Claranet ISP Boosts UK FTTC Superfast Broadband Speeds up to 80Mbps

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 (1:35 pm) - Score 1,395

Business focused ISP Claranet has today become the latest internet provider to upgrade its range of superfast “Fibre” broadband packages to support download speeds of up to 80Mbps (Megabits per second) on BT’s Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) platform for home and business users.

Claranet describes its network as being “business grade“, which is another way of saying that you should expect to pay a bit more for the extra quality (this is similar to Zen Internet’s philosophy on access provision). As a result the ISPs three primary Home Fibre Broadband packages certainly don’t sit at the budget end of FTTC pricing.

Claranet Home Fibre Broadband (inc. VAT)

Home Fibre 25GB – £29.99
* Download speeds of up to 80Mbps
* Upload speeds of up to 20Mbps
* 25GB Monthly Usage Allowance
* UK based support
* Free Zxyel NBG4604 Wireless N Gigabit router

Home Fibre 50GB – £31.99
* As above
* 50GB Monthly Usage Allowance

Home Fibre 100GB – £37.99
* As above
* 100GB Monthly Usage Allowance

Each package is offered alongside either a 12 or 24 month contract term, although the free engineer install is only available if you take out a lengthy 24 month contract. Otherwise the ISPs site remains somewhat sparse on detail, possibly because they’re more geared towards business solutions, which incidentally go up to 110Mbps on BT’s FTTP platform.

Sadly there’s no word on whether or not Claranet’s existing 40Mbps capable FTTC customers will get the upgrade to 80Mbps for free or not.

    I used have an account with these guys back in the day. Top notch for customer service. But you would expect that with the price!.

    Shame there isn’t an unlimited package to rival against BT Retail or soon to be Sky

    They did actually have an unlimited FTTC package for gamers but it seems to have vanished from their site.

    For the gamer service you need to refer to http://www.claranetgamers.co.uk

    I get my 80MB connection with ClaraNetSOHO a week on Monday. Can’t wait. Heard a lot of good things about them

    1. SpencerUk says:

      Really good company and treat their customers like family which is good 🙂

  5. Kyle says:

    A shame they don’t offer a WLR product!

    I’d hope Claranet staff come and cook my dinner for me at these prices.

    Can anyone explain why they would choose a 25GB/month package for £29.99 when they can get BT Infinity for less money with no limit?

    After all, the biggest weakness on Infinity is their management of P2P – not something you could practically use with a 25GB/month limit anyway.

    Why would anyone who does as little as 25GB/month even NEED 80Mbit?
