Connexin strengthens its position in the North with Wisper Broadband Acquisition

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

With the acquisition of Wisper Broadband, an internet service provider in Hull, Connexin will welcome thousands of new customers to its network.

The coming together of these two local companies is part of Connexin’s plans 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 and higher quality broadband. Wisper Broadband customers will see no immediate changes to their current service, billing or support.

The move comes as Connexin continues the roll-out of its own hyperfast, full-fibre network across Hull and East Riding. The network recently connected its first customers and is rapidly expanding, providing more people with high-quality internet services. Connexin has demonstrated speeds of over 2Gbps, meaning the provider now offers the fastest home broadband speeds in the city.

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 increasing 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, watch this space…”
