The Network for Learning Limited (N4L) was founded in the belief that equitable access to digital technology, will empower young New Zealanders to succeed in education and beyond. This belief drives and motivates our staff, as we empathetically design and deliver digital technologies, helping to create a future-ready, world-ready Aotearoa New Zealand.

Network for Learning (N4L) connects more than 2400 schools across New Zealand to fast, reliable, safe, uncapped internet via our Managed Network. The service is fully funded and managed for schools, allowing every student and teacher seamless access to the internet, regardless of where they go to school.

We connected the first school to the Managed Network at the end of 2013 and within three years, 97% of all New Zealand schools were on board. We work alongside government, education and technology partners to help schools get the most from digital connectivity.

The way schools are using the internet continues to evolve –  they are using more of it, adding more devices, and connecting outside of the classroom. We are here to support schools along their digital journey as they equip students to be confident, connected lifelong learners.

N4L is a Crown Company with a focus is on delivering benefits to the education sector.
