Different Broadband Supplier
Has anyone in the Cleo area moved their broadband away to someone else but kept the Westfield Center as their SIMS support?
If so how difficult is it to do?
Also, who have you gone with for broadband?
If you had to go with someone else for SIMS support, who was that?
Thanks in advance.

You can come to us for broadband quotations if you like. We have a number of competitive packages we could offer.

Do send me a PM if you want to get in touch.

I know quite a few schools around the preston area moved with a company called Virtue Technologies, they were offering a like for like service to what One Connect/Cleo offered. i.e. boardband, filtering, email, moodle and A/V.
For SIMS support you could go direct to Capita.

Out of Interest, has lancashire recieved the CLEO charges for 2013/14 yet or is it just Cumbria that's left high and dry waiting?

We don't use virtue for broadband but they did do our meru install and I found them to be an excellent company

@Cache as far as I know, we haven't had any prices through, but i've heard rumors there may be a price rise of anything up to 20%, how true they are is another thing.

Thanks @dezt, had been told there would be a small increase.
Wonder if we'll get April for free then since it's the last day tomorrow with no charges?

We went with Virtue Technologies, as we've worked closely with them for quite a while on other aspects of the network/upgrades etc. but have stayed with The W.C. for SIMS Support, mainly because we missed the deadline for giving notice...
We'll be looking at alternatives before the renewal date comes, there are two options I'm thinking of at the moment, one is a company through Virtue, the other will be directly with Capita...

Just had our renewal through.. almost double (95% increase) on the broadband costs.. already looking at alternatives!

has anybody else been given there schools pricing from OCL for this year, i did notice in this months newsletter from them, they said costs for broadband had finally been released. I thought it would be about 50% at most. @dgsmith so what has yours gone from to if you dont mind me asking.
17th May 2013, 06:38 PM #12
Wow, that's one hefty increase!
Meanwhile, here in Cumbria I'm still waiting.....

We got ours through today, can't believe how much it is, SBM told me to get prices in for moving away.
OCL don't help themselves with our broadband, 4mbs download and 3mbs upload today on speedtest

Not had our pricing through as yet but taking tentative steps looking elsewhere ie schools Broadband Rm Broadband etc .
20th May 2013, 03:20 PM #15
Yes it's gone up and we budgeted for a price rise as hinted earlier on but not for that much and we didn't expect the final figure through after April when all the budgets have been set!
