    Who is your internet provider?

    Hello there,

    I have been asked to very tentaively collect some quotes for moving our internet service (and therefore filtering) away from our current service, farmed out by the LEA to a 3rd party.

    I was wondering which companies other people are using? I would like the option of content filtering included, but also the option to handle our own if needs be.

    Other than that I am open to suggestions!

    Thanks for your time.

    We've recently moved to Schools Broadband who will offer you a quote with lightspeed filtering and fortinet firewall included. When we compared them to other providers we approached, they seemed to offer the most complete package at a reasonable cost.

    We're a reasonably large secondary school using one of their 100mbit fibre lines. Three weeks after install, we're very happy at the moment.

    Nope just us

    Thanks @IrritableTech . It's always great to get good feedback on our service particularly when you were such a hard chap to convince

    We're on a leased fibre line (including Fortigate firewall) with Vaioni, have been for nearly three years, with filtering done in house with a Smoothwall. Still delighted with the combination.

    They also do or could do hosted filtering if required.

    Changed the thread title to make it reflect the question.
