The first primary school has been connected to a fibre network funded by the Government.
The Prime Minister John Key launched it at Massey Primary School in Auckland.
The connection is part of the $211 million Network for Learning, which provides schools with fast internet, uncapped data, content filtering and network security services.
Mr Key told pupils they will now be able to take as much information as they like from the internet and 10 times faster.
About 700 schools are expected to be connected by the end of next year.
