Universal Wi-Fi in Moscow Schools by March

All Moscow schools will be equipped with wireless Internet by the end of February, City Hall said in a statement Monday.

"Wi-Fi gives teachers and pupils additional freedom and possibilities for using electronic educational resources," Alexander Gorbatko, deputy head of the city's Information Technology Department was quoted in the statement as saying.

MGTS, which has provided telecommunications to city schools since 2011, will organize and service the networks. As part of its service, it will filter out inappropriate content.

All schools currently enjoy high-speed Internet access of 10 megabits per second and faster, and Gorbatko said the city has made "serious investments" in upgrading school computers. Schools have been furnished with laptops, which can be used in any class and in academic subjects as varied as geography and foreign languages.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
