UK 99p Stores Add Offer of 99p Per Week Unlimited Broadband

99p_stores_unlimited_broadband

One thing the UK Internet access market has in abundance right now is budget broadband ISPs and thus you’d probably have to be a little mad to launch another one into such an aggressively competitive sector. Never the less that’s exactly what the famously budget high street retailer 99p Stores has just done.

In fairness the new service, which proudly boasts the offer of an “up to 24Mbps” unlimited home broadband service from the equivalent of 99p per week (i.e. £4.29 per month for the first 6 months and £8.50 thereafter), isn’t strictly speaking “new” since it’s being provided by established operator Home Telecom that also offers a similar package (minus the 6 month discount).

Naturally customers will also have to take line rental from the same ISP, which just like Home Telecom also costs £14.50 per month (i.e. not technically 99p per week because it’s a bundle). As usual things get more expensive the closer you look, with an extremely lengthy 24 month contract term being applied and a setup/credit check/postage fee of £69 looming large. Customers will also get 100 minutes of Anytime UK calls (local and national calls cost just 2.50p per minute thereafter and no call connection fee is applied).

According to a brief press release, 99p Stores hopes this offer will push them into the “mainstream“, but it’s probably not going to worry their rivals like Direct Save Telecom or TalkTalk too much.. yet.

    + £70 line install or migrate charge. lol

    and apprently use TalkTalk network (so that means no 3db SNR)

    • Avatar adslmax

      Correct. Talktalk set SNR at 6dB and will not go lower than that!

    • Avatar No Clue

      There is no LLU that will let you have 3db AFAIK now. The only ones that allowed a FIXED 3db were BE broadband wasn’t it?

    • Avatar DanielM

      that’s not correct @No Clue

      and on top of that they take a £30 Fee (Which they credit back after first bill) so quite an expensive start.

      Tesco Broadband can offer 3dB, however you need to get second level tech to configure this. Sky also has this but on a very low number of lines (probably in the hundreds)

    • Avatar No Clue

      Sky will not do it anymore haven’t since they altered the way their DLM works which is ages ago, ask the ex-BE users that have been assimilated by sky about their db margins now. Tesco LLU broadband i dont think its an option on either, Tesco LLU products use or did use the Cable and Wireless network. It is also traffic managed http://www.tescobroadband.com/help-and-support/articles/view/2122?cat=1171 and although this may have changed i believe it is subject to a £45 setup fee, though there were rumours they were going to change that to only apply to fibre products, no idea if they did though.

      My spare line is with tesco ^^ it’s still on C&W LLU, am on 3dB SNR. although it took alot to get sorted. (nearly a month) benefit being pings are around 14-24ms to most uk servers. and interleaving is disabled (which is also a pain to get removed but its possible).

    • Avatar No Clue

      Guess you were lucky ICUK another C&W LLU provider could not change a friends margins, again i think they used to but have not for a while. Either way nobody should really be expecting things like this from a budget service of any ISP.
