Here in Birmingham we're very lucky. Birmingham City Council have a contract with Telewest I believe (Virgin now) and rolled out 10Mbps fibre to every school. This means each school get a dedicated 1MB/s up and down and is great when it works for downloading huge files.
Prior to this, many schools were using standard Business ADSL which was awful when so many users were browsing/downloading content.
At home I'm currently getting 7616Kbps as I am under 1km from my exchange and that's with Orange.
The alternative if fibre is too expensive is SDSL if your exchange supports it? Many businesses/schools can benefit with a higher upload speed.

We are looking at expanding our connection up to 4x2meg over the summer. We cover the cost by adding a small sum termly to the fee's and this covers the cost of the internet.
