Gigaclear UK Launch Summer Sale on Rural FTTP Broadband

Full fibre ISP Gigaclear has announced that new customers in rural areas covered by their 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network can now benefit from a significant discount on their first 18 months of service, which has been introduced as part of their special Summer Sale until 14th August.

New customers can potentially save up £390 by using the code SUMMER100 at checkout (this varies slightly by package – see below). For example, somebody who takes their top 900Mbps (symmetric speed) package will pay just £59 per month on an 18 month term instead of the usual £79. On top of that the standard installation and activation service have also been made free (previously you had to pay at least £30).

Otherwise all packages include unlimited usage, a promise of no mid-contract price increases and you get a decent Linksys router (with the bonus of Mesh WiFi on their top 300Mbps and 900Mbps tiers).

We note that their 30Mbps, 100Mbps and 300Mbps packages have all been reduced to the same monthly price, which is a bit odd but that’s how they present it on their website. One other irritation is that for some reason you can only get these deals by ordering via the phone as they provide no on-line sign-up option on the offer page (here).

    Well except for the “BUY NOW” link at the bottom of the page. 🙂

    (probably added after this story was published)

    Gigaclear service has been patchy of late with lots of outages reported on their status pages. They also seem to be migrating to another network management company as fixed IP addresses have been changing (pre-notified to customers) and also their DHCP lease is now 5 minutes for some strange reason from the previous 6 hours (this means they are getting renewal requests from all customers every 2 1/2 minutes). 5 minute lease on a fixed IP address is very odd.

      Try following that ‘Buy Now’ link through and you’ll see.

      If true then it’s quite strange with Gigaclear’s short DHCP leases.

      The typical DHCP lease time default setting on most servers is 24 hours.

    3. Avatar Jonathan says:

      Typically you reduce lease times when you are anticipating changing things, so things pick up the new settings as quickly as possible.

    I just love how 100mbps and 300mbps are both just qualified as “Ultrafast”. Which IMHO is as stupid as calling 30mbps “superfast” (when in 2020 30mbps has absolutely nothing superfast about it.)

    I honestly think the ISP’s need to switch to graphics card manufacturer levels of naming their respective services because it’d be just as easy to understand! 🙂

    They would gain more customers if they actually extended their network – their build rate is glacial. There is still no sign of any work in my area – although I have heard rumours that another altnet is starting a build nearby so Gigaclear may be beaten to it.

    I wish they would finish out area, its been years and they dug up the road over two years ago, sacked contractors and now in review, I would love to sign up and so would others in the area.
