Mexico's communications and transportation ministry (SCT) has reached an agreement with the country's Union of Entrepreneurs for Technology in Education (Unete) to bring free internet access to over 7,600 schools. The initiative is part of the government's National Digital Strategy to boost digital skills and daily ICT use in schools.

"The aim of this effort is to give Mexican children more solid tools with which to become part of the knowledge society," said new communications undersecretary Monica Aspe Bernal. Unete said the agreement will benefit over 2.4 million students and 99,000 teachers.
