The residents of Hull are not happy with the lack of choice when it comes to broadband services.

Kingston Communications owns the telecoms network in Hull and as a result is the only fixed-line provider that homeowners in the city can opt for.

Now a petition has been posted on the 10 Downing Street website, attracting thousands of names supporting the call for steps to be taken to increase competition.

Anita Pati of the Guardian commented: "Despite its population of 250,000 - roughly the same as Nottingham or Newcastle - many Hullonians feel they are living in a broadband black hole.

"With no BT lines in the city, residents rely on the services of Kingston Communications (Kcom), which controls Hull's telecoms network and its broadband arm, Karoo."

The organisers of the petition believe that the introduction of competitors into Hull's broadband market would result in a more const-effective service.
