Expansion accelerates at ultrafast internet firm

Tony Jopling

A Yorkshire-based internet provider has connected 5,000 new customers in 12 months and expanded its own workforce.

Pure Broadband, which offers full fibre broadband across Yorkshire, has recruited employees to seven new roles during the same period, with key appointments including a financial director, service operations manager, sales manager and marketing manager to support the company’s ongoing growth.

Other milestones for the Hull-based ultrafast broadband provider during the year include the growth of its internet offering into Doncaster and Rotherham, the launch of branding and a new website and a move to premises on Hessle’s Priory Park.

Tony Jopling, who was appointed managing director in mid-2021, entered the role with the target of doubling its growth over the next three years.

With its 5,000th customer acquired during the year set to be connected this month, the company says it is now ahead of this initial target.

Jopling said: “As a team, we couldn’t be happier with the results we have seen over the past year.

“From customer service advisors to technicians, our employees have truly gone above and beyond to take our business to the next level.

“More residents across Hull and the wider Yorkshire region are choosing Pure Broadband as their internet provider every day.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to beat our growth targets as word spreads further that there’s a great alternative to some of the bigger broadband providers right on their doorstep.”
