We currently get our broadband through our LEA and for various reasons are strongly considering getting our own solution in.
I'm thinking a 100mb leased line should do the job. We have our own TMG on site that we can use for the filtering and have Sophos Antivirus.
Can anyone suggest a good provider?
Also are there any more considerations I need to make before pursuing this?

We jumped from the LEA to Zen, we get ADSL backup for free if you have a PSTN line onsite to take it, and well its Zen, actual Tech people at the end of a phone and not script monkeys....
PM Me your postcode.
If you're in the market for renewal pricing for Broadband provision (including leased lines, FTTC, SIP trunking etc) feel free to contact us.
We find our prices are far more competitive than BT, also with shorter contract terms (usually 3 years vs BT's 5 )
Couple that with Fortinet firewall solutions and the prospect suddenly becomes better than most BT/LEA renewal quotes.

We went with Vaioni about 18 months ago and it's been just dandy - good pricing on them and never had any problems.
I may or may not have a smug smile on my face when I get circulars from county about problems with their RBC.
Well we are here @ SchoolsBroadband
Not sure what Glenda is on about ref Fortinet. They are brilliant firewalls. We've been using them for years.
Perhaps i've just been unlucky - they are ok when they work - configuring them is a nightmare when you compare to items such as Watchguards etc
Another recommendation for M247. Our new leased line with EFM backup has just gone live. Got it sorted in extra quick time and everyone I've dealt with has been great
We manage our own firewall however (Palo Alto PA-4020) with Smoothwall filtering (SWG-1200's - 3 of them atm ) for the best of both worlds.
I'd like to chip in a recommendation for Schools Broadband based on the excellent service had by several schools in my area. Fortinet is easy to work with and the built in VPN gubbins are damn handy. ADSL backup costs an extra £nearlybuggerall because ADSL costs £nearlybuggerall anyway.
They are fairly straight forward to setup - but then i find that with most firewalls when you understand what you are doing.
We use a mix of Draytek, MicroTik and Cisco depending on the application.
