Launched in 2007, PSBA connects public sector organisations in the country to a private secure Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Wide Area Network (WAN). PSBA is Welsh Government-funded and delivered by BT.
PSBA enables local health boards, local authorities, higher and further education institutions, schools, emergency services and other public sector organisations in Wales to deliver efficient services to citizens by utilising innovative, cost-effective, resilient network services that drive productivity.
We help to keep students and young people safe online with effective web filtering for education. We enable over 100 public service organisations to overcome logistical and organisational barriers with a safe, secure roaming service that helps public sector workers to get the job done – regardless of the distance from their home base – at almost 5,000 public sector sites across Wales. We have connected 640 GP surgeries to our network, helping to modernise and improve the IT infrastructure at their practices.
