The company has chosen schools technology event The BETT show in London for the national launch of Superfast Schools to over 350,000 delegates.

Director, Josh Hosking, said: “When we started offering our internet packages to schools we had no idea where it would lead.

“The response was incredible and having spent the second half of 2013 rolling the service out across Cornwall we have decided to offer it nationally in 2014.”

Superfast Schools won Gold at the recent Computer Security Awards and was put together with internet filtering company MXSweep.

ICT4 worked with local branding and marketing company MPAD to develop a new brand identity, logo and stand designs for the show that takes place between January 22 and 25 at ExCel in London.

Glyn Pascoe, managing director for iCT4, added: “We’re really pleased with the new brand and we have every confidence in the product.

“Schools across the UK are crying out for better Internet speeds and online safety is of paramount importance so we are confident that the BETT Show will be a great springboard for Superfast Schools.”
