Aquiss Cut Price of 1Gbps Full Fibre GPON Business Broadband

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 (9:55 am) - Score 1,527

Shropshire-based ISP Aquiss has reduced the price of their symmetrical 1Gbps Fully Managed Business Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) “full fibre” broadband product to £375 +vat per month, which is available around 14 towns and cities across the United Kingdom.

The service, which is NOT intended for ordinary residential consumers (this is a very different kind of product), makes use of Cityfibre’s fibre optic network in Aberdeen, Bracknell, Bradford, Bristol, Coventry, Edinburgh, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Peterborough, Reading, Sheffield and Southend-on-Sea.

Customers of the service will typically pay from £300 +vat a month for the 500Mbps option or £375 for 1Gbps, which both include unlimited usage, a 6 hour Service Level Agreement (SLA), Static IP address, 36 month contract and a free installation (including all the needed customer hardware). Service setup (lead time) typically takes 45 working days and this includes any site survey work required.

Martin Pitt, MD of Aquiss,said:

“As a full fibre service akin to a fibre leased line, our GPON solution provides essential benefits to business customers. Unlimited usage, and the absence of upgrade charges and downtime when accessing up to Gigabit speeds gives you the flexibility you may seek; while our comprehensive Service Level Agreement, rapid return to service guarantee from our technical specialists underpins your need for reliability and connected confidence.”

End.

    SO they are seriously going to turn away a home user who wants 1Gbps and can afford it? Kudos to their balls. I guess they are picky – nice to have I suppose!

    1. CarlT says:

      36 month contracts are illegal for business to consumer transactions. A home user would have to purchase via a business, even if a sole trader.

      Simon, those are neither words I have stated or the position of my company. That sentence was written by ISPR.

    3. Mark Jackson says:

      @Simon: “NOT intended” is not the same as an absolute like “NOT allowed”. But as Carl says, this is clearly not a product targeted for residential users as it’s much more SME centric in contract terms, features and price.

      @Martin: Slightly confusing comment, it may not be your words but are you then saying that it is intended for “ordinary residential” consumers? As above, I can’t see how unless you’ve got quite a different definition of “ordinary” 🙂 .

    4. CarlT says:

      Martin – I’m sure most people are aware that a 400GBP/month product isn’t targeted at home users and, per my message, a residential user . couldn’t simply call you guys and order it, however virtually no-one took that to mean that you wouldn’t sell to residential customers who want it if the conditions are right. It’s a business service going into our home here however I’m pretty sure a look at Virgin Media Business’s website shows how it’s targeted.

      The price looks pretty good, too, for what is nearly a private line replacement.

      I didn’t for a moment read into Mark’s statement what the OP of this thread did. This is the Internet and opinions of all kinds run free.

      I imagine you guys would either want all the 3 year subscription up front or a pristine credit record and hefty disposable income before you permitted a residential customer to take on that kind of contract through a Ltd company as the chances are the company wouldn’t have the required credit history.

    £375+vat!!!
    OMG.
    Coming from European country, this is shocking!

    1. Martin Pitt - Aquiss says:

      Alex, I really don’t think you understand the product offering and why this is extremely good value.

  3. Mike says:

    I don’t doubt it’s a good product but the price definately not ordinary.

    The price of three 350Mbps lines from VM is more in the realm of ordinary.

    1. CarlT says:

      It’s also liable to leave you without a connection any time there’s a fault on the network, and to have you congest the area every time you max all 3 out.

      VM provision overhead for one top tier customer to max out for a sustained period on a node, not 3.

      This ignoring the upload. It’s not quite a gigabit. About 63Mb throughput.
