Future proofing your Internet with DarkLight

Find out more about DarkLight™ from Exa Networks

Here at Exa Networks, we’re extremely excited about the launch of our DarkLight, Next Generation Access, internet connection in Bradford and Leeds. DarkLight was designed to completely revolutionise the way that internet connections work, offering a truly future-proofed option for businesses and schools. We’ve written up this page to show you just how and why DarkLight is a step ahead of the competition.

First, there’s two basic facts to consider.

1. Required internet connection speeds keep getting higher, particularly for businesses and schools. It’s estimated that connection speeds increase by around 50% every year, with a host of necessary utilities requiring faster connections than ever before, from educational video streaming on Youtube to business VoIP calling with Skype.

2. When you upgrade your internet connection, most of the cost comes from construction. Depending on the scale of a project, installation costs can vary from 60 to 80% of total cost - a cost that keeps on increasing whenever your connection needs an upgrade.

Exa’s DarkLight was designed to cut the cost of installation to a minimum by giving your business or school a completely future proofed internet connection. When you purchase a DarkLight connection, our standard installation provides you with all the groundwork for future upgrades without the need to re-visit the infrastructure.

While there’s plenty of technical explanations on the back end, this large-scale optic fibre installation has one simple effect. You can upgrade your internet connection speed whenever you want, without having to pay for an additional installation.

Using DarkLight, any requests for an increase in bandwidth can be administered at the touch of a button, and because there are no physical changes to make, your connection can be upgraded instantly, hugely cutting the time it takes to upgrade a traditional connection; businesses don’t have to worry about any disruptions to office work during installation, while schools can upgrade their speed during term time rather than waiting for holidays.

At Exa Networks, we set ourselves apart from the competition by offering high-speed, completely reliable connections that actually deliver the speeds we advertise. DarkLight offers initial bandwidth speeds starting at 100 Mbps, with a practically unlimited scope for upgrades. Because DarkLight is symmetrical, you receive the same upload as download speed, while uncontended lines ensure that connection speed is unaffected by other users in the area.

Exa DarkLight has been designed from the ground up to give you the last internet connection that you’ll ever need for your business or school, with constant scope for connection speed improvement. With DarkLight rolling out in Bradford and Leeds, schools and businesses in the area can contact us today on 0345 145 1234 to start planning an upgrade to DarkLight.
