    for that much you can easily get a leased line and filtering - I've just signed up to Global AXS on 100MB over fiber for that price.

    For 10MB on 100mb bearer you are looking at about 8k from them for the line leaving 4.5k for smoothie (or other filtering) which means you are quids in - it then slowly increments up. I personally @mats would be looking away as that seems stupidly high.

    We also have embc hosted mail. I suspect that moving email to another provider will be a royal PITA.
    ouch. 8400 for 30Mb on a 100Mb/s bearer here. (Vaioni)
    You could probably get an 10 Mb/s EFM circuit for about 4k!!!

    Hosted mail is easy to move, just get a google domain for free.

    Interesting. Setup / install costs for your connection?

    gmail. I use it for personal mail (and it's great) but it's a leap changing the school over..

    2500 setup - If you need fibre installed then you'll need to pay around 4000 for an 'excess construction charge' . Vaioni have recently been promoting 35Mb/s EFM though, so this would be worth looking into.

    We're on Vaioni here as well, have been for a year, 20mb on 100mb bearer, and it does the job very well and at a very good price. Think ours worked out at 25k total over a three year commitment, set up & running costs etc.

    Only issue to bear in mind is that not every ISP can act as DNS for a .sch.uk address. Our DNS records are still hosted by RM as a result, not that it's much hassle.

    Does anyone else think this is excessive? We only have 200 pupils, so a maximum of about 20 people using the connection at the same time. I reckon straightforward ADSL would be faster!
    OCC are updating their lines for Primarys soon enough with a comercial system - should be on the way by 2014 (were another Oxfordshire school btw).

    Anyone use RM Connectivity? I have an idea of cost, but would like to know more about service from someone who uses it.

    Cheers.

    CSNewmedia can host them - We transferred over, now don't need to wait 2+ weeks for RM to fulfil a change request as we can do it online.
