MS3 Halfway to Completion of New Fibre Optic Broadband Network in Hull UK

MS3 Communications, an independent telecoms infrastructure developer, has confirmed that Phase 1 of their project to lay a new 116km long stretch of fibre optic cable around Hull (Yorkshire, UK), which will connect local businesses to ultra-fast broadband, is now “halfway to completion“.

According to Mid-Wales based company Welch Civils, which won a £5.5m contract to hook-up the “first 50km” of MS3’s network in March 2012 (here), work on the new fibre has so far taken place in Whitefriargate, North Road and Carr Lane. As a result several businesses on phase 1 of the network have already started to sign-up for internet services from MS3.

Jonathan Searby, MD of local firm JS Power, said:

We are looking forward to upgrading our ADSL line to fibre with MS3, our business is dependent on having a stable and reliable connection. At times our current connection has been unusable and we simply needed something better, MS3’s pricing is very competitive which made it an easy decision to switch.”

Tony Hales, MS3′s Managing Director, added:

Our sales team have been out knocking on doors recently and the feedback we’ve had has been staggering. There is a clear desire for businesses in this city to have a choice of internet provider and that has been reflected in the number of sales we’ve already made.”

The new network should provide competition for Hull’s incumbent telecoms firm, KC, which back in March 2012 told ISPreview.co.uk that the development was, “good for local businesses as it means they’ll now also have even more choice in provider“. But KC’s Commercial and Finance Director, Sean Royce, was quick to add that it too was making, “a significant investment in our KC Lightstream fibre broadband services” in order to provide local homes and businesses with “the fastest broadband network in the UK“.

MS3’s new network is now officially set to go live in October 2012 and work has already started on planning for the development of Phase 2, which will cover areas around the city including East Hull and North Hull. Phase 2 is expected to commence during Q4-2012.
