Hull is fast. Superfast, by anybody’s standards.
KCOM’S Lightstream package offers full fibre broadband to businesses and homes throughout the city, providing first-class service and speeds to businesses, and unmatched remote working conditions to Hull-based employees.
And this superfast city is showing no sign of slowing down – in fact it’s only getting quicker. Further superfast networks from companies such as Connexion, MS3 and Grain, are currently being installed city-wide, ensuring that Hull is the fastest, most secure and best connected city in the country.
In 2021 a report from London Tech Week and the UK Tech Cluster Group’s 12 Clusters of Tech series found that 100% of Hull’s businesses and homes have access to ultrafast broadband - a claim no other city in the UK could make. In fact, only 8% of the rest of the UK had access to similar digital infrastructure.
In September last year, KCOM announced plans to invest a further £100m across Hull, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to give the region the fastest, future-proofed and most accessible full fibre broadband network in the UK.
