Coconnect provide a complete service from pre-sales & technical support. Services is always speedy and technical support team have an incredible wealth of knowledge.
"When our old provider closed down with very short notice, Coconnect pulled out all the stops to make sure we were up and running on a brand new connection with an on-site filter with zero downtime. They listened to what we needed, and provided expert advice, customer service, and after sales support. They’re absolutely brilliant and I would recommend them every time."
"Knowledgeable, friendly, pro-active and always ready to help, with an understanding of the particular needs of education, Coconnect have provided a stable safe infrastructure which we can rely on."
"We are moving all of our broadband from local county council to Coconnect, but to date I could not be happier. Our account is managed by one of the directors; he is proactive, helpful, and always available to answer any of my questions whenever I call/email. We are transitioning 8 schools and seem to be on track to complete as planned! I would not hesitate in recommending them to other schools."
