KCOM Adds a Few New Communities to FTTP Broadband Rollout

Hull-based UK ISP KCOM has today added a small batch of new communities to their ongoing rollout of a new gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, which forms part of their wider £100 million investment drive.

The operator’s new network expansion programme is currently set to add around 45,000 extra full fibre premises to their existing coverage (here), which should eventually increase their total network reach to c.250,000 premises. But the deployment won’t stop there and new communities are still being added as part of their demand-led deployment strategy.

This week KCOM has revealed that they’ll soon connect even more East Riding of Yorkshire communities along the A1079 corridor later this year, with the village of Melbourne, near Pocklington, and its surrounding areas being the first to benefit. Pocklington was one of the first to benefit from their new expansion project, so it stands to reason that other nearby locations would follow.

Meanwhile, the operator’s expansion south of the Humber (North Lincolnshire) has continued with the confirmation that the large villages of Messingham and Epworth (both home to almost 4,000 people) would shortly also be joining those that have already been announced. Take note that KCOM has yet to update their Lightstream Rollout page to reflect these changes, as well as some of those announced back in April.

Customers typically pay from around £39.99 per month for a 100Mbps (30Mbps upload) package with unlimited usage and PAYG calls on an 18-month term, which goes up to £69.99 for their top 900Mbps (180Mbps upload) package. A £25 one-off connection fee also applies. You can also test the 900Mbps speed out for the first 6 months of service by paying just £24.99 per month as part of an ongoing promotion for expansion areas.
