School broadband/leased line
Firstly, not sure if this is in the right section of the forum but I didn't know where else to place it.
I am starting to look around at coming out of our LEA's broadband service to our school. I need to give 6 months notice to the end of contract, so need to have a decision in place by September.
We are a small school, approx 120 children on site with about 100 staff. We are a special school and as such the internet is not used extensively. At most, we will have no more than 20 users on it at any one time. (At the moment, we only have 40 class computers and a further 10 office/staff room machines - most of the children who use the computers work from local programs and do not extensively utilise the internet).
We currently pay some £6500 per year for the Broadband SLA.
I've obtained some quotes for a 10Mb leased line for about £5k per year. 20Mb would be £5.5k per year.
However, and please excuse my ignorance here, but is there any reason I could ditch a leased line all together and go with a business 'unlimited' regular broadband account? We're close to the exchange which is FTTC enabled, so I should be able to receive 20Mbps on a "regular" broadband connection which would cost me less than £500 a year!
Am I missing anything obvious?
