Expanding the Network

We connected all public, post-secondary institutions in British Columbia to the powerful BCNET Advanced Network.

One of our key initiatives outlined in the BCNET strategic roadmap is to connect every public, post-secondary institution in BC to the Advanced Network. Between 2014 and 2018, we more than doubled the number of new site connections – from 64 to 165.

In this era of digital transformation at higher education institutions, connecting to the BCNET Advanced Network keeps our member institutions competitive. Our high-performance infrastructure boosts access to the data and technology that advance the strategic mandates of teaching, learning, and research, and is an efficient way to deliver BCNET shared IT solutions.
