ISP KCOM Discounts Broadband in New Full Fibre Build Areas

Hull-based UK ISP KCOM, which serves broadband and phone users across their network in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, has launched a new “January Sale” that discounts selected Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) prices by up to 26%. The catch is that you have to be within one of their new network extension areas.

The operator is currently in the process of investing a further £100m to extend the availability of their 1Gbps full fibre broadband network beyond their original patch in Hull and as such the new discounts are being focused upon those areas – including new customers in Driffield, Goole, Pocklington, Howden, Nafferton, Market Weighton, Hornsea, Withernsea, North Lincolnshire and Bridlington.

As part of that new subscribers can expect to receive both a FREE connection (saving £25) and the first month of service will also be FREE. At least one of their packages has also been given a reduced monthly rental, which for example means that their 200Mbps services is currently £34 a month for 12 months (£46 a month thereafter).

The move makes sense as KCOM has to be more competitive, particularly as they’re now building into areas where rival FTTP services from Openreach (BT), InternetTY and others may in some cases already exist. However, the new discount will only be available to order until 29th January 2021.

    Wonder if anyone has any info, can see KCOM doing street works in part of Selby (Residential Streets) but can’t see the town in any literature of upcoming towns? Given Selby is in NYCC area, and on the list of Openreach FTTP.

    NYCC seems a little out of the area for them, traditionally Hull/East Yorkshire.

    1. Liam says:

      KCOM have started to run Google ads titled ‘real fibre in Selby soon!’ which link through to pages for you to register interest in the service.
      Hadn’t noticed KCOM doing street works in the town, but I had noticed engineers working on fibre in parts of the town that I hadn’t even realised had any kind of fibre.

    2. Elliot S says:

      That was where I saw it, Openreach due to build out FTTP and NYNET have built oout thier FTTP core in the town. (Wonder if KCOM are using some of that to build out)

      Yeah over the other side of the Canal theres a sub contractor doing a fair amount of work.

      Can see it on the roadworks site but only limited to that area, cant see them starting outside that area yet, however making quote goo progress from what I can see.

      Just cant see it actually listed ont he KCOM site to know what post codes are covered.

      I have seen some fibre work taking place on the Charles Street area. Wasn’t close enough to the vans to say for sure, but the logo was orange in colour, so possibly KCOM.
      Either way, doing fibre work on Charles Street is interesting. There are no schools/council buildings nearby so there’s no obvious reason for NYNET to have been building out in that location.
      They were using the existing ducts, rather than digging in new infrastructure.

    4. Mark says:

      They’ve spent the last few weeks doing Abbott’s road. I saw them digging the street up when I went running that way, and had the trenches dug going to each house. And last week I saw a couple of KCOM vans doing a survey near mine just off New Millgate.

    5. Liam says:

      KCom currently installing on Mirkhill Road, near Charles Street. Work is moving at a pace.
      Equipment droped off Friday, passed a good number of properties on one side of the road on Saturday. That side nearing half way on Monday night.

  2. Danny says:

    I wonder if any network is willing to challenge Kcom in Hull at some point?

    1. A_Builder says:

      It would be hard to do that given there is a gold standard network in place with highish uptake.

      More likely KCOM wholesale and other providers enter that way. If they can then establish a user footprint they might build out their own network.
