KCOM Target Full Fibre for 10,000 North Lincolnshire Premises

UK ISP KCOM, which is investing a further £100m to extend the availability of their 1Gbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network, have today confirmed the next phase of their expansion. This will see them cross the Humber Bridge to cover 10,000 properties in North Lincolnshire for the first time.

The announcement won’t come as much of a surprise to our readers because a rival operator, InternetTY, has already revealed that they were rubbing up against engineers from KCOM in North Lincolnshire, which were overbuilding some of their own full fibre network in the town of Barton-Upon-Humber (here).

Officially though KCOM has so far restricted their expansion activity to East Yorkshire and thus kept north of the Humber, but all that has now changed. As expected, the first locations to be targeted in North Lincs will be in the large towns of Barton-Upon-Humber and Brigg.

On top of that the operator has also signalled its willingness to build full fibre infrastructure in smaller communities, such as Barrow Upon Humber and Goxhill, provided “there is demonstrable demand.”

Dale Raneberg, KCOM CEO, said:

“I’m delighted to announce that the next phase of our ambitious expansion plan will bring the benefits of full fibre broadband to North Lincolnshire homes for the very first time.

As a local business with deep roots in the region, reaching the short distance across the Humber was an obvious choice for KCOM when we were looking for areas to expand our award-winning network.”

The operator said they would announce further North Lincolnshire destinations later this year.

    Good to see KCOM going over the Humber they have for too long stuck to there traditional footprint

    It will be interesting to see how they get on with the competition that’s in place. Not heard anything about the national business for sometime, I wonder what the plans are for them now Macquarie have been the owners for sometime.

    Barton and Brigg are not large towns. Brigg would be a large village.
