CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Government says its latest R2 billion project will ensure all schools in the province will have free high-speed internet by next year.

Earlier this year, during her state of the province address, Premier Helen Zille announced eight so-called 'game changers', which her office will focus on.

Yesterday, Zille launched the first Game Changer which is e-learning.

Zille's spokesperson Michael Mpofu says government has budgeted R2 billion to provide connectivity to all schools across the province.

"We launched an e-portal which is effectively a site where learners, teachers, parents, governing body members can go onto the site, contribute to the site and access different learning materials; be it past exam papers, text books, anything content that will assist in the process of learning."
