London ISP Community Fibre Tweaks Prices – Adds 24 Month Term

London-focused broadband ISP CommunityFibre has refreshed their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) packages in the city by adding the new option of a 24 month minimum contract term, while at the same time tweaking some of their prices to be higher under the older 12 month term.

At present the provider is working to roll-out their own 1000Mbps+ capable “full fibre” network to cover more than 500,000 premises by the end of 2022, which is being fuelled by an investment pot of around £90m from private investors and Government backed schemes. So far they’ve already built to cover more than 100,000 premises (mostly large apartment blocks, such as social housing) and have plans tabled for 370,000.

Until now customers generally had the choice between taking packages on a 12 month term or taking their more expensive 30 day (monthly) option. But this week the provider has also introduced a new 24 month term, which adopts the price point of their previous 12 month plans for most packages.

Otherwise CF continues to be one of the cheapest UK full fibre providers, although their service availability remains confined to parts of London.

    Have you seen Gigafast’s new pricing @Mark, it’s more expensive now.
    100Mbps £28 (was £28)
    200Mbps £33 (was £28)
    500Mbps £42 (was £38)
    900Mbps £52 (was £48)

      Yes but Vodafone tend to play around with their prices like that quite a lot, so it’s difficult to know what their baseline is.

    I want Ofcom to BANNED 18 & 24 months. I hate long term contract!

      How about no, 24 months & 18 months contracts are cheapest entries or people who want good cheap internet, otherwise everything that ISPs provide, or offer will be expensive. I do not think you slept or thought about that did you?

      What Community Fibre is doing with its pricing seems very reasonable to me. It offers contracts with a range of durations and incentivises longer durations with lower monthly prices. As a consumer this gives me choice whilst giving the supplier a reasonable chance of making money. I see no problem with it offering 24 month contracts at a £5 per month discount over the life of the contract compared to a 30 day contract.

      If you don’t like lengthy contract terms then sign up with a provider like CF that offers shorter ones, you just need to accept that you’re likely to have to pay a premium in return for the shorter duration.

    Not so much a price tweak as a price rise, then.

    Still good value, though, and I’m happy with CF having had the service for about six weeks now.

    Static IP costs a fortune with Community Fibre unfortunately.
    Only good if you can live with CGNAT.
