Frequently Asked Questions

Will my speed increase?

In our experience schools actually have their broadband speeds restricted by their existing broadband provider. For example, a BANES school was capped at 4Mb by the incumbent provider, however the local exchange allowed for an 80Mb connection.

Will our school lose its broadband funding and have to pay more?

No. Funding will still be available to the school even where the schools DSG funding is taken at source.

The remaining DSG funding is available to be spent elsewhere.

What level of savings could a school make?

Potential savings will differ depending on the size of the school and type of connection required. 

Many forward thinking schools and academies have already benefited financially by switching their broadband supply to Soltech IT and have made significant savings ranging from a few hundred pounds, to several thousands of pounds. 

Our schools specialists can assist the schools bursar or business manager in providing an exact figure.

As a school we are told we can not move away from our present provider due to filtering. 

Our broadband content filtering and logging solutions not only meet LEA standards, they surpass them, ensuring schools are safe for pupils, teachers and other members of staff.

With a managed approach to filtering schools can carefully and confidently comply with DfE guidelines and Ofsted inspections.

Our school has been told that switching broadband providers will lead to other schools within our local authority having to pay more?

This is just another cost saving reason to make the change as other schools have already switched broadband suppliers.

"Having had our broadband connection provided by the LEA for years we were a little apprehensive to go ahead with another provider - we needn't have worried. The free web content filtering is super and so easy to use - compared to our previous one which we had no control over. The complete package we have choosen has given us 10Mb to ourselves (previously shared with other schools in the area) and is half the price we were paying. What more can one ask for?"
