dbo:abstract
  • The London Grid for Learning (LGfL) provides a filtered broadband connection, network services, a common learning platform, online content and support communities for all schools across London. It operates as a consortium of 33 local education authorities (LEAs). It was launched in June 2000, and provides broadband connectivity to most of the 2,600 state schools in London.

Other NEN grid bodies include the West Midlands Regional Broadband Consortium (WMnet) and the . (en)
