    Morning All

    Can anyone out there recommend a quality ISP for an independent school to use? They need to offer a filtering service approriate for KS1 and KS2.

    Regards

    we use redstone4schools

    Its about 2000 a year for the enhanced filtering package and they run our email system too. Pretty pricey if you ask me, but hey.

    When it works its great, 8mb and 0.8mb up. When theres the slightest problem, their support is non existant. You log a fault and maybe 3 days later they will phone you back.

    We use EMBC for our main school line, however we also have a NTL business line coming in as a backup line, online exams, etc.

    You can get the NTL business line for about 500 a year (for a 10mg line) then buy something line Bloxx for your filtering.

    You could also get the NTL dedicated line for about 15k pa and that 8mb up & down.

    Personally I'd say you'd be better off using a isp that can guarantee a stable line, and then doing filtering in-house.

    You'll have far greater control - and normally MUCH better filtering

    We're independent - age 3 months to 11 - and use RM with Safety Net Plus. The filtering is reliable.
