A pioneer of internet connectivity

We spoke to Exa’s newly-appointed Marketing Assistant Rebecca Hamer about the company’™s latest developments

Exa Networks has provided schools with fast, reliable and secure internet connectivity for over a decade.

As a pioneer in the field of internet connectivity and content filtering to schools, Exa Networks has grown to become one of the largest independent providers to educational organisations in the UK. We currently look after over 10% of schools nationwide, providing services from connectivity and email right through to complete packages.

We are continuously developing, and in January this year we were able to show potential customers the new products we have in the pipeline at the BETT Show.

With an awards ceremony hosted by Jo Brand, the BETT Show celebrates the creativity and innovation of technology for education – so it’s a brilliant event for Exa. This year we highlighted our new, centralised, customer experience platform which combines our various panels into one, easy-to-use space. We also demonstrated the now internationally available, multilingual, SurfProtect Cloud – as well as the new SurfProtect interface due to be rolled out in early Q2.

Exa is identifiable in its field by its provision to both schools and businesses; the award-winning internet connection options that we provide to educational organisations are exactly the same as those we supply to blue chip corporations. Our connectivity services cover the full range of options available in the UK today – from Broadband to multi-gigabit leased lines. All connections are supplied with our content filtering service, SurfProtect, inclusive at no extra cost.

The average annual saving for an Exa primary school is £4,000, with an increase of up to ten times in internet speed, whilst the average Exa secondary school saves £11,000 and receives up to eight times their previous internet speed. These cost savings, combined with our improved service provision and award-winning customer care, make Exa Education the supplier of some of the best internet connectivity packages on the market.
