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%.

In an interesting development OneWeb, which is owned by a consortium of the UK Government and Indian conglomerate Bharti Global (here), has secured an investment of $350m (c.£257m) from Japanese company Softbank – the same firm that effectively forced it into bankruptcy last year by putting a stop on further funding.

The community focused broadband ISP B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) has today announced that Michael Lee is being appointed to become their new CEO.
