ISP Aquiss Discounts FTTP Broadband Switches for 4 Months

Thursday, March 26th, 2020 (9:18 am) - Score 706

UK ISP Aquiss has launched a new offer for consumers who already have an Openreach based Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ONT or active line installed in their property, which offers free activation (saving £100) and a large discount on the first 4 months of service (starting from £5 a month) if you migrate to them.

As usual new customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, a 12 month minimum contract term, 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 don’t include a wireless router in with their service (i.e. you have to use an existing one or buy a new router).

NOTE: Activating a previously stopped FTTP ONT (Optical Network Terminal) can take as little as 24 hours, while switching an active FTTP line to a new ISP usually takes under 10 working days.

The reason for not mentioning new installations above is because Openreach (BT) has effectively stopped most of those during the current COVID-19 crisis (here), although switching between FTTP ISPs on the same network does not require an engineer to enter your property and so can still proceed. Otherwise the discounts work out as follows:

Pure Fibre – Option 1 (36Mbps Down / 1.7Mbps Up)
PRICE: £5 a month for 4 months (£30 thereafter)

Pure Fibre – Option 2 (36Mbps Down / 7.5Mbps Up)
PRICE: £7 a month for 4 months (£32 thereafter)

Pure Fibre – Option 3 (72Mbps Down / 17Mbps Up)
PRICE: £9 a month for 4 months (£34 thereafter)

Pure Fibre – Option 4 (145Mbps Down / 26Mbps Up)
PRICE: £31 a month for 4 months (£56 thereafter)

    Considering most will be with BT, then why would a customer move for these tariffs unless you were really pushed financially, and even then BT also have much faster speeds on offer. Seems a little…. contrived?

      Indeed! – I mean Option 4 after 4 months is only £3 less than BT’s 910/115!

      @Oliver Given that our most popular package is our Option 1 packages (40/2) which works out at £21.66 per month over the contract period, this not only is good value, it works out cheaper than offerings that most people get from BT, comes with a 12 month contract (rather than 24 months from BT) and includes Static IPv4 as standard (a cost monthly option from BT).

      It’s not all about the speed and for a lot of consumers, they want choice other than BT Retail, they want a company that is approachable and accountable, but yes, for a lot of people right now, especially now, financially pushed is an issue for many.

      Contrived…hardly
