Back-up Internet Connections
About the Service
Our Back-up Internet Connection service provides continuity in the event of a failure of your main internet connection. A variety of different bandwidth options are available including our Superfast Broadband for Schools, radio or fibre connections. Each provides a second connection as a back-up to your school's main broadband connection. This service, similar to our Broadband service, is offered as a managed service with full support.
Many of the services schools use on a daily basis are moving to cloud and online solutions. The provision of a backup link ensures schools can access these in the event of primary link failure.
A Back-up Internet Connection provides peace of mind and ensures the schools internet connectivity. Therefore access to online resources continues to run in the event of a failure to the schools primary internet connection
What are the benefits?
• Reduction in potential downtime if the school's main internet connection fails.
• Increased availability of your school's critical systems that use the internet.
• Options to add increasing levels of resilience and reductions to potential single point of failure, subject to budget available.

Our back-up connections are offered at a range of bandwidths, like the main connections that we offer. (If you choose a lower speed than your main feed, your service may be degraded while running on the back-up connection compared to normal operation.)
