    Fairly reliable compared to other providers, but what's the use in reliability with speeds 10x slower than competitor's.

    Worst speed I've had is 1500ms ping from an ookla test. That's 1.5 SECONDS!

    Overpriced for an awful service with no option to change from KCOM's monopoly. If I could, I'd change to another provider, but they'd have to use KCOM's awful infrastructure so the speeds would be the same if not slower. Customer service is okay but they can't fix the speed issue as it's a problem with KCOM's greed.

    KCOM is holding back Hull to speeds acceptable 10 years ago.

    Shocking service. Speeds are horrific. On phone and PC, it takes up to 3 minutes for pages to load, youtube buffers for 2-5 minutes at a time, horrific pings during gaming, customer service is alright as the staff are nice, but nothing ever gets solved. The speed is 10mbps but it seems more like 3.

    Lets just say its consistent. In a negative way. Looking for a monopoly themed internet provider, who abuses its power in hull? Well KCOM is here for you. I think through this review we can all excuse my verbal attack at KCOM, as humorously they cause mental breakdowns. People rely on their internet for social prosperity, financial and emotional. Well, these three aspects have been stripped from you by KCOM. Its terrible, and this review is coming from the more financially wealthy sector of hull.

    Lets start with customer service. Theres music to drive you insane as you wait half an hour for a live call, only for the magic four magic words to come out the speakers mouth-"We'll get back to you." This is never the case. Their reply time is somewhere around 10 plus working days.

    speed is 10mb max.

    I am 22 and have been with kc for some years now. I've always hated their speeds as I had a speed of 12 megabits (1.5 megabytes). It was awful to download games with since it took me something stupid like 16 hours for a 70 gigabyte file. I have to admit i was skeptical of the new lighstream being installed as I thought there was no way they would hit the speeds they showed. I have to say the new lighstream is amazing, i pay for the 3rd package i believe with a speed of 400 megabits. Had it 6 weeks now and i am still obsessed with speed testing it to see the numbers, it is always 422 megabits (52 megabytes). astonishing improvement from what i was using. I've never dealt with customer services since the Internet is in someone else's name, hence why i haven't done a rating there. Hated KC for about 6 years but now i love the lightstream, thanks KC!

    Absolute joke of a company. I'm no longer with them. I'm with 3 homefi. Got a 4h router through them and a took out a SIM only with unlimited data. A lot faster that kc and only 20 pound a month. Would not recommend kc to anyone. Worst company in the UK.
