesirable content on the internet by the students at each school.

Ongoing from 07/06/2011 to 20/01/2026
