Business ISP Supplier Entanet UK Reveals 80Mbps Broadband Prices

Tuesday, Apr 3rd, 2012 (2:21 pm) - Score 857

Communications provider Entanet, which supplies broadband internet access solutions to ISPs in the UK, has revealed how much its channel partners will have to pay if they want to offer the forthcoming 80Mbps (Megabits per second) capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) based superfast broadband upgrade to their customers.

The new service, which will be available to Entanet’s clients from 12th April 2012, will apparently cost an additional £3.25 per month (EU SSP ex VAT) when customers move from one of the existing ‘up to’ 40Mbps (2Mbps upload speed) packages to the 80Mbps (10Mbps uploads) option. Crucially Entanet will offer this at a special discount price of £1.25 per month (EU SSP ex VAT) until 10th July 2012.

This means, for example, that Entanet’s resellers can offer their end user customers an ‘up to’ 80Mbps FTTC solution, with 15GB (GigaBytes) of inclusive monthly usage (the operators entry-level service for family packages), from £22.83 a month (£24.83 thereafter).

Entanet’s Head of Marketing, Darren Farnden, said:

We’ve already seen significant demand for our fibre broadband services and expect this to continue as even higher speed options emerge and availability continues to increase throughout the UK. We strive to be competitive in our pricing for this new service to enable our channel partners to compete effectively and generate profitable margins.”

It’s important to point out that this is the charge that Entanet levies against ISPs and is not necessarily what customers will pay directly. The charge, as it stands above (listed prices are Entanet’s “end user suggested selling price”), might not include the providers full profit margin. Most other ISPs appear to be adding a consumer premium of around +£5 to +£10 inc. VAT a month for the upgrade.
