Schools might end up without internet connections
Schools might end up without internet connections. Internet is provided by Slovak Telekom (ST) based on an old contract extended in 2016. The public procurement authority ÚVO ruled recently that the extension broke a law, said that the Education Ministry will be fined, and ordered it to terminate the contract. The Ministry has already selected a new provider, Swan. ST, though, challenged the new tender and a court ruled that the Ministry can’t sign a contract with Swan just yet. Slovensko.Digital says this is the result of the Ministry pushing for a bad solution; namely, a centralized internet for all schools.
