The Importance Of Getting Broadband Contract Renewals Right

It is more important than ever that schools review their Broadband requirements and contracts to ensure suitability and best value.

Over the past 18 months we have seen increased demands placed on School Broadband connections as a result of COVID-19.  Remote working of staff and students coupled with video calls have created the perfect storm, eating away at valuable bandwidth, resulting in slower connection speeds.

The need for increased bandwidth will continue to grow over the coming years as more services and software move to the Cloud and as the BT Network Switch Off looms ever closer. All of this means that you should review your requirements as soon as possible!

Please note:

If your Broadband contract renewal is due in March / April 2022 you need to act now!

Some highspeed broadband connections (leased lines) can take 3 to 4 months to be installed, therefore orders will need to be placed with your broadband provider before the Christmas holidays.

 Don’t make the typical Broadband procurement mistake

Your Broadband, Firewall and Web Filtering is critical to the smooth operation of your school, for teaching and keeping children safe online. Many School Business Leaders lack knowledge in this area, so tend to stick with the Local Authority or an incumbent provider through fear of making a bad decision.

As a result, most schools overpay for Firewall and Web Filtering solutions that are unsuitable.
