We are fed up with our troublesome internet connection from our council. We are contemplating moving to another ISP.
I was intrested if other schools use their LEA/Council or a company like BT or C&W.
I don't even know if there are any legal impilcations. I saw something on the becta site http://ispsafety.ngfl.gov.uk/matrix_home.php but wasn't sure if that's useful.
At the moment we pay £8000 a year for internet access, and they also throw in a McAfee site license. The speed is supposed to be 8MB but hovers around 2MB at the moment.
The main reason is that we want staff access from home to our servers and the council are not getting anywhere (we have been asking them for 2-3 years at least).
