Connexin strengthens position in the North with Wisper Broadband Acquisition

KATIE MUIR ON JULY 9, 2022

Hull-based IoT and digital infrastructure specialist Connexin has acquired Wisper Broadband as the company continues to grow its fibre offering in the region.

With the acquisition of Hull internet service provider Wisper Broadband, Connexin will welcome thousands of new customers to our network. The union of these two local companies is part of our plan for significant regional growth to challenge the lack of broadband choice in the Hull area.

Through this acquisition, Connexin aims to give the people and businesses of East Yorkshire better value, greater choice, higher quality broadband, and better broadband deals. Wisper Broadband customers will see no immediate changes to their current service, billing or support.

The move comes as we continue the roll-out of our own hyper-fast, full fibre network across Hull and East Riding. We recently connected our first customers to the new network, which is rapidly expanding, providing more people with high-quality internet services. Connexin has demonstrated speeds of over 2Gbps, the fastest home broadband speeds in the city.

Full fibre network for Hull and East Riding

Furqan Alamgir, Co-founder and CEO of Connexin, said: “I would like to thank Mike and Paul from Wisper and we are thrilled to welcome Wisper Broadband and its customers to the Connexin family as we continue to grow our presence in Hull and East Riding.

As a local company, we are passionate about providing the best online experience to the people of Hull and the surrounding area. Through the acquisition and the roll-out of our own full fibre network, it brings us another step closer to doing just that and creating the fairer, more diverse, and best-in-class broadband offering that the region has long deserved.”

Michael Foley, Managing Director at Wisper Broadband, said: “Wisper Broadband and Connexin have worked very closely together over the last 10 years and always had a similar objective – to give the city an increased choice in broadband providers.

As technology has progressed, we have seen a significant increase in the requirement for full fibre and a fairer marketplace within Hull; as such, we are extremely excited to join forces with Connexin at such a key time in their fibre rollout and am confident that over the coming months Connexin will bring the next generation of full fibre to the people of Hull.
