Let's get your landline fibre ready


You’ve probably heard that there’s a major change coming to the way landlines work in the UK as it upgrades from its old copper phone network to a new fibre one.

Although this is happening across the country, in Hull and East Yorkshire it’s KCOM which is pioneering the way and upgrading to a full fibre network.

We’re doing this because the existing copper network is old – in many places more than 40 years old – and no longer fit for purpose. Fibre is more reliable, easier and quicker to repair and uses far less energy – so it’s good for the planet too.
