London calling

To successfully realize the United Kingdom's London Grid for Learning (LGfL) project, a broadband network connecting 2,600 London Schools across 620 square miles populated with 65,000 teachers and one million pupils, the collaborative consortium completing this project overcame significant obstacles to finish the project on budget and a year early. This article profiles the consortium's experience in realizing this project. In doing so, it overviews the project's history, discussing the many challenges--political, physical, operational--that the consortium resolved to complete this project. It also describes how the consortium worked with the schools and the teachers to encourage their use of the network.
