ISP Direct Save Telecom Reintroduces 76Mbps FTTC Fibre Pro Broadband

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 (12:37 pm) - Score 636

Budget ISP Direct Save Telecom has resuscitated their ‘up to’ 76Mbps capable unlimited “Superfast Fibre Pro” (FTTC) broadband package, which had previously vanished from sale. Apparently the provider has since been “flooded with enquiries” about the service and has thus made it available again.

Until now DST’s primary FTTC package has been their ‘up to’ 38Mbps unlimited option, which costs from £14.75 per month (the first 3 months are free + £24.95 one-off setup fee) on top of line rental (from the equivalent of £11 per month). It also includes a free wireless router, free UK weekend calls and comes alongside an 18 month contract term.

By comparison their returning 76Mbps product is much the same, albeit faster and costing £19.95 per month (no discounts). Related customers can also add UK evening and weekend calls for an extra £1.90 a month or anytime UK calls from an extra £5.50 per month.

Stavros Tsolakis, CEO of Direct Save Telecom, said:

When we launched our low-cost fibre product at the end of last year, at the same time we withdrew our Superfast Fibre Pro deal as we did not think there would be enough demand for it.

However, I am pleased to say we have been proved wrong as there have been lots of enquiries and requests about it since it was withdrawn. So I am delighted to say as of now we have re-launched it so customers now have the choice between the low-cost fibre product and Superfast Fibre Pro.

In both cases, in terms of cost, we are very competitive when you compare us to the other best deals around and we are way ahead of the likes of BT, Sky and Virgin. The launch of the low-cost fibre deal, and now the reintroduction of the superfast 76Mb product, means consumers now have more of a choice when it comes to fibre and makes Direct Save Telecom a real player in the market.”

Still it’s worth remembering that there’s not a lot of point in taking the faster FTTC service if you already struggle to get even close to the top 38Mbps speed on their budget option, since it will not magically overcome the laws of physics that hinder VDSL2 based copper line performance.
