UK ISP Virgin Media Business has today signed a new multi-year public sector contract with Falkirk Council in Scotland, which among other things will see additional bandwidth and WiFi improvements (coverage, speed and security) being supplied to 58 local schools.

Under the deal VMB say they will deliver new wireless networks in all the council’s 58 primary, secondary and additional support schools, “providing more bandwidth” to help them cope with the additional data traffic that will be generated by 18,000 new iPads given to students through the council’s Connected Falkirk project.

The ISP will also provide safe and secure solutions for the schools, ensuring educators can help protect students from “unsuitable content“, as well as providing a cloud management platform that gives the council greater flexibility in managing their connectivity. The dedicated Wi-Fi and connectivity provided through the contract also aims to ensure equity of access in all Falkirk Council schools.

Martin McFadyen, Head of Public Sector at VMB, said:

“We are proud that our cutting-edge technology will help Falkirk Council safeguard against network issues today, while also creating a digital learning environment fit for the future.

With our support, thousands of children across the Falkirk area will be able to safely and securely access reliable connections that support their learning and help them build the digital skills they need to thrive in future.

Over the next five years, Connected Falkirk will transform learning and teaching across all schools in the Falkirk area, helping to prepare children and young people to live, learn and work in a truly digital age.”

End.

    I don’t think it’s a good idea to install foreign owned infrastructure into schools.

    Hope they get better service than I have had after 3 months with them. Poor WiFi, constant drop outs and the modem/router is absolutely rubbish. I have had to have 2 replaced already.
