DarkLight Ultrafast Connectivity Availability

DarkLight is based on a unique dark fibre network, which lets us deliver unmatched flexibility and ultrafast performance. However, that means we're only able to provide DarkLight in some areas, though we're working to expand our network, adding new cities. We've put together this page to show you exactly where DarkLight is available right now.

We've designed DarkLight to be the very last Internet connection you'll ever need to install, delivering totally future-proofed performance at all times. Speeds start at a symmetrical 300 Mbps, with every line able to support a full 10 Gbps speed. Prices start at £299 + VAT a month for 300 Mbps - get in touch with our team today at 0345 145 1234 to find out more about DarkLight!
