We’ve got Hull covered.
We’re investing millions to prepare Hull for a digital future.
Hull is the only UK city where ultrafast broadband is being rolled out as standard.
More than 150,000 properties already have access to Lightstream.
So far we’ve installed over 8 million metres of Lightstream fibre.
Every 20 minutes of every day we connect another customer to Lightstream.
Ultrafast broadband from KCOM that uses the latest technology made from glass fibre rather than copper. This gives a much faster and more reliable internet connection. It is also future-proof technology, meaning that when everybody starts to do more things online like watching TV, making video calls, working, gaming and more, screens won't freeze, jump or stop like they might have done before.
Copper wire was never designed to carry high-speed data in the same way as the new fibre cable. Put simply, fibre is much faster than standard broadband.
Things like bad weather or lots of people on the internet at the same time might mean your current service drops out a lot. With fibre, speed and connection isn’t affected.
As things like Smart TVs, tablets and mobiles improve, they’ll depend more and more on a strong, fast and stable connection. Going ultrafast means you’ll always be able to enjoy the things you love without the risk of buffering.

*Wherever possible we use Fibre to the Home (FTTH) technology, to enable customers to enjoy the best possible superfast connection speeds.
As at 31 March 2016, 93% of available properties were connected using FTTH.
