We do all sorts of good stuff for you. Not just unflappable broadband, but things that are good for your neighbourhood too.


  • Fast-forward

    Get the ultimate full fibre broadband experience and enjoy some of the fastest speeds in the UK, right to your door. It’s time to speed things up so that you can enjoy all the things you love online.

  • Future-first

    The future of broadband is full fibre. Every product and service we offer has been built today with tomorrow in mind. Our technology partners share our passion for delivering customer-responsive, future proof solutions that will stand the test of time. Out with the old and in with the new.

  • Fibre-forever

    With us, you receive your own, exclusive fibre connection, which means you’ll get the speeds you pay for (because you’ll never have to share your connection with your neighbours). Not only that, everyone in your home can be online, on multiple devices, all at the same time – even at peak-time.

  • We ARE your community

    We’ve invested £100 million into our region’s towns and villages to create the infrastructure needed to pave the way for stronger, better, faster online connectivity. Full fibre broadband should be available for everyone; we deserve it.

  • We’re a heartbeat away

    Our people are (literally) right beside you. Our customer service teams and engineers are locally based, so when you need a fast response or home visit, we’ll always be close enough to support you. We may even be your friends or neighbours!

  • We're on your team

    We’re a Yorkshire-rooted company with over 100 years’ experience under our belt. We’re proud of our heritage but most importantly, we know that our people here at KCOM have shaped our success. With accolades such these are testament to the hard work of our people.

    There's full fibre broadband, then there's everything else.

    • Network average speeds

      The network average speed is the download speed (throughput) that 50% of our residential customers can expect to get during "peak time" (8pm-10pm). This is the overall network average and not what you should expect to see at your address. The speed is derived from Ofcom's UK broadband performance report (Nov 2020) and data from speed tests using test lines that monitor our network performance. These speed tests are carried out using an independent internet measurement standard that assesses the performance of our actual broadband packages, which is undertaken by Samknows.
