As a North Somerset school you may well have noticed that your current broadband service costs will noticeably increase from April.
At Soltech IT we offer an alternative, schools based broadband solution that can save schools thousands of pounds.
Already a large proportion of North Somerset schools are realising significant savings and improved broadband speeds using EXA broadband via local reseller Soltech IT Ltd .
It's not just limited to North Somerset schools, schools throughout Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset have also been quick to make the switch to schools broadband with Soltech IT.
What are the costs?
As an example, EXA broadband via Soltech IT costs £2450 per annum for a 20Mb broadband connection, which in a lot of cases can represent a two or threefold saving for your school.
Are these savings genuine?
Our experience shows us that in most cases there are savings to be made. We are always happy to provide a school with a FREE quotation so you can decide for yourself.
In recent weeks, a North Somerset school, to whom we provide EXA broadband decided to carry out a full budgeting review, which included looking at the costs of broadband.
The school received a competitive quotation from a well known provider for a 10Mb connection costing more than £6,000 per annum.
In this instance, the school stuck with EXA broadband through Soltech IT as the school was paying considerably less at just over £2,000 per annum for a 14Mb broadband connection
As you can see it's not just savings that can be made, speeds can increase as well.
Is it the same service?
Yes, it is the same service. Although, the level of support and response times can be significantly quicker with Soltech IT / EXA
Does EXA offer secure content filtering for schools?
Yes, it does.
Please contact us today if your school would like to review the its broadband costs and receive an alternative free quotation.

"We have learnt that when children suffer from long-term illness, their corresponding isolation from friends makes it harder for them to recover and to come back to school when they feel better. We are also aware that developing speech and social skills is just as important as following the curriculum. When they are not a part of the social scene, children miss out on important learning through play and interaction.At No Isolation, the purpose of our technology is to help people alleviate the feeling of loneliness. We want to develop tools for the groups that need more than generic solutions. AV1 helps children with long-term illness to stay in touch with their friends, keep up with their education, and secure that crucial link to everyday life."
This fantastic concept's primary goal is to reduce loneliness amongst children suffering from long term health issues, however, the idea can only be a positive for their education and social skills. The AV-1 robot, which is controlled by the child through an app, allows the child to join in from a hospital bed or sofa at home. The robot acts as the 'eyes, ears and voice' of the child, with a blinking light ti signal when they want to say something and the ability to turn 360' to see and speak to the whole class.
