Who we are

We’re one of the UK's oldest communications services companies. Our solid foundations date back to 1904 when a quirk of history gave Hull and East Yorkshire its own phone company and we started life as the telephone department within the Hull Municipal Corporation. In the subsequent 112 years we’ve evolved and transformed into the business we are today. We’ve always been proud of being a little different. Our founders were pioneers and innovators in the field of telephony and today we emulate their spirit by helping our customers harness the power of technology.

We're constantly evolving so we can continue to help customers create greater value from the way they interact, collaborate and connect with what matters to them. This means we’re on a continuous change journey as we’re always looking for easier and better ways of doing things. It’s an exciting and inspiring place to work.

What we do

We serve two markets; consumers and businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire, and large public and private sector organisations across the UK.

In Hull and East Yorkshire… For consumers in Hull and East Yorkshire we provide phone, mobile, broadband and TV services. We’re really proud of our ultrafast broadband service, Lightstream, which we’re rolling out as a standard across the region. Our multi-million pound investment in the city’s digital network is not only giving the best connectivity today, but will be a major economic advantage for generations to come.

Our business customers in Hull and East Yorkshire can also take advantage of our Lightstream broadband service along with our collaboration and communication services specifically developed to help organisations to connect to their own customers and improve the experience they provide.

For large public and private sector organisations… In the rest of the UK we offer IT and communication services to large public and private sector organisations that are looking to transform the way they do business and operate. We’re a flexible and agile systems integrator (SI) that’s looking to provide a credible alternative to some of the big SIs. We work with leading organisations such as HMRC, BUPA, Dominos, ATOC, and NHS BSA, who value our flexible approach, talent and expertise.
