Brough became a town in the mid-13th Century, but was originally the settlement of Petuaria as early as the Roman era. The town's population almost trebled from 355 in 1796 to 1,009 in 1905 and expanded further after the opening of the Blackburn Aircraft Company during the Second Word War.
Today the town has some serious high-tech neighbours. BAE Systems is a major employer in the village and supports around 1,000 jobs for the local area, although plans have recently been released for the creation of a Brough Enterprise Zone to boost economic growth. Evidently, any future residential and commercial developments will also boost the demand for more efficient, faster broadband services in the village.
The standard of broadband in Brough is generally below the national average, although many streets are achieving reasonable connections. Internet speeds near Cave Road and Saltgrounds Road are around 6Mbps, while speeds further east near Welton Road, Welton Low Road and towards Common Lane range from approximately 7Mbps to almost 12Mbps. Hopefully, it won't be long until all homes and businesses in Brough can enjoy the fastest digital technology.
Telephone exchanges in Brough
The small town of Brough has its own telephone exchange that provides broadband and landline access to more than 4,500 individual properties. It can be found on the circular Grange Park, just off Welton Road and a short distance from the town Post Office. The postcode for the Brough exchange is HU15 1BJ.
As Brough is located within the catchment area for the city of Hull, the principal provider of home phone and broadband services isn’t BT – it’s Kingston Communications. This is markedly different to the rest of the UK where BT is the primary supplier of landlines and many broadband services. Because of this, choice between providers may be limited.
