Fixed Line Broadband Availability in the Hull Area

Hull is a special case for broadband and telephony due to not being covered by British Telecom. To find out how this affects broadband, read on.

Broadband and telephone lines in the Hull area are supplied by Kingston Communications aka Kcom and the ISP KC. Although Kcom have opened their network to other providers, currently no third party suppliers have found it economically viable to move into the area due to the non-standard cabling Kcom uses.
