We all know that school budgets have hit hard times. With government funding through the Harnessing Technology Grant being cut and BECTA no longer around to help schools make their technology procurement decisions, how do you save money on your broadband provision when pricing looks set to soar?
Before renewing your existing contract, download our free broadband buying guide that includes everything you need to know to make a sound, well-informed purchase.
We've included questions to ask providers when researching a purchase, checklists, a glossary of technical terms and examples of schools who've made the switch and saved thousands. Just like The Howard School in Kent, who switched their broadband provision and now receive three times the bandwidth and save over £500 a year.
This is one of the most sensible and significant upgrades the school has ever made." - Matt Pyrke, Director of ICT & E-Learning, The Howard School
Since writing the "dramatically reduce the cost of your Internet connection" article earlier this year, we've seen unprecedented demand for broadband services and this is set to increase further as schools quite rightly look for efficiencies and question the existing services they receive (I've done the same with my home broadband recently and halved the monthly cost without compromising service).
P.S. It's worth noting that switching supplier often takes 90 days regardless of who you switch to, so make sure you're prepared well in advance of your contract end date. If you're ready to get comparative quotes, you can request a free no-obligation quote now.
