As we head into an unknown future with more questions than answers, we must keep moving forward, one step at a time, guiding the engineers, teachers and builders of tomorrow into a future filled with possibility and promise.

Like many countries around the world, South African schools and tertiary educational institutions were closed during the lockdown to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. As the disease spread across our country like wildfire, it shone a light on the importance of being connected reliably, ensuring that each learner and educator has access to the Internet.

Sadly, statistics show as per the General Household Survey, that only a shocking 16.7% of households in Gauteng have fixed access to the Internet. This lack of reliable Internet connectivity has already affected many students, losing out on 30 to 59 days of school during the lockdown, not only affecting our children's education, but also their mental well-being.

In times of uncertainty, we must provide connectivity with a purpose to all students and educators. The need for consistent, reliable and unwavering network speeds is ever-increasing, yet finding a service provider that not only offers reliable connectivity but is also flexible, scalable and cost-effective is rare.

Comsol's Edu-Smart solution has been moulded and shaped to meet the high demand for Internet connectivity. Edu-Smart offers students and educators a licensed wireless link that can be used as a primary link or as a redundant service to make sure that your students never miss a class. This high-capacity solution offers carrier-grade end-to-end services with Internet breakout, utilising a combination of fibre-optic infrastructure with a robust licensed wireless last mile.

Become the educational institution that delivers premium e-learning services that your educators, parents and students can all benefit from.

Step into the future, harnessing connectivity with a purpose.
