      Sky Broadband in Hull (Karoo land)

      Hi,

      I'm Alan, I live in Hull (the only place in the UK which has only one broadband provider!)

      I hope to get some support to try and coax sky into the area, because like a lot of people I want SKY, Broadband and Phone all from one provider.

      But its the cost of setting up, the different infastructure and the time that would be spent for such a small customer base.

      If you life in Hull and would like to try and help visit the non-profit website that is not affiliated with any organisation below:

      Because they have no BT lines in Hull, there isn't much choice of ISP, but now there is another option...

      Some option
      "Depressingly slow speeds, reminiscent of that old devil dial-up, begin at 256Kb for £19.99 a month, and peak at a measly 2Mb with 128Kb upload, for an eye-watering £75.99 a month.
      All contracts are 12-month, and the above prices are for people who pay for the whole year in advance; so anybody who’d like the privilege of paying monthly, add on an extra £5 per month."


      OK if you are a Lottery winner though
