Consumers living in the East Yorkshire village of Walkington have seen their broadband access improved by fibre-to-the-kerb technology.

Local broadband provider KC has delivered 15Mb broadband to the community, which lies four miles from the nearest telephone exchange in Beverly.

Prior to the network upgrade, download speeds of 1Mb were typical in Walkington, restricting access to advanced internet services.

Parish Councillor Ken Hearne, a keen online gamer, said the faster connection speeds have transformed his online experience.

"I downloaded a large game the other day which would have taken the best part of a day to download in the past, and it took just half an hour," he stated.

He said the difference is noticeable when simply browsing the web, as pages load instantaneously.

Nick Thompson, KC's Director of Consumer Services, said people now use broadband for more than just web browsing.

"The growth of gaming and services like online TV mean high-speed broadband is more important than ever, and at KC we’re determined to give our customers reliable, fast connections no matter where they live," he commented.
