KC, which has long been the incumbent fibre broadband provider for Hull and East Yorkshire, is facing competition from MS3 Communications, after the latter organisation's new fibre broadband network officially went live.

According to MS3, Phase 1 of its £5.5 million project to install 116 km of fibre optic cable around the City of Hull has now been completed by Welch Civils and telecoms developer Compass Infrastructure UK.

The company has been competing with KC, traditionally the major telecoms operator in Hull, which has been deploying its own fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) and fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband network, that the firm says offers download speeds of up to 350Mb.

According to KC, it has selected FTTP as its technology of choice for rolling out fibre broadband, as it provides the ability to offer even faster services in future in line with the needs of its customers.

Tony Hales, Managing Director of MS3 Communications, said there is "genuine excitement and interest" in the rollout of fibre broadband in the City of Hull.

"The benefits of having the only all fibre network in the city are obvious in terms of reliability and the services we will be able to offer but this is only the start," he added.
