Posted by Rebecca Paddick | July 22, 2014 | Events

The company was presented with the Best Business Use of Cloud award for their Schools Broadband hosted infrastructure which gives schools a fast, secure internet connection with customisable content filtering. The company was also selected as a finalist in the Internet Safety and Security category, beating over 20 companies to make it into the final 5 alongside Sky and TalkTalk.

The ISPA (Internet Service Providers’ Association) Awards were launched in 1999 and are the longest established and most respected awards in the internet industry. The awards herald the best of the industry and celebrate innovation and best practice. 

Company Director, David Tindall said: “We are very proud to have been recognised as leaders in the provision of internet services to education. The award reflects the hard work and dedication of everyone in the company in delivering an exceptional system that gives schools industry-leading security and content filtering at an affordable price.”

Founded in 2007, Talk Straight delivers broadband and internet services to hundreds of schools across the UK, giving schools a fast and reliable alternative to a local authority internet connection.

Their school broadband service includes the installation of a broadband/leased line connection as well as industry leading security from Fortinet and flexible content filtering from Lightspeed Systems, hosted in their cloud environment. The company also provides Mobile Device Management as well as VoIP telephony and wireless.
