AAISP Boosts Usage Allowances for UK Broadband Subscribers

Thursday, November 24th, 2016 (2:40 pm) - Score 675

UK ISP Andrews and Arnold (AAISP) has announced that customers of their pricey and usage restricted Home:1 broadband (FTTC / VDSL2 and ADSL2+) tariffs will be given a free +50GB (GigaBytes) data allowance boost, which for most people will begin on 1st December 2016 (i.e. your next bill).

As a result of the change those on the Home:1 tariff will see their existing usage allowance of 100GB rise to 150GB and those with 200GB will increase to 250GB. The ISP will also launch several new SoHo::1 tariffs for businesses with 150GB, 250GB 350GB and 2TB quotas.

Apparently the new SoHo::1 options will have a few extra features that the existing Home::1 services don’t have, such as blocks of IPv4, VAT invoices and optional proactive line monitoring during working hours. This will be available on the order form next week (28th November 2016).

    Looking at the AAISP website – “VDSL” not fibre. Very good. Honestly advertised.

    As is the speed estimate – 12 to 30Mbps down 2 to 7 Mbps up. So this means it might not even be as fast as 3G.

    £45/mo for just 150GB, for those slow speeds when most others offer “unlimited”?

    OK, we pay £75/mo for 4G with 100GB per month. But it’s so very much faster. Going back to even 7Mbps up would be painful. Just doesn’t make sense unless you can reach out of the window and touch the VDSL cabinet. A “good quality” 7Mbps is still only, er, 7Mbps.

    Actually, I agree with charging people for what they use rather than socialising the cost of P2P downloaders across the whole customer base. But it’s easy to see why they’re such a niche player.
