Internode’s 100 Mbps service was used to link the South Australian school with an event at the Sydney Opera House as part of the NBN-Enabled Education & Skills Services Program. This is the latest initiative to benefit students and teachers using the NBN service, which Internode has provided for the past year.
Willunga High School Deputy Principal, Cathy Trenouth, said that Internode has provided a fantastic partnership with Willunga High School for NBN enabled education.
"They have been very responsive to our emerging needs in the NBN environment by providing a prompt service, accommodating our need for ‘on the fly’ data plan changes and upgrades. Through their partnership we have been provided with a reliable, high speed NBN internet service," she said.
iiNet CEO Michael Malone said the Willunga High launch demonstrated the real opportunities available to schools, students, and teachers using the NBN.
"The ability to reach across the country so that our national experts can share their passion and skills with local students is truly amazing," he said.
"Just as Australia led the world with School of the Air six decades ago, we’re at the forefront again - using the latest technology to overcome the tyranny of distance. We’re proud to be part of this major change in the way education is being delivered in Australia."
As part of the iiNet Group, Internode is committed to delivering the full benefits of broadband and the NBN to its customers, ranging from residential users and businesses to schools such as Willunga High following Internode’s first NBN-connected school, Circular Head Christian School in Tasmania.
