Carter Community School in Dorset started out as a phone system customer and later we supercharged their connectivity too. We initially installed a Splicecom IP phone system, to run on SIP trunks over their existing 100Mb/s Leased Line connection. The SIP Trunks enable the school to save money and future-proof their telephony. The rental costs for SIP trunks are typically 50% less than ISDN so the school are taking advantage of significant monthly savings by switching to SIP.

More recently, they realised they required more bandwidth as they are moving more services to the cloud. Despite being in contract with their current provider, they reached out to us for pricing for a connection with more bandwidth. We quoted a 200Mb/s on 1Gb/s bearer and were able to save them a considerable amount of money. So they decided to go ahead with our connection.

Connectivity is critical for the school

Jamie Stevens, Carter Community School’s Network Manager wanted to add a FTTC circuit as a failover to their main connection. This means that in the event of any disruption or an outage, their connection seamlessly moves over to the backup line and leave the school virtually unaffected.

Jamie says, “Giganet has been incredibly professional all the way through the project and have provided fantastic ongoing support. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future and building a strong business relationship.”
