The LA will be adding the 10% to cover management charges, billing, vat charges etc... ours is doing something similar I believe.

We are happy for all our academies to stay with us, they can go directly to the RBC instead if they want. When people say the LA is putting the price up it is usually that the cost has previously been subsidised or covered by the LA or any grants (in part or in full) and there is not the money to do that anymore. If you want to hear me rant about why Mr Gove is right about Capita grants followed by why he is so wrong, and about how it is then twisted about to cost schools and LAs more money then you all know how to get me going at the conference!

We use Global, they were the cheapest but we area local to one of their data centres.
Never except the first price as the final price.
As for leaving the LA you dont have to, but we found the LA were actually more expensive over a 3 year period.

We had this "deal" 3 years ago or so, with "free" installation. They came out and did a survey then came back with a list of "additional charges" which basically came to around the cost of the "free installation". It appeared that the free installation is really a free connection charge.. not installation. On a positive however the service form BT has been excellent and an upgrade from a 8Mb on a 10Mb bearer upto 60Mb on a 100Mb bearer was quick and painless.
