Hull Digital on the Radio

Once again, twitter has proved itself! 🙂


On Monday, having twittered that we were going to be meeting Steve Jagger from Quickline Communications to test a Wimax signal, we were surprised and pleased to get a tweet from @mrwilliam, the BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s drive time host! You can see the tweeting that went on in the picture above…. It ended up with a short interview conducted from the garden! We’ve put it together into a short first podcast – many more to come!

William was good enough to get in touch the next day to say thanks, and he very kindly gave Radio Humberside our details too, so this led to a call from Tim Johns, the breakfast show producer, and ended up with an early morning trip to the BBC studios in central Hull.

We were made very welcome, and at around 7.50am, we were ushered into the studio and met Phil White the host, and here is the interview!


A big thanks for the opportunity to talk about Hull Digital and broadband in the area. For those of you who may be interested, we are on Radio Lincolnshire again on Monday 2nd March at around 6.30pm talking about email, how to make sure it doesn’t take over your life, and how to use it effectively for marketing. Tune on in!

    Hi Jon

    I would love to do a talk to your group as to why there is no choice of telecommunication or broadband operator in the Hull area other than that of KC.

    I have bee nconsulting for Nexus Telecommunications and Nexus will be the first Telecommunications Operator to take wholesale telephone line services from KC in the Hull area and sell them to their own business retail customers.

    I also deployed Hulls first new non KC network in 2006 which was a wireless network using the 802.11a band c spectrum which has 20 customers currently connected which provides businesses with fixed wireless broadband – the network that Steve Jagger / Quickline has bought.

    My telephone number is 07860 565291. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards

    Michael Pennington
