Latvian schools to get better Internet coverage

The Ministry of Education and Science (IZM) has signed a memorandum to increase Internet data transmission capacity in Latvian schools, IZM said February 1.

The memorandum provides that schools with insufficient Internet quality can look forward to improvements.

Minister for Education and Science Ilga Šuplinska (New Conservative Party) pointed out that one of the biggest problems of Latvian schools is uneven development. The launch of cooperation will allow more pupils to participate successfully in the remote learning process.

In a survey of local governments organized by the Latvian Association of Local Governments (LPS) on the connection and speed of the Internet used in schools, data showed insufficient Internet speeds for approximately 300 schools. Therefore, organizations and businesses in different areas have agreed on cooperation to carry out the necessary tasks at the most rapid and cost-effective increase in Internet capacity, primarily in these educational establishments.

IZM hopes to increase Internet connection capacity  for approximately 280 Latvian schools by the beginning of March.
