Urban Fibre Optic ISP Hyperoptic Cuts Ultrafast Broadband Prices

Monday, April 4th, 2016 (7:35 am) - Score 655

Consumers covered by Hyperoptic’s ultrafast 1Gbps Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP/B) network in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Cardiff, Bristol, Reading, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Birmingham or Newcastle can now order the service for a reduced price.

Generally the ISP’s network prefers to focus on connecting big apartment (Multi-Dwelling-Units) or office blocks and if you live or work in one of those then it might be worth asking the management company if you’re covered by Hyperoptic’s fibre optic platform (or check via the ISPs website).

Otherwise the ISP tends to offer both a broadband + phone bundle or a standalone broadband (no phone) alternative, with the latter usually attracting a setup fee of £40. Meanwhile their phone bundles don’t have such a charge, but you still need to add the cost of Line Rental (£16 inc. VAT per month) on top. A summary of the latest deals can be found below.

Standalone Broadband (No Phone Service)

20Mbps Fibre Broadband
PRICE: £10 per month for 6 months (£22 thereafter) + £40 Setup Fee

100Mbps Fibre Broadband
PRICE: £17 per month for 6 months (£35 thereafter) + £40 Setup Fee

1Gig Fibre Broadband
PRICE: £29 per month for 6 months (£60 thereafter) + £40 Setup Fee

Broadband and Phone Bundle

20Mbps BB + Phone
PRICE: £4 per month for 6 months (£9 thereafter) + Line Rental

100Mbps BB + Phone
PRICE: £10 per month for 6 months (£22 thereafter) + Line Rental

1Gig BB + Phone
PRICE: £22 per month for 6 months (£47 thereafter) + Line Rental

The packages also include a free Hyper-hub wireless router, free installation (bundles), unlimited usage, 12 month contract and 24/7 customer support. Also take note that the 20Mbps package includes a 1Mbps upload speed, while the faster packages offer the same speed in both directions (symmetrical).

Hyperoptic also offers a no contract variant of their packages, which is usually around +£2-£4 more expensive per month.

    Not convinced that Gigaclear has anything resembling a “Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP/B)network” in those cities. It does have plenty of leased Ethernet connections from network operators that it is using to provide service to various MDUs, but no signs of a network of its own.

    1. wirelesspacman says:

      Assume by “Gigaclear” you mean “hyperoptic”? 🙂

    2. Mark Jackson says:

      I’ve seen Hyperoptic lay down and blow their own fibre optic cable, which is often required to actually connect the buildings up in the first place. Certainly they may be leasing some Ethernet connections too, but it would perhaps be unfair to say that they don’t have a network of their own.

      @wirelesspacman
      You’re right, clearly reading too much at the moment!

      @MarkJ
      I’ve seen very little evidence of Hyperoptic installing its own fibre, believe the vast majority of its “network” is in fact capacity leased from others. Worth asking it for clarification?

    4. karl says:

      Why is it certain individuals when talking about other organisations and their shoddy FTTC products have no issue with it being called “fibre”? But when it comes to the likes of Gigaclear, Hyperoptic and B4RN want to know the inside of a gnats backside on how the gigabit speed is delivered.

      PS MarkJ had a story last year about these same areas which was accompanied by an image of a man in a Hyperoptic vest installing fibre. Unless they do that for others ill assume it was their own and ignore the hearsay from certain people about hyperoptic.

  2. High-Fibre-Diet says:

    For a providers with a focus on MDU its unlikely to make sense to build their own long-haul fibre to connect the first location in any particular town/city back to the nearest location on their own network when leased capacity, either as dark fibre or lit service from the usual suspects, to bring connectivity to the area…

    Once expansion into additional buildings is on the cards I would expect it to be a purely economical decision as to whether these are close enough to the first site to be make building out their own fibre or continuing to use leased capacity…

    And if they know their stuff the building that are initially POP’s with leased capacity would just so happen to be laid out in such a way that when the break even point is reached where self-build fibre can deliver cost savings over leased then it will simply be a case of joining the dots where they have existing customers with a metro fibre ring that goes past a lot more potential new customers 😉
