Philosophy


Lighter Networks was formed by a group of people with similar beliefs and ethics when it comes to IT support. We firmly believe in providing solutions which do not require constant expensive upgrades and repairs.

We believe in using the best suited tool for the job, meaning we are not tied to any specific software or hardware. This results in the best system for your business needs.

We are all experienced in dealing with small to medium business and realise that their needs for IT and support are very different from that of larger companies.

Smaller companies often have no need for a full time team IT professional, but still require some support from someone who knows how their system works. We try to achieve this by working with your IT infrastructure in a friendly and personal way.
