Lawnswood School in Leeds, upgraded to a DarkLight connection as it proved to be the next logical choice. As technology is being encouraged more and more in schools and incorporated into lessons other than ICT or Computer Science, reliable fast connectivity is becoming more important day by day.
Students are using the internet to carry out research rather than textbooks, and many exams are now being conducted online, meaning a drop in connection has serious repercussions.
With DarkLight connectivity, Lawnswood School's teachers and students are prepared with all the bandwidth they may require in the future.
DarkLight delivers ultrafast, flexible performance, ensuring schools always have access to the level of connectivity they need, now and in the years to come, with world-class 10 Gbps speeds available on every line.
DarkLight is designed to hugely cut down costs, making ultrafast Internet connectivity more accessible for education than ever before, while ensuring that schools get the best possible results out of their budget.
DarkLight lines start off at an ultrafast 300 Mbps, while every line is set up to support world-class 10 Gbps performance - all at a lower-than-average cost.
Once a DarkLight line is installed, you'll never have to install a new line. We let users change their speed at practically any time, always getting the service they're looking for.
DarkLight prices start at just £299 + VAT a month (£3588 + VAT annually) for 300 Mbps performance, while gigabit connectivity costs just £5988 + VAT a year - far cheaper than practically any other school Internet option.
