About the data
All information in this report is aggregated and no school or individual can be identified. You can find out more about how N4L collects and uses data from the Managed Network in our Privacy Statement. An independent third party assisted with the data work in this report (Datamine Limited).
N4L’s Managed Network internet services are used by all state and state-integrated schools. When school internet users visit and search for websites, the amount of data consumed, and where it stems from (website domains), is collected in accordance with our Privacy Statement. The data consumption includes automated traffic such as software updates.
Term 2 Snapshot | April – July 2020
Consumption per student per region in Term 2
We focus on the second school term, April 15th – July 3rd 2020, which included 22 weekdays when schools were closed due to the COVID-19 nationwide lockdown. During this time, students were learning from home and not using our network. Throughout the report, some comparisons have been made to the data from the previous term (January 27th – March 27th), when schools were closed for up to four days.
