KCOM has connected another vital community hub to its full fibre network.

The broadband provider was delighted to be joined by Scunthorpe MP Holly Mumby-Croft MP, and members of Kirton Town Council including Mayor Hazel Fox, as its celebrated the installation of its full fibre broadband at Kirton-in-Lindsey’s KLASSIC Park community hub.

KLASSIC, which stands for Kirton in Lindsey Actively Supporting Sport In the Community, will now be able to offer online services with ultrafast connectivity allowing locals to gain seamless, reliable, access to the internet.

KCOM community engagement manager Linzi Corrigan, said: “Community spaces like KLASSIC Park are the lifeblood of many of the rural towns and villages in our area, so it was a pleasure to provide our award-winning, full fibre, broadband to this well-loved community hub. It’s thanks to our collaboration with Kirton Town Council and KLASSIC Park that we were able to make this happen.”

A spokesperson for the community hub said: “The KLASSIC Park Trustee Members are very grateful to KCOM for supporting KLASSIC Park with the installation of full fibre broadband. This will open many more doors for what KLASSIC Park is able to offer our community, including looking at starting up a Remote Working Hub for homeworkers, which can be a very socially isolating way to work.”

Linzi added that KLASSIC Park was just the latest in a series of North Lincolnshire community hubs KCOM has connected to its full fibre network including Epworth Thurlow Pavilion, Epworth Shed on the Isle and Wrawby Village Hall.

She added: “This is part of our mission to extend our network to communities in rural areas, creating online opportunities for local people in areas which have previously experienced poor connectivity. “We’re always looking to create more full fibre accessibility in community spaces in the towns and villages we serve.”
