Schools Broadband Secures Hampshire Future Network Contract

Thursday, Jan 20th, 2022 (8:13 am) - Score 576

A specialist ISP for the UK education market, Schools Broadband (Talk Straight Ltd.), has secured a new 4-year framework contract from the Hampshire County Council (HCC) – this will see them supply Managed Internet Access Services for Schools, Academies and Educational Establishments in the county.

The new Hampshire Future Network for Schools (FN4S) contract, which replaces the current HPSN2 framework that is due to expire on 31st December 2022, will see the ISP offer Wide Area Networks (WAN) using Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to allow for secure site-to-site connectivity between schools and the county council.

Remote access services will also be available for staff working away from the office and the provider will also offer cloud-hosted firewalling, as well as “enhanced security“, together with hosted web filtering (i.e. blocking “harmful” online content), reporting and online-safeguarding services.

David Tindall, CEO of Talk Straight, said:

“As a market leader in delivering Wide Area Networks (WAN), Internet, e-safety and security solutions to the education sector, we’re delighted to be working with Hampshire Council to deliver FN4S.

Hampshire will be another council joining the many already using our award-winning education specific platform.

We are thrilled to be able to offer world-leading services to Hampshire Schools at an affordable price.”

The provider, which employs over 50 people,  currently serves over 2,000 schools and 250 Multi Academy Trusts across the UK.
