Lightspeed Systems is an all-in-one program that allows schools and other educational institutions to manage, monitor, archive and filter Internet content deemed inappropriate. Usually, websites that are blocked include social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, as well as websites that take too much bandwidth or display sexual or violent content. Unfortunately, the Lightspeed Systems software may sometimes block benign websites with useful content. Luckily, you may bypass a Lightspeed Systems Internet filter by browsing the Internet through a proxy website.
