Internet Filtering (Lightspeed Systems)

About the Service

What is it?

Our Internet Filtering (Lightspeed Systems) service is a centrally hosted filtering service, enabling safe web access for schools.

Why do I need it?

It provides you with the flexibility to locally manage and control access to websites. The service provides the following functionality for schools:

  • Education focused web filtering.
  • Ability to filter based on IP address ranges or by using an external directory such as your School's active directory domain.
  • Local control to allow your School to manage which websites it wishes to allow or block.

What are the benefits?

  • Schools have the ability to implement granular filtering based on individual classroom or user needs, removing dependence on BT Lancashire Services to block / unblock individual websites for individual school requests.
  • Schools do not require any filtering equipment to be installed in school with this service
  • Assists schools in fulfilling their safeguarding duties
