UK ISP Axis Offers 6 Months Half Price “Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband”

Hull-based business ISP Axis, which boldly claims to be “the UK’s leading business telecoms and utilities provider” (rivals may disagree), has announced that they’re offering new customers six months half price “superfast fibre optic broadband” (note: it’s actually an FTTC product not FTTH/P) to all new small and medium sized business customers.

Apparently customers who take the “UK’s cheapest” deal for businesses will get Internet download speeds of “up to 40MB” (note to Axis: that should be Mb for Megabits, not MB for MegaBytes) at £12.50 per month and then £24.99 thereafter; there’s also a £30 one-off connection fee and a standard 12 month contract.

David Meyers, Managing Director of Axis, said:

Axis for Business has been providing the best value telecoms and utilities to businesses in the UK for over 10 years. We constantly promote different offers to new customers to help them save on business running costs.

We pride ourselves on being the ‘go to’ telecoms and utilities provider for SMEs, with our excellent customer service and cheap tariffs. All new customers will be connected with the superfast broadband within 14 days!

Unfortunately it’s difficult to confirm the “UK’s cheapest” claim given that axis’s website doesn’t appear to list what their special offer package includes and the press release fails to clarify whether the usage allowance is capped or unlimited. Similarly we’re not sure what business-specific benefits or value-added services may be part of the offer, if any.

    wow the so called superfast rubbish is not what they make it out to be.

    They don’t even mention the upload, when will ISPs learn that a good upload speed is as essential as a good download especially if you want to make full use of cloud services.

    Nice, an ISP who can’t get their “superfast” speed units correct…

    VERY dodgy outfit. Several businesses that I know of have fallen foul of some very unscrupulous sales tactics from these guys, and Ofcom have had to intervene more than once. Use with caution, and make sure you’re aware of what you’re walking in to.
