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

Thursday, Apr 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.
