Onestream ISP Cuts 17Mbps FTTC Broadband Price to £13.99

Friday, November 22nd, 2019 (10:42 am) - Score 1,234

UK ISP Onestream has today cut the price of their somewhat unique 17Mbps (1.5Mbps upload) FTTC based broadband and phone line rental package for Black Friday, which takes it from an already low point of £17.99 to just £13.99 per month on a 12 month contract term (£27.99 thereafter).

As usual new customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, an included wireless router (£9.99 for delivery) and phone line rental (standard call rates). Apparently it will be available to order at this price until 2nd December 2019 and yes, this is an FTTC and not ADSL based plan (the ISP has a bit of an unusual proposition).

However at this price point it’s difficult to see how the provider will be able to generate a reasonable profit, which can sometimes have a negative impact upon service quality and support.

    Well they do at least seem to offer ADSL if you can’t get FTTC – their checker suggested ADSL at £14.99pm (£24.99 after 12 months) for me.

      With any luck, we will never have free broadband. It’s an idea rooted in lunacy.

      Dave, it’s a good thing we don’t have free healthcare – that’s an idea rooted in lunacy.

    • Even Healthcare isn’t completely free for working folk (my dentist trips and doctor prescriptions still cost money etc.). However comparing broadband to the NHS is a fairly loopy comparison. A single urgent operation could make a person bankrupt or dead without the NHS and most people like living healthy lives.

      Broadband is more and more of a utility but it’s rooted as a commercial industry, not a public service, and you won’t die without it. Undoing that is not a magical fix for the country’s connectivity challenges, it would simply slow the rollout of full fibre and spread the financial burden on to the public sector. Hundreds of ISPs would collapse, leaving little in the way of consumer choice and the government with massive control over more of your data.

    Not worth the pain and aggravation, nor the months without broadband , and the terrible customer service

    haha this is actually slower than my ADSL line at 20.5Mbps! What a pointless product.

      We don’t all live within a few hundred meters of the phone exchange.

      ADSL here runs at 1.3 Mb.

      Average ADSL throughput is about 10Mb.

      I see their point. No idea how they can make money from this, though.

    Looks like the party’s over. Today, all their products are upped by £10 and the contract is 24 months.
