ISP Aquiss Finally Launch UK Ultrafast FTTP Broadband Package

Monday, January 6th, 2020 (9:54 am) - Score 1,612

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has today announced the launch of their first “ultrafast broadband” (100Mbps+) class package, which is based off Openreach’s (BT) rapidly growing Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network. Until now they only offered FTTP via the slower “superfast” tiers (max speeds of 40Mbps or 80Mbps).

The new ‘Pure Fibre – Option 4‘ package offers an average peak time download speed of 145Mbps (26Mbps upload) and costs £56 inc. VAT per month, although the first three months of service are being offered at a reduced price of £40 on a 12 month contract term. A £60 one-off activation fee for new installs is also charged.

NOTE: The 145Mbps package is based off Openreach’s 160Mbps max download speed (30Mbps upload) tier.

As usual new customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, enhanced care, a static IPv4 address and static IPv6 addresses (/56). Being FTTP there’s no need for telephone line rental, although unlike a fair few other providers Aquiss doesn’t include a wireless router in with their service, but you can use an existing device (it’s wise to get one that can handle the connection properly with good WiFi etc.).

    Whilst it’s good that Aquiss have released this new package, it is more than two of their competitors* 160/30 package price and has stopped me immediately upgrading…

    * Competitors who also offer static IPs

    • Of course that’s what you get in a competitive market, choice. You can weigh up all of the factors like price, service quality, reliability, support and then make a decision. Usually paying a lot less means less money going toward other aspects of service, with few exceptions.

      Thanks for your comments Victoria.

      Our 160/30 based package have been introduced in a similar fashion to how our superfast FTTP packages were, by easing the product in and balancing this against our main focus of network impact. Quality of product comes before price, that’s always been the Aquiss way. However, your comments are noted and will be fed into project development across the business.

      Can you name the competitors please? I’m finally in the market for FTTP, but hardly anyone offers FTTP, and every package I find is ~50/m or more for a measly 130/30 🙁

      I pay about £25/m to plusnet for 80/20 FTTC just, so it’s quite a hike for not much extra.

      IDNet have been suffering classic congestion problems as well as Zen according to correspondents on ThinkBroadband. Perhaps we could discuss this on the ISPReview best providers 2020 thread. Along with the merits of Aquiss reviews this year. Or perhaps for some strange reason we can’t 😉

      Hmm, I just checked, and they are basically the same price?

    I noticed that there is a big rise in Aquiss reviews since someone pointed out that they had fallen in rank. I smell a rat …
