As our home city, Bradford was the first place in the UK to receive ultrafast DarkLight connectivity, with the network going live back in early 2016. Since then, we've reached a huge number of great local businesses with a network spanning practically the entire city.
Leeds was the second city to receive DarkLight connectivity, and as a digitally-focused area, the service has really taken off, with many of our first DarkLight customers located in the city. Our network spans a huge area of Leeds and the surrounding areas - click through to see more.
One of the first cities our DarkLight expansion reached, Sheffield's speeding up with DarkLight, as our network runs a full 110 KM across the city and nearby. We're developing our footprint across the Steel City month on month, bringing in new, ultrafast possibilities.
Following a recent expansion to our Leeds DarkLight network, we're now able to provide DarkLight to schools and businesses across Wakefield. With Internet speeds in Wakefield typically being some of the slowest in the UK, we're proud to be speeding the area up with world-class DarkLight connectivity.
The latest DarkLight city to go live, Northampton's network launched in late 2017, with the first couple of connections going live in November. Our Northampton network is one of our most widely-spanning ones, providing full coverage for the majority of the city centre, while spanning to the outskirts.
As part of our expanded Sheffield DarkLight network, we've recently launched DarkLight in Doncaster. Our network stretches directly from Sheffield to Doncaster, covering a wide part of both areas and reaching hundreds of local businesses and schools.
Recently launched, our Rotherham network runs alongside the River Don, reaching a potentially huge number of local schools and businesses across Rotherham. Covering a full 27 KM of the town, our network crosses through most major areas in Rotherham.
As part of our ongoing DarkLight rollout, we're preparing to launch DarkLight across the Calderdale region, spanning across Halifax and the surrounding area! Right now, DarkLight's ready to order across Calderdale, and we expect to be going live shortly - stay tuned for more information.
