ISP Aquiss UK Reduces Ultrafast FTTP Home Broadband Price

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has reduced the standard monthly price of their 150Mbps (26Mbps upload) “Pure Fibre” package from £56 to £48 per month on a 12 month contract term. A special offer is also running that gives you the first three months of service for £40 per month.

The packages are all based off Openreach’s (BT) rapidly growing Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, which currently covers 2.75 million UK premises and should reach 4.5 million by March 2021 before eventually reaching their £12bn ambition for 20 million by around the mid to late 2020s (2025 – 2030).

As usual all customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, enhanced care, free activation, a static IPv4 address and static IPv6 addresses (/56).

    I would have been tempted, but With BT currently offering 150/30 (fibre100) for £29.99, I can’t justify the extra for a similar speed!

    1. Avatar Mark says:

      I can’t find the fibre 100 for that price it’s still £39.99 on their webpage.

    2. Avatar Mark says:

      Never mind Rex it’s been posted further down.

      My next question is how would I go about getting this deal. I’m a new customer 10 days into my FTTP installation, I tried using live chat to get it done but the CS rep said they couldn’t do anything and I’d have to call. Does this sound right to anyone as I have my doubts she wasn’t just fobbing me off.

      Edit: not installation I’ve been live for that long.

    Do you have a link for where BT are offering fibre 100 for £29.99 – I can only see it listed on their site at £39.99

    1. Avatar occasionally factual says:

      Go to hotdealsuk and search for “BT Full Fibre 100 Mbps for £29.99”

  3. Avatar Smithers says:

    Much obliged to all – the last link shows the £29.99 “offer” (albeit it as a 2 year contract)

    Yikes – £15 pm for unlimited voice calls seems rather steep when my mobile provider (PlusNet) gives me the same for £6 pm

    Does anyone know whether its possible to migrate your landline to a third party VOIP provider and ditch BT (who as part of the FTTP sign up process seem very keen to capture your phone line – no doubt after the call revenues!).

    My thought process was to park my long standing POTS home phone number with a VOIP provider for incoming calls (Andrews and Arnold will do this for £1.20 pm line rental) so I could still receive incoming calls on my home phone, but otherwise use my mobile outgoing.

    That said there appears to be quite a lot happening with FTTP package prices/speeds changing so it may be better to sit on the fence for 6 months and see that happens.

    Hmm … decisions, decisions

    1. Avatar Stan says:

      You could have 500 minutes for £5 per month for landline calls with BT, then it depends whether you need more than an average of 16 minutes every day.

    2. Avatar Stan says:

      …or, if you’re not making any calls on your landline don’t have a call package, then you just have the £29.99 fibre cost which includes line rental.

    3. Avatar John says:

      You can’t migrate your landline number to BT FTTP then port the number to VOIP.
      This ceases the broadband as number ports actually port the entire service.

      This is actually the case with all ISP’s.

      OpenReach offer a “renumber with number export” service for this but BT don’t seem to support it.
      I know AAISP support this.

      You would need to sign up to BT as a new customer with a new landline number and then port the number from your existing provider.

      If you’re mildly technical then Twilio is your friend, they have a number porting service which is similar to mobile phones, but a bit more form based, (do this before you switch to FTTP) and then you can provision VOIP/SIP calling once the number is ported into Twilio. At that point you can safely terminate any old phone/broadband service and take up FTTP knowing that your number is safely independant and currently working (after migration into twilio).

    Thanks for the further clarifications.
