Hull ISP KC Extends its Fibre Optic Broadband Trial to 5 High-Rise Blocks

Posted: 25th Oct, 2011 By: MarkJ
kc uk ftthHull ISP kcThe incumbent internet and phone provider for Hull and East Riding (Yorkshire, UK), KC (Karoo), has expanded their current trial of superfast fibre optic broadband ( FTTH ) to include five urban high-rise blocks on Great Thornton Street and Cambridge Street.

The first household on Great Thornton Street are expected to be connected by the start of November and will be offered a free upgrade to the service, provided they agree to report back on their experiences. Speeds of up to 80Mbps with "unlimited" downloads have been promised.

KC's Director of Consumer Services, Nick Thompson, said (Hello from Hull and East Yorkshire):

"We've had great feedback from the customers we've already connected to our super fast broadband in Woodmansey, where broadband speeds were slower than average because of how far the village is from the nearest telephone exchange.

One of my favourite comments is that switching to our new fibre service was like swapping a Reliant Robin for a Ferrari. We're looking forward to bringing this amazing online experience to many more customers across the region and showing people just what KC super fast fibre optic broadband can offer them."

KC ultimately aims to make its new service, which will use both Fibre-to-the-Home ( FTTH ) and Fibre-to-the-Cabinet ( FTTC ) style solutions, available to 15,000 homes in the region before the end of 2012.
