ISP Aylesbury Vale Broadband Extends 300Mbps FTTH to Granborough

The publicly funded Aylesbury Vale Broadband project, which last year rolled out a 300Mbps Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network to the rural Buckinghamshire (England) village of North Marston, has this week announced that they’ve commenced the 3km extension to reach Granborough.

The nearby village of Granborough is home to around 600 people and, assuming the weather holds, then it should only take a week to get all of the ducting laid across 3km of fields before arriving in Green End. However there’s a very mixed forecast for later this week, so delays should perhaps be expected.

After that AVB will make its way via the rear of properties on Green End before arriving at the main road in Granborough. Once live, residents will be able to take an unlimited 30Mbps package from £30 per month, which rises to £38 for 100Mbps and the pricey heights of £135 for the full 300Mbps. Remember, there’s no separate line rental to pay on FTTH/P.

The one-off connection fee for the service is £150, although this only works if you’re happy to “self-install” the cable to your property and it will cost a little more if you wish to hire a professional to do the job. AVB offers an approved installer who charges around £95 for up to 35m of external installation (good enough for most properties).

    Presumably the state aid challenge being raised by a local altnet has been sorted?

    BT 330/30 is around £99 a month and some ISP’s still try and get you to have a landline with it (Zen) but if this is 300/300 then it’s worth it. The install costs ate a bit high but they have to pay for the work they have done so it’s also fair as a one off

    most of these premises would have been at 50 m/bps FTTC due tho the distance form the respectvie cabs or a faction of the outlay had they been included in the BDUK or a procurement to run a solution been run and FTTc hyad been chosen as the technology I reckon that would have saved around 1m of the total cost if not more
