Tens of thousands of homes in East Yorkshire are to benefit from new super-fast broadband.
Householders and businesses will soon be able to access download speeds of up to 20Mb – way faster than they currently can.
It’s a challenge to the region’s main communications provider – Kingston Communications – as BT are aggressively moving into their area in search of new business.
BT’s regional director for Yorkshire and Humber John Anderson said it will be a huge boost for everyone in East Yorkshire.
He continued: “We want to go even further by working with the public sector to find ways of bringing faster broadband to areas which are geographically and commercially more challenging.”
The news is of great interest to people in East Yorkshire, who have only had one viable option in KC for their communications needs.
However, KC themselves are trying to innovate and have recently connected residents of Woodmansey to fibre optics which has given them access to 100Mb downloads speeds.
And they believe they can fight off outside competition by giving 15,000 more people in the area access to the super-fast broadband in the coming months.Hu17.net - It's all about Beverley
