KC has extended its trial of super-fast 100Mb fibre broadband to the village of Weel in East Yorkshire.

The village, which lies on the edge of Beverley, just north of Hull, is described as being "technically challenging" for broadband, reports

Households are situated some distance from the nearest telephone exchange, meaning ADSL broadband speeds are typically poor.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby, Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said it was "great" to see KC installing fibre in rural areas.

He claimed the firm was giving country residents access to the "very best" broadband available in the UK.

"Too often rural residents are neglected when it comes to the provision of services, but KC’s investment demonstrates its commitment to the whole region," he stated.

KC's Director of Network and Engineering Services Andy Whale claimed that many people have been "amazed" by the broadband speeds available via fibre connections.

"Over the last two years we’ve invested several million pounds in our network to upgrade it and increase its capacity so our customers get a fantastic broadband experience," he stated.
