Wholesale provider Entanet, which supplies broadband services to a number of ISPs in the UK, has announced that its partners can now offer a free installation (saving £80 +vat) with their superfast broadband (FTTC) packages and they’re also offering discounts worth up to 50% off the monthly service charges.
The promotion, which will run from 28th January 2013 to 31st March 2013, will apparently be available on all packages that carry a 24 month contract and is also open to all FTTC migrations from unbundled (LLU) based ISPs.
Paul Heritage-Redpath, Entanets Product Manager, told ISPreview.co.uk:
“The broadband market is now keenly focussed on fibre and this latest promotion will ensure our channel partners gain a competitive edge in what is a price-sensitive arena. We expect BT Wholesale to raise its FTTC installation charges from 1st April, so this offer could not be more timely.”
Entanet also intends to provide its partners with a report that identifies all customers on their platform who could potentially upgrade to faster services such as FTTC (i.e. consumers on Entanet vISPs should probably expect a few promotional mails).
We note that at least one of Entanet’s vISPs, Vivaciti, has already announced plans to offer free activation on their up to 80Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) services.
