Recommend me a Broadband Provider for a school
I know this is something that comes up a lot, but hey, I thought I'd ask the question again with my specifics.
We're looking at Broadband provision now at the school and what not. Probably looking towards FTTC and getting away from our Radio Link now that we're able to get decent speeds through UG feeds.
Ideally we need to be getting at least 10mb both ways on the line (this is what we currently get provided - well, meant to get). With this we'll need filtering, that we have control over - including ports and such for ideas going forward (i.e. non of this you can get things unblocked if you beg at the right time of the month with a blue moon shining by the noon day sun malarky *coughs* CLEO *coughs*). We could also do with inclusive AntiVirus protection as well.
E-mails will be looked after by going to Office 365 and web hosting will be sorted out as well independently.
The other main thing is to have a company that is fairly local to the school for any support and such, which is in Oswaldtwistle - Lancashire. If you know of any providers that meet all this then I'd love to hear from you, if you are a provider and want more information, please PM me and I'll do my best.
