UK ISP Aquiss Offer 6 Months Half Price FTTP Superfast Broadband

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has launched a new discount on their unlimited Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based superfast home broadband packages, which offers them at half price for the first 6 months of service.

The discount means that monthly rentals start from £22.50 a month (instead of £45) for their 35Mbps average tier with phone line rental (standard call rates) and £24.50 a month (instead of £49) for their 67Mbps average tier. Each package tends to attract a £100 activation fee (one-off), static IP address and a 12 month contract term.

Sadly Aquiss don’t yet offer any ultrafast speed FTTP packages.

    It’s great to see a provider that correctly mentions VDSL as hybrid fibre, but what actually sets them apart for the increased price?

    FTTC 38/10

    Aquiss: Family Unlimited Fibre & Telephone Line Rental – Option 2 = £47.00
    Plusnet: Unlimited Fibre Broadband & Telephone Line = £34.98

    Use Talktalk fibre FTTC
    Real speed 60/15
    Monthly fee £22.50
    ISP who sell FTTP package must offer speeds over 100 Mb/s

    • Why? FTTP can work at any speed and not everybody may want to pay for the top performance. Choice is not a negative.

      Robert, would you like to explain to all those who can only FTTP connections go about getting an FTTC service?

      As Mark says, choice is important. Not everyone has the deep pockets to support the new Ultrafast speeds. However, experience and history often tell us, that those who demand higher speeds and the latest products, are the first to complain about the costs that come with them.

    It’s not really half price bargain at all because it will added hidden price by this £100 activation fee (one-off) another rip off and mis-sold.

      To be mis-sold implies you joined our service and were sold something you were not expecting. To be hidden implies that an Activation Fee was not shown on our website, it clearly is.

    Robert and Bob the same person? And probably being paid by TT.

    Given a choice between this, or TT’s offering at 2/3rd the price, I would take this. At least if there are any problems, I know they will get fixed in a timely fashion.

    I am one of the 5% who can get it, however I am concerned about the 76Mbps limit, as my current Aquiss FTTC connection is gsync’ed at over 100Mbps and is capped at 79.995Mbps by BTOR.

    Any comparison needs to be like for like on price, speed, consistency and reliability. FTTP (in all its current forms) will, in almost all cases, perform better than FTTC and may attract a premium. It is good to see ISPs offering lower priced entry level products on FTTP. Any upfront cost should be factored into any contract price as should any impact on your home network or decor.

    Comparisons between ISPs, their products and pricing will increasingly be only meaningful for a specific location particularly in the next few years where ISP choice may be limited for the higher speed products, OR replace copper with FTTP and new build FTTP appears without OR presence.

    Currently the pricing and market share war between ISPs and the varying levels of quality within an ISP mean you can’t make broad statements such as A is better than B. This may reduce going forward with FTTP and we focuses more on back haul capacity and other services but somehow I doubt it.
