Kent Schools Update

Published 8 December 2023

Further to our recent announcement regarding Cantium withdrawing from delivering Schools Connectivity services (see here) to schools, Medway Council have confirmed that they would be able to continue providing a range of KPSN services via their Medway Grid for Learning service (details here).

Whilst providing a range of bespoke services developed and supported by the Medway team, the advantage to your school or organisation is that it ensures that you will continue to have access to the KPSN services that have supported your Cantium Schools Broadband services.  This will make switching between providers very simple with minimal disruption to your schools KPSN connection with no need for new circuit installs or uncertain delivery dates.

Medway Council and KPSN will work together to ensure a simple process will transfer your services from Cantium to Medway Council as both organisations are members of the KPSN.

If you wish to take advantage of this relationship between KPSN and Medway Council then please contact the MGfL team ASAP at to register your interest.  They will be able to discuss their range of Schools Services and any questions that you may have regarding the switch process together with any actions or questions you may have to undertake to complete the switch.
