First Ultrafast Broadband trial area in Hull confirmed by MS3

The trial of ultrafsst Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband network around areas of Hull, aims first at a trail area covering 1200 households, has been confirmed by the communications provider MS3.

MS3’s initial investment and announcement has aroused interest from across the city and beyond, to as far as Thorngumbold and Brough, with apparently the operator found competing with a similar FTTP network provider, KCOM, operating in the region.

MS3 has identified initially an area of Hull for the first trial of the FTTH service. That covers around 2,813 properties which the operators has calculated will cost £500 per home passed, to connect. This is similar to the rollout and to the cost quoted to rollout over York, by similar providers like Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and CityFibre.

Residents in the declared Hull area can register their interest or sigh-up at connectHull ( or call to phone-01482 221721. The potential customers will be informed availability in their area subsequently. With rollout development expected to start this month, the first customers on the trial are expected to be connected in October this year. ISP MS3 is etching out plans to pass an excess of 20,000 homes per annum, onwards of next year.
