KCOM’s ground breaking rollout of ultrafast broadband has been nominated for a national award
The IT and broadband provider, which will complete its deployment of Lightstream broadband to more than 200,000 premises this month, has been shortlisted in the fibre connectivity category in the Connected Britain 2019 Awards.
Launched in 2018, the awards aim to celebrate the best in broadband and showcase how companies and organisations are leading the way in contributing to a more connected Britain.
KCOM is one of 14 companies, including TalkTalk and Gigabit Jersey, shortlisted in the category. The winner will be revealed at the award ceremony in London on Tuesday, 18 June.
Sean Royce, KCOM’s managing director, said: “We’re delighted to be nominated for this prestigious award which shows our commitment to creating a truly world class full fibre network for the people of Hull and East Yorkshire is paying off.
“We have already made huge strides in delivering ultrafast broadband to the region to make our network the best in the UK, if not the world.”
The nomination is the latest recognition for KCOM’s ultrafast broadband network.
The company scooped the award for best urban impact at the inaugural Altnet (Alternative Network) awards in London last November. The Altnets are organised by the Independent Networks Cooperative Association (INCA) which celebrates excellence in the development of digital communication networks in the UK.
Last month, KCOM’s work to inspire young people across Hull and East Yorkshire was recognised with a nomination in the Commitment to the Local Community category in the fifth annual Better Society Awards.
