Schools internet provision breakdown
After the success of my last post I was wondering if people have any good suggestions in regard to schools internet connections.
Presently one of the schools I have just taken over has a well.. dangerous internet connection. No network firewall to speak of and practically no filtering. There are only 15 machines on site so the requirements are low but County wants a £6,200 installation charge and £4,200 a year fee to provide a dedicated 4meg line and all appropriate security etc.
So I am looking at costing up some alternatives and wondering what people have done to achieve a more cost effective success either bringing in other services or hosting your own.
