Schools Network

Utilising existing HEAnet National Education Network, we also deliver and manage a centralised Schools Network.  This Schools Network connects all primary and post-primary schools in Ireland to the internet, serving the needs of over 900,000 students and teachers across 4,000 schools every day.

The Schools Network was set up under the Irish Government’s Broadband for Schools Programme and encompasses the Schools 100Mbps High Speed Network Programme – designed, built and managed by HEAnet, we deliver universal coverage across Ireland’s post-primary schools with high-speed connectivity.

We provide the actual network connection to Ireland’s schools, which is then utilised by private broadband suppliers.

Under-pinning the Government’s Digital Strategy now and into the next decade.

As Schools traffic continues to grow, the core network is being upgraded to increase the capacity from 40 Gbps up to approximately 70 Gbps enabling future expansion and secure connectivity into the future.

Reliable, ubiquitous broadband continues to transform the educational experience across the country allowing teachers and students develop their digital skills.
