Darklight for Schools

Most schools in the UK have seen internet usage ramp up significantly over the last few years as students and teachers start to use tablets, computers and phones to get the most out of learning. Schools now need fast internet connections to cope with the ever increasing use of online resources for classroom teaching and student-directed learning.

Despite the need for high quality connections, many schools are being let down by their internet connections. High costs, low speeds and unreliable connections are letting students and teachers across the country down. Here at FGS, we’re dedicated to giving schools the high quality internet connections that they need, so we’ve designed DarkLight®, a system built for world-class performance.

Our new DarkLight internet connections are designed to give schools top-quality internet speeds at a far lower cost than average connections. With connections from 100 Mbps to gigabit-plus, DarkLight will save your school money while delivering incredibly fast internet.
