The Government is still struggling to provide reliable Internet services to schools across the island, and this is being blamed on the high number of Zoom and Skype meetings now being held.
Additionally, the virtual learning platforms that were adopted since the lockdown of schools reportedly have challenged the capacity of the delivery systems.
Accordingly, once again, the Cabinet has agreed to strengthen Internet capability at both the secondary and primary levels, and the Antigua Public Utilities Authority reportedly has secured funding to achieve better broadband capacity.
Information Minister Melford Nicholas says primary schools pose more of a challenge with getting connectivity.
Meanwhile, Nicholas says that private schools have also made representation to the Government for Internet services.
He says the new school year should see primary schools being fully equipped with the connectivity they require.
