Sure Group founder and managing director Charles Draper has appeared on national radio station LBC promoting the city of Hull – where Sure Group first formed and our headquarters is based.
The city enjoys the fastest broadband in the UK according to comparison website Broadband Choices, with an average download speed of 87Mbps.
That’s more than 30Mbps faster than the average UK download speed.
LBC contacted the Sure Group to speak to Charles about the impact it has on our growing services in the staffing, logistics, commercial and healthcare sectors.
Charles spoke live on Eddie Mair’s afternoon show on Friday 15th November.
He said: “Hull’s a really up and coming place now. We look at what KCOM offers our city. It makes a huge difference to how we operate especially in the way the world is now digital – especially when it comes to my business.
“We have offices across the UK and we operate different management systems within the business so it is important we have a good solid broadband connection to ensure we have effective links across the rest of our offices.
“Hull is potentially the digital capital of the UK – here we use KCOM and we’re proud of it. We have faster broadband in the UK than in Taiwan.
“Our head office is in Hull. A huge element of that is that we benefit from superfast broadband – the business runs off it.
“Why would we ever move our head office from potentially the digital capital of the UK?”
