Ericsson, UNICEF Push Schools Internet Connectivity

Ericsson and UNICEF on Thursday announced a global partnership to help map school connectivity in 35 countries by the end of 2023.

The mapping of internet connectivity landscape for schools and their surrounding communities is a critical first step towards providing every child with access to digital learning opportunities.

This joint effort is part of the Giga initiative which aims at connecting every school to the Internet. It was launched last year and led by UNICEF and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

Ericsson is the first private sector partner to make a multimillion-dollar commitment to the initiative and does so as a Global UNICEF Partner for School Connectivity Mapping.

According to the ITU, 360 million young people currently do not have access to the Internet, and this has resulted in exclusion, fewer resources to learn and limited opportunities for the most vulnerable children and the youth to fulfill their potential.
