Antigua to Put Wi-Fi in High Schools

Secondary schools across Antigua and Barbuda will get campus-wide Wi-Fi internet as part of the government’s Technology for Education 20/20 Initiative.

As part of the programme, LIME will install Wi-Fi access points on all public and private secondary school compounds.

On Monday, representatives from the Ministry of Information and Lime Antigua Ltd held a meeting with school principals to discuss the rollout of the plan.

“I am very convinced, having spent a lot of time studying this, that having students and staff across the Internet can be a great equalizer in an increasingly competitive world,” said Information Minister Dr Edmond Mansoor. “We want to stay competitive … and any child starting from grade 1 who is not on the Internet is at a serious disadvantage.”

At this stage, the pilot project will begin at the Baptist Academy of Antigua and may begin next week.
