OFTEL's recommendations to telecommunications industry

28th February 1997 at 00:00
For schools Ensure high-speed lines (sometimes called ISDN) are available to all schools; introduce more affordable charges for telecommunications links, taking the need of primary schools into account; where possible develop flat-rate charges allowing unlimited usage.

For schools, libraries and FE colleges Actively promote benefits of external telecommunications links; develop charges which are predictable and controllable; allow schools, colleges and libraries to buy network connections separately from services; work with software producers, equipment manufacturers and others to ensure schools, colleges and libraries have the range of user-friendly services they need.

For schools, colleges and libraries The telecommunications industry should initiate discussions with representatives of both sectors to better understand their requirements.
