CityFibre Gets Hull up to Speed

Businesses now have a choice of digital infrastructure in Hull as CityFibre opens up a next-generation pure fibre network in the city. The network, which spans 62km across Hull, puts the city among the growing ranks of Gigabit Cities across the UK.

The Hull Gigabit City project is being delivered in partnership with Pure Broadband. The company has launched a separate division called Pure Speed to offer affordable, ultra-fast internet services to businesses in Hull and the surrounding area.

CityFibre has already installed fibre connections to mobile masts throughout Hull, upgrading the majority of the city’s mobile traffic to 4G, following a national framework agreement with mobile network operators EE and Three UK. This project led to an increase in mobile internet use on Three’s network in the city by 380%.

Rob Hamlin, Commercial Director at CityFibre commented: “We’re delighted to be able to offer world-class digital infrastructure to cities like Hull, who have historically had extremely slow broadband speeds. By working with Pure Broadband, businesses in Hull can now capitalise on gigabit speed internet connectivity to compete and succeed in a digital world.”

Adrian Bolster, MD of Pure Broadband commented: “Pure Broadband has operated in Hull since 2009 and our mission is to provide our customers with exceptional service levels and cost effective, reliable products. Our new gigabit, fibre only products are driven by our passion for our city and our belief that Hull businesses deserve the best.

“We’re extremely happy that CityFibre has chosen us as their launch partner in the city and look forward to delivering a range of fibre fed products which will finally put Hull on the map as a true digital city. The key message from Pure is that this is here, now, it is time for Hull to join the Gigabit revolution.”
