BT helps wire schools

BT announces Monday a broadband service to join up schools, colleges, libraries and Citizens Advice Bureaux for discount prices

Dubbed LearningStream, the service will give schools high speed access to the Internet for between £2000 and £3000 a year. The service will run at two megabits a second and allow schools to connect up to 200 computers simultaneously.

General manager of BT Education Jim Moore describes the broadband services as "the next step forward, providing the learning community with broadband at affordable prices". BT (quote: BT.A) currently has 19,500 schools connected to the Internet via its narrowband service.
