Where’s our internet kept?

A teacher told me recently that a child in her class asked where the school’s internet was kept. It’s a great question. And very relevant to the new computing curriculum‘s network strand. It reminded me that many schools perhaps aren’t aware of exactly who is providing their broadband or whether better options are available. The good news is that there are.

You don’t have to be tied into lengthy and expensive broadband contracts with your local authority or suffer frustratingly slow speeds. And you don’t have to be left in the lurch if your local authority suddenly decides to cease its provision; something which is currently happening in various southern regions.

At Turn IT On we have provided over 200 schools with broadband as part of our complete range of ICT services. We are partners with Exa Networks, the UK’s leading ISP for education. Together we have project-managed the switchover for schools that opted to move away from their local authority’s provision. In most cases we have saved schools money and improved their line speeds. We also provide on-going, remote support from our helpdesk for those moments when you just need to speak to a real person to get the issue sorted out.

We can help save you time and money ahead of this year’s school budget by connecting your school for less. This means you and your staff have more time to concentrate on the important things, like explaining abstract concepts to inquisitive six-year-olds.

PS. If you want to contact one of our schools to get their take on the switchover process: contact David Powles on 07921 675323 or david.powles@turniton.co.uk and he will gladly provide you with a list.
