THE CHALLENGE

With their consistent growth each year, St Peter’s College now provide education from years 7-12 and host over 1600 students over two campuses, with the scope to open a 3rd campus.

Their focus on delivering facilities to cater for the 21st Century Learner means that St Peter’s College can’t afford to have a disruption to their internet, they need something reliable, secure and capable.

“Our original connection was stable but it lacked the performance that we needed to achieve what the school was doing and the way the school was going.

At the same time the layout of computers in our schools was changing from something that was very controlled to a BYOD environment, and the nature of BYOD is that it requires more bandwidth.

We’re at that technological age now where if the internet shuts down we almost need to shut the school down.”
– Stephen Bloomer, Network Manager of St Peter’s College.

THE SOLUTION

  • 1000Mbps Ethernet over Fibre

“We had heard of Broadband Solutions before from other schools, and the feedback was always extremely positive.

When we approached Broadband Solutions, they were immediately helpful and able to accommodate exactly what we needed. They had a thorough understanding of School requirements and were able to provide a suitable solution that benefited us. I want a simple, robust solution that lives with me for a while, that I don’t need to reprogram or rethink, and Broadband Solutions provide that.”
