Easynet - an active unbundler of local loops - is to supply broadband to 135,000 children in Surrey in a four-year contract worth £10m.

Easynet will provide all 418 primary and secondary schools in Surrey with a fully managed network, enabling internet access at a minimum of 2mbps for primary schools and 10mbps for secondary schools.

The high-speed links will give teachers and pupils fast, safe, reliable access to the internet as part of the South East Grid for Learning (SEGfL) framework.

The Government has set a target that all schools in the UK should have broadband by 2006.

Separately, Scottish telco Thus said it had extended its contract with ScottishPower to provide the energy group with voice and data services across all its UK sites.

The multi-million pound contract includes voice and data services, covering support, maintenance, consultancy, network monitoring and disaster recovery. ®
