Technology Transforming the Education Market
Technology has transformed the Education environment. Top quality network access as a facilitatator of online learning is recognised as essential in supporting pupil attainment, especially as we've seen major restructures throughout the sector over time, with revised funding and governance arrangements programmes such as Free Schools and Academies.
Recent changes to the funding arrangements for Internet Services such as some Government fundings in the form of grants to subsidise broadband provided by Local Authorities, have ceased and created new risks for Schools and Local Authorities.
Senior Education professionals need to know that their supplier can provide premium connectivity with unrivalled support, together with enough flexibility and scalability to meet future requirements without incurring unnecessary expenditure and disruption, either as part of their Local Authorities Public Sector Network or directly contracted.
Updata provides connectivity to over 12% of Schools in England and Wales, and also provides high quality IP connectivity to 3rd level institutions. Our Education solutions are designed to maximise the potential of learning platforms and Virtual Learning Environment's by providing high bandwidth connections as well as advanced services including content filtering, secure hosted email and network storage.
