All schools enjoy free Internet

QĐND – Saturday, December 18, 2010, 22:18 (GMT+7)

The Ministry of Education and Training and the Viettel Telecom Group (Viettel) reviewed Internet provision programme for schools and launched the informatisation plan in schools in Hanoi on December 18.

Between September 2008 and July 2010, Viettel fully implemented the programme of providing free Internet for more than 29,500 schools across the country. 

This allows over 25 million teachers and students to access Internet for learning and research purposes. 

Pham Vu Luan, the Minister of Education and Training, said Vietnam is now one of the few countries in the world that has entirely free Internet connection in schools.  

According to the 2010 report of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO), Vietnam was ranked as high as Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand in terms of the use of information technology (IT) in education.
