BT in Hull and surrounding area

When are BT going to come into Hull and give Karoo some competition. There are many karoo customers who would relish the chance to change from Karoos like it or lump it attitude. We are not getting a fair service from them and are missing out on the many alternative offers available from BT.

Re: BT in Hull and surrounding area

That is really a question for OFCOM and will probably never happen unless the Hull area is forcibly opened up to competition.

The former Kingston communications has a monopoly there, just as BT and previously the GPO had everywhere else, once upon a time

BT have been able to operate in Hull since 1998 but choose not to.

Re: BT in Hull and surrounding area

I would very much doubt BT will go anywhere near Hull. It's all down to how the telephones were nationalised in the 20s, the GPO (post office) ended up with all the phone companies/local council phone system apart from Hull's.

 

Also, it seems that KC have used a different (and incompatable) size of phone cable to BT meaning that other Broadband suppliers' kit won't work with KC lines even if they did get access to the exchanges.

Re: BT in Hull and surrounding area

I was going to ask this in the BT sport section but I may as well raise it here:

 

What is the position for people in Hull with BT sport? Can they get it in any way?

Oh yes hadn't thought of that. Bit of a bummer though to be forced to have satellite and pay £12 per month and £15 activation. Hull are in the premier league too.

My ex (born in HullSmiley Frustrated) and our younger daughter have season tickets at the KFC. I'm a long-time Chelsea supporter, though my last season ticket cost £43! 17 August will be fun.

Well, either the 17th or the 18th. The wisdom seems to be that Sky will take that game and show it on the Sunday, mainly because of the Mourinho return. It is a big game for Hull's first.

 

Personally I can't stand Mourinho so I will be cheering Hull on.Smiley Embarassed
