Multiven Announces US$125m Worth of Free Internet Network Maintenance Services for Schools Worldwide


Silicon Valley, California – February 2, 2010 – Multiven – the global leader in premium multivendor Internet protocol network maintenance services, today announced the launch of its Net-for-Schools program, a global initiative aimed at providing schools with US$125 million worth of free network infrastructure maintenance services in an effort to ensure ubiquitous Internet connectivity and seamless access to online educational resources for students. Under the Net-for-Schools program, Multiven will give away free network maintenance services to schools in need for every network maintenance service contract it sells.

The Internet enhances education, collaboration and leadership development for students by providing instant access to knowledge, enabling real-time communication and creating global awareness. It is a critical resource for teaching future generation of leaders, scientists, and entrepreneurs particularly with the growing popularity of e-learning and virtual classrooms. For every network maintenance service contract sold, Multiven will give away similar service coverage to a school in need for free. The Net-for-Schools program coverage will include 24x7 direct-to-expert™ technical support, unlimited software support and IT asset management tools valued at US$125 million.

“The Internet as an empowering tool for children’s education cannot be over-emphasized. Unfortunately, sourcing adequate annual funding for network infrastructure maintenance has been a huge barrier to adoption and success for many schools, especially under the current climate of reduced social services expenditure” said Peter Alfred-Adekeye – CEO of Multiven. “It is our hope that the Multiven Net-for-Schools Program will help alleviate this challenge and serve as our humble contribution towards the educational development of tomorrow’s leaders"

The program’s allocation and start dates are as follows:

* North America – $25 million, February 8, 2010
* South America – $25 million, February 8, 2010
* Europe – $25 million, May 10, 2010
