Discover totally flexible, future-proof connectivity

While DarkLight stands out by providing ultrafast Internet connectivity to schools and businesses across the UK, it also provides a number of practically unique features designed to make it the single most advanced Internet connectivity option on the market. Most critically, DarkLight is completely future-proofed. It's the last Internet connection you'll ever need to install, because it lets you change the speed you're receiving at practically any point, ensuring that you always get the level of performance your organisation needs.

There's also another level of flexibility with DarkLight. While you can change your connection at any time, that doesn't have to be a permanent change. You can upgrade your connection speed temporarily, at practically any time - just get in touch with your personal account manager to discuss your requirements and get everything set up.

This complete flexibility means that you can easily accommodate for any changes to your bandwidth requirements - hosting a major event? Temporarily bringing in a number of workers? DarkLight makes it easy to adjust your connectivity. Read on to find out more about how DarkLight's flexibility works, or get in touch with our team at 0345 145 1234 to discuss your requirements!
