Newest Review: ... upon Hull had the first digital telephone exchange in the UK but it was, for years, connected to the post office's (now BT) analogue network. KC have extended the Kingston upon Hull network way outside of the city's boundaries and now, you can have a fibre optic connection installed into your house direct to the fibre optic cable KC laid in your street years ago. How many people get THAT from BT? Comments on here such as "everyone in Hull is forced to get broadband from karoo" are patent rubbish. You can get broadband by satellite or through the air on 3G. The fact IS that the number of residents of Kingston upon Hull lik... more

Without going into Kingston Communications' proud history in too great detail, you can't really get much of an idea why the fastest broadband in the UK is to be found in Kingston upon Hull. Rather than make "profits" on which it would pay tax, the Kingston upon Hull City Council owned Kingston Communications would plough money into research and buying up other telecomms companies as well as expanding its fibre optic network (some comments on here are so far from the truth I wonder if they were written by KC's competitors who don't even try and get a foothold in the Kingston upon Hull market). Kingston upon Hull had the first digital ... Read the complete review

Karoo is the worst isp in the world, it used to be great hense the fact BBC chose to place there buildings in Hull. Karoo services need updating, they don't even have fiberoptic. They don't offer a unlimited package, they used to ages ago, although that changed quite quickly. To imporve Karoo they need to invest money into there network instead of nights out at the pub, and consider purchasing fiberoptic lines, and possibly allow other ISP's into the Hull area so people are not forced to purchase a Karoo line, although I will say they fix issues very quickly.

Hello there! I have a house within Hull and like all other people in the city, I am FORCED to use the karoo service for my broadband connection, which is extremely poor value. When will the guys there sort this service out? The packages from Karoo are so far behind the rest of the country. For example Sky is launching its broadband service soon, 2meg speed for free if your already a subscriber! (which i am) 8 meg for a fiver a month or 16 meg for a tenner! now compare that to karoo's service half a meg speed for a 10 pounds, 20 pounds for 2meg and a whopping 30 pounds for 3meg (which is their fastest!) I am on the 20 pounds a month package and I appreciate there ... Read the complete review

Karoo is the worst ISP I have ever come across!!! I had my account hacked a couple days back, and as a result the intruder gained access to one of Karoo's systems, so I was told. My account got disabled and I had to send in a letter promising this would not happen again even though I did not do this. There service poor, costly, and they tech guys/gals don't know anything. One of the senior technicains had never heard of Netstat, can u belive that. I had a mixture of upper and lowercase characters to gain access to both the internet and email wich I had been using for a number of months. Today I tried to get access to my email and it would not accept my ... Read the complete review
