William O'Reilly

Lumen Christi MAC

"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."

Rich Sayles

Newman School

"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."

Martin Robson

Cumbria Education Trust

"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."
