Add another 10 premises to number of UK homes passed by FTTP
Beverley in Yorkshire has for a while been a place to look at if you want to find fast broadband speeds due to the roll-out of superfast broadband by KC. Now a small cluster of properties in Bentley (on the A163 between Beverley and Hull) can now get a FTTP service as the roll-out continues and reaches some rural areas.
KC the local network operator now has its Lightstream service available to some 30,000 households across Hull and East Yorkshire. Lightstream is predominantly a FTTP based service, with some FTTC, i.e. the inverse of what Openreach is using across the rest of the UK. Currently they offer a variety of packages with the fastest being a 350 Mbps download, 20 Mbps upload service for £99 per month.
The properties in Bentley may only number ten, but with the first customer live picking a 75 Mbps service, speeds are set to increase dramatically, our maps show a previous speed of 1.96 Mbps for Bentley. Up the road in Beverley there are people clearly signed up to the fastest product with speed tests over 300 Mbps appearing.
