KCOM List 50 Bricknell Avenue Streets for their Fibre Broadband Rollout

Thursday, July 7th, 2016 (3:45 pm) - Score 434

Hull telecoms operator KCOM has today announced the next batch of roll-out locations for their new “Lightstream” fibre optic (FTTP/C) broadband network. Overall 5,000 properties in the Bricknell Avenue area and a similar number in Hedon and Preston should be covered by the end of 2016.

Apparently the first to benefit will be 3,200 residents in Bricknell Avenue, who should be able to order the service from 20th July, with the rest following in September and October 2016. Meanwhile 600 premises in Hedon and Preston will be ready by the start of August and the remainder between September and December 2016.

Sue Helmont, KCOMs Director of Consumer Services, said:

“In the current phase of our roll-out we’re taking Lightstream to thousands of properties where broadband speeds are slower than average because of the distance to the telephone exchange they’re served by. This is the case in the Bricknell Avenue area of the city and we’re delighted to give customers there the opportunity to go superfast.

We’re doing all we can to make superfast broadband available to as many customers as possible as quickly as possible. The acceleration of our plans to make Lightstream available right across our network means that throughout this year we’ll be connecting a new household to Lightstream every half an hour.”

The vast majority of KCOM’s roll-out, which is due to complete by December 2017, is being catered for via their 250Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) network that delivers a pure fibre optic line directly to your home.

Elsewhere around 8% (12,000 premises) of their planned roll-out to 150,000 premises will be catered for via the slower ‘up to’ 75Mbps Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) service.

So far the operator’s roll-out has already covered 78,000 premises, with 26,000 connected including 3,500 businesses (33.33% take-up), and by completion KCOM’s total capital investment in installing fibre will have reached approximately £60 million.
