“Access to online resources and educational materials can have a life-changing impact on students, said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and CEO of Qualcomm.
“Not only will they have connectivity that enables access to learning materials and communities for the first time, but they will also have the opportunity to gain specialized skills and training.”
Six wireless labs have now been established in Can Tho City in the Mekong Delta.
Through the provisioning of affordable, high-quality and reliable Internet connectivity to schools where landline access is limited or unavailable, the wireless lab project strives to help students bridge the digital divide and addresses the goal of universal access and opportunity in education.
