Ecuador's kids to go google-eyed

20 May 2009

BNamericas writes that Ecuador’s telecoms council Conatel is aiming to install internet connections in around 4,600 schools by the end of this year, giving web access to about 2.5 million children. The project is being funded by universal service payments from telecoms operators, and fellow regulatory body Senatel reaffirmed its commitment to connect 100% of schools to the internet by the end of 2010.
