Woodmansey, the first among the fibre broadband beneficiaries of KC

Monday, September 5th 2011

The Internet Service provide, KC, is taking up trials of fibre to the home (FTTH) and fibre to the kerb (FTTK) broadband in Woodmansey, East Yorkshire for the next few months. The residents here have the privilege to be the first among the UK population to get fibre optic connection through KC. The test will be conducted by Karoo, the associate of KC at East Yorkshire and Hull. The current subscribers of the company will be getting the facility at no extra cost. They can also avail limitless download provision. However they are expected to feed back to the company regarding the performance of the new system. Download speed of up to 100Mbps can be attained with the fibre optic system. That means, within a minute or two, an entire High Definition movie can be downloaded. A mere two seconds will be adequate for transferring a complete music album. In comparison, BT’s Infinity package will provide a speed of maximum of 50 MB only. The current average download speed for the whole country is only around 6 Mbps. KC’s installation process is in full swing since July. The service provider is confident of making the final connection to the Woodmansey homes by end September, well before the scheduled date. Nick Thompson of KC is pleased with the progress of work. Different technologies are being looked into. For example, the whole ‘Apple apps’ was downloaded in less than a second. He is eager to see the people making use of and enjoying the fast connectivity. Trials are going on successfully without any hindrance.
