Broadband ISP WightFibre, which is currently investing £35m to rollout a new 1Gbps Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) network to over 60,000 of the 70,000 homes on the Isle of Wight (South Coast of Hampshire) by the end of 2021, has today become the latest UK provider to launch a Whole Home WiFi service using Plume’s platform.

New customers looking to join the UK broadband ISP division of John Lewis are being offered a “free” Google Nest Hub device alongside their “fibre broadband” (FTTC) packages, some of which have also had a further Black Friday discount to their monthly prices for the first 12 months of service.

Many homes and businesses in the St Johns suburb of Worcester have been left without access to both broadband and phone services for several days, which occurred after criminals ripped up two of Openreach’s (BT) core underground copper telecoms cables from the ground (aka – Metal Theft) on Tuesday.

Openreach (BT) plan to launch a new symmetric “low speed” 500Kbps (0.5Mbps) tier on their UK Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network, which might seem odd until you realise that it’s part of their transition away from the old phone services (WLR / PSTN). Elsewhere FTTP on Demand is being trialled in apartment blocks.

ISP Sky Broadband (Comcast) appears to be offering their Anytime UK calls add-on at no extra cost (usually +£10 extra per month) for the first 18 months of service, when new customers take out one of their ADSL (11Mbps), FTTC (59Mbps) or G.fast (145Mbps) based broadband and phone bundles (with or without TV).

Last week saw UK ISP TalkTalk discount the price of their 38Mbps (average peak time speed) “Faster Fibre” FTTC broadband and phone bundle to £21.95 and this week they’ve decided to do exactly the same with their “Superfast Fibre” 67Mbps package, which oddly makes them both the same price for the first 18 months of service.

UK ISP BT has spent big on football content again for their BTSport TV service and have signed a new deal worth around £400m per year (roughly the same as they paid last time), which gives them the rights to all 420 games of the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League until 2024.

The latest results (Q1 FY20) from TalkTalk have revealed that the UK ISP still hasn’t sealed a deal to sell FibreNation and its rollout of a new “full fibre” broadband network, although they did see strong take-up of their FTTC packages and confirmed plans to launch ultrafast FTTP via Openreach “before the end of the calendar year.“

15th Nov 2019 (112 Comments)

The UK Labour Party has set out their broadband pledge for the General Election on 12th December 2019, which includes a commitment to invest £20.3bn into rolling out “full fibre” (FTTP) by 2030, nationalising Openreach (BT) into public ownership and if that wasn’t quite radical enough then access to this will be.. FREE.

A new report from Global Wireless Solutions has benchmarked the 5G mobile performance of EE, Vodafone and O2 UK’s networks in London, which overall found that they were delivering download throughputs some 3-4x faster than 4G, although the latency times of 35-40ms weren’t much better than 4G and a far cry from the sub-10ms goal.

The latest UK ISP to join the early Black Friday 2019 sale fun is Virgin Media, which until 2nd December 2019 have heavily discounted the prices on some of their broadband bundles. For example, new customers can pick-up their 100Mbps broadband and phone package from just £25 per month for 12 months (£49 thereafter).

Residents in part of the large South Lanarkshire (Scotland) village of Drumsagard have complained, perhaps unfairly, after contractors working to extend UK ISP Virgin Media’s fibre broadband network – Keir Group – reportedly left the pavements looking like an “eyesore,” except it looks mostly fair to us.

Good news for customers of Sky Broadband, specifically those who previously liked to use their own third-party Domain Name System (DNS) settings before the UK ISP broke that ability when they introduced early support for the Sky Buddy App in April 2019 (here). You’ll soon be able to use third-party DNS servers again!

Fibre optic network builder Nextgenaccess has signed a new 20-year concession agreement with High Speed 1, which should support a track-side rail deployment of new fibre to help bring “essential ultra-fast broadband” within easy reach of Kent local authorities, ISPs, mobile operators and business communities (at no cost to taxpayer).

Low cost ISP Plusnet has become the latest provider to tweak their existing discounts a little lower ahead of the annual Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales event. The main bonus is an included offer of £75 cashback on every package and a slight reduction in monthly price over their prior promotions.
