Connexin acquires Pure Broadband

19 Jul 2022

Hull-based Connexin, which is deploying a fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network in parts of Hull and the wider East Yorkshire region, has announced its acquisition of local ISP Pure Broadband. In a press release confirming the development, Connexin said the purchase of Pure Broadband, which is also based in Hull, would see it acquire around 15,000 subscriptions and increase its workforce to nearly 150, while it claimed the deal would make Connexin ‘one of the largest alternative network providers in the North’. Current Pure Broadband customers will reportedly see no change to their service or billing.

Of note, this is the second acquisition announced by Connexin this month, with the company having earlier in July revealed that it had purchased another Hull-based ISP, Wisper Broadband, in a move which it claimed at the time was ‘part of Connexin’s plans for significant regional growth to challenge the lack of broadband choice in the Hull area’.

Commenting on the latest deal, Connexin’s CEO and co-founder Furqan Alamgir said: ‘This acquisition brings together two of the best technology companies in the region and I’m very proud to be welcoming Pure Broadband to the Connexin Group … The acquisitions of Wisper and Pure Broadband, along with the rollout of our own 10Gbps capable full-fibre network, demonstrates our commitment to the region and investment into the local economy.’
