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.

By wearing a poppy, you aren’t just remembering the fallen: you’re supporting a new generation of veterans and Service personnel that need our support."Founding Director Richard Sheppard commented, "The 11th November is a day close to all our hearts and we are proud to support The Poppy Appeal and remember those who have served our country, and those who have lost their lives."
As an accredited Living Wage employer, we are thrilled to welcomes the increase in UK and London rates announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week (November 5th-11th 2017).
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said:
Greggs plc took up the charge and established the first ‘Greggs’ breakfast club. The Greggs Foundation now oversees over 430 clubs, providing a nutritious breakfast to over 26,000 school children each day, over 5 million each year!!!
The Greggs Foundation receives funding from a range of partners, often private sector companies including their major partner, Greggs plc.
Greggs Foundation uses the money to support breakfast clubs through an initial start up grant for equipment such as chest freezers to store food items or toys and activities for the club. They also make a payment each term towards other food items and Greggs plc donates bread from the nearest shop.
This approach tends to be very well received by our breakfast club schools, many of whom have worked in partnership with Greggs for over fifteen years. Schools tell us that they like the flexibility of the model, allowing them to tailor their club to suit the needs of the children that attend.The average club costs just £2,000 to set up and run for a year.
