AAISP UK Doubles the Usage Allowance of its Home Broadband Package

Wednesday, Dec 12th, 2012 (8:21 am) - Score 831

UK ISP Andrews and Arnold (AAISP) appears to have quietly doubled the default data usage allowance of its recently launched Home Broadband (Home::1) package from 25GB to 50GB (GigaBytes), which costs from £25 inc. VAT per month and includes a free wireless router with IPv6 support (plus one IPv4 address). But that’s not all.

Customers who previously wanted a bigger usage allowance could also pay £35 a month for the “High usage100GB option, although this too has now been increased to 150GB and you can even pick a 250GB allowance for a total of £45. A further 50GB of usage can also be added with a £10 top-up. A phone line can also be included for another £10 a month, although most people will already have one from BT that they can use.

The move is most likely designed to make the package appear more competitive with the current market, although AAISP maintains that its higher prices reflect their more advanced range of services and higher quality (e.g. a real block of IPv6 addresses, a static IPv4 address, proactive line monitoring, line bonding support etc.).

Otherwise little else has changed. The Home:11 package comes with ADSL / ADSL2+ connectivity (i.e. maximum speeds of up to 20-24Mbps) but customers choosing to pay an extra +£10 per month will be able to add a superfast broadband (FTTC) connection with maximum download speeds of up to 40Mbps (10Mbps uploads); another +£10 on top of that will get you the up to 80Mbps (20Mbps uploads) boost. Take note that there’s a £100 installation fee for the FTTC/P service and £50 for new ADSL lines.

It’s clear from AAISP’s site that its roots are in the business sector and their Home::1 package remains firmly targeted towards “technically savvy individuals“. Credits to one of our readers, Stuart, for spotting the change.
