JANET(UK) enables network access on the move with new 3G data service
Learning and research on the move has just become much easier as JANET(UK) has announced the launch of its new high capacity data service for education institutions and research organisations, JANET 3G. From June 2011, the data service will allow academic and support staff to remotely access vital resources such as research data, virtual learning environments and library catalogues while on the move. With over 60 enquiries already received in the first week of its launch, from both universities and colleges, the appetite for this new service is evident. Communications Minister Ed Vaizey said: "I am delighted that the education sector is putting in place plans to provide wireless broadband for the academic community. This is a really exciting development and will help us achieve our goal of having the best broadband in Europe by 2015."
