EduNet High Speed Internet for Public Schools
Fixed Cost Ultra-Fast Broadband for Education
EduNet is a high-speed dedicated fibre network that provides quality unmetered internet access, both domestic and international, for schools and other Educational Institutes throughout New Zealand. EduNet is available over the Vector Fibre Network, UFB and RBI network providing access in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch with further network expansion planned.
Schools and Educational Institutes have been connecting to EduNet over the Vector Communications fast fibre optic network since 2007.
How it works
EduNet is delivered using either the established VectorFibre MetroetherNet service, UFB or RBI and offers completely open connectivity between institutions and their users. With access speeds of up to 1Gbps, EduNet connects educational institutions and Content Providers to each other for rapid, cost effective collaboration.
Content Providers include Libraries, Universities, TV3, e aTTle, eTV and a number of data centers. Content is delivered purely over fibre, not using legacy technologies such as copper. Fibres outstanding throughput moves the goal posts for multimedia delivery, and at the same time reduces the overall bandwidth costs which is passed back to schools.
EduNet Internet offers schools a choice of flat-rate bandwidth up to 1 Gbps.
