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.



Hull Broadband Buyers Guide

Most of the fixed line products listed on this site are provided over either a BT phone line or via Virgin Media's cable network, as such these are not available in the Hull area. If you're in the Hull area, your best option for fixed line broadband is Kingston Communication's KC ISP.

Alternatives to KC

While fixed line options are limited, Hull residents also have the option of exploring fixed wireless broadband or mobile broadband.

If you don't wish to go with KC, you could also try mobile broadband deals. A full list of mobile broadband providers that should be available in the Hull area are listed below. Another option is satellite broadband, such as products sold by the Satellite Broadband provider Tooway. These products are available everywhere in the UK albeit with a very expensive connection and equipment cost. However, there are more affordable options available by using 4G Home Broadband from mobile providers such as EE and Three. We've written a guide all about 4G home broadband telling you all you need to know, or you could just skip straight to the deals:


4G Internet supply broadband using the 4G Mobile Networks with a particular focus on more rural locations that can't get a decent fixed-line broadband service. Where 4G signals are weaker or customers want to maximise their 4G broadband performance, they’ll install an external antenna and for those in stronger 4G signal areas, there are router-only options. Contracts are for 12 months with unlimited usage.
