Connexin Comes to Hull

Are you happy with your current service provider in Hull and the surrounding areas? Do their services fulfil your requirements?


…If the answer is NO, Connexin may just have the solution! Everybody in the UK has a reasonable choice of communications and service providers yet Hull has remained an exception to this, being the ONLY place in the UK not served by an additional provider. As many of you are aware, residents and most local businesses in Hull are served solely with telecoms services provided by Kingston Communications. Why should local residents and businesses not have the choice of alternative providers if the service currently in place does not satisfy one’s requirements? The current situation and in particular the lack of choice can’t be good for Hull. This is where Connexin comes in…If you’ve never heard of Connexin, get ready to change the way you think about phone calls. Connexin takes standard analogue audio signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and turns them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet.

“Using a conventional landline these days is like using a computer which doesn’t have an operating

system; VoIP is the “ windows” of the phone world. It allows phones to do so much more…”

Connexin ( is the brainchild of Furqan Alamgir and Alex Yeung, both of whom previously attended The Hull Grammar School. Having grown up in the area, the founders were very aware of the lack of choice and poor service offered by the existing provider, KC. The business was launched with the aim of providing individuals with a completely new and revolutionary way to communicate; a service enabling telephone calls to be transmitted as data over the Internet rather than as voice traffic over fixed lines using HD voice technology. Short and simple, you get:


  • FREE calls between Connexin users anywhere in the world 24/7
  • Reliable, high quality technology ensuring High Definition sound
  • The ability to take your Connexin number with you wherever you go and new lines in minutes without the bank busting charges
  • Competitive call rates to landlines, mobiles and international destinations
  • No roaming charges when you are abroad
  • Real time billing allowing you to check your bill instantly
  • Per second billing…Why pay for the whole minute?
  • Easy top up feature from your online account
  • Award winning support


The new service aims to bring change to Hull, offering businesses advanced features such as, per-second-billing, music-on-hold, call queuing, voicemail-to-email, and fax-to-email to name a few.
