Rural ISP Wessex Internet Cuts UK Full Fibre Broadband Prices

Alternative network (altnet) provider Wessex Internet, which has built Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based broadband services across rural parts of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire and Wiltshire, is set to launch a new range of faster services and cheaper pricing on 1st April 2021 following a major package refresh.

The new range, which will be available to both new and existing “full fibre” (FTTP) customers, includes the introduction of faster upload speeds, cheaper prices for home users and a brand-new range of small business packages.

The biggest change of all involves the introduction of a gigabit (900Mbps+) package and a new Mesh WiFi style service (Total WiFi). In terms of the latter, the Wessex Internet WiFi promise is a free subscription to the new Total WiFi service (it’s only free on their Full Fibre 350 and 900 plans) and one additional hub for those who cannot get at least 15Mbps in every room of their house.

All packages come with a broadband router and unlimited usage, except their entry-level one that has a cap of 100GB – for those who only need the basics. A 12-month minimum contract term is also applicable.

Full Fibre Lite
100Mbps download
15Mbps upload
100GB monthly data allowance

PRICE: £29 per month

Full Fibre 100
100Mbps download
30Mbps upload
Unlimited data allowance

PRICE: £44 per month

Full Fibre 350
350Mbps download
125Mbps upload
Unlimited data allowance

PRICE: £59 per month

Full Fibre 900
900Mbps download
300Mbps upload
Unlimited data allowance

PRICE: £84 per month

We should add that each package also charges a one-off activation fee of £49, while the installation fee is merely listed as POA (we assume that means ‘Price on Application’). Wessex Internet’s website states that they charge an unsubsidised rate of £350 inc. VAT per standard installation, but the rate they quote will be lower than this (particularly if gigabit broadband vouchers have been harnessed). Still, we’d prefer a little more clarity.

Hector Gibson Fleming, Managing Director, said:

“We’re always looking at ways to improve our products and service as we grow and these exciting new packages, available to everyone across our network, are the latest example of how we are continually working to give rural communities a better deal. We have made this announcement alongside the backdrop of significant growth within the company that means we can give an even better offer to ever more properties across our target area.”

Admittedly their top 900Mbps package is fairly expensive, although this isn’t too surprising given the provider’s focus on remote rural areas, which are much more costly to tackle than urban or sub-urban communities (doing such areas on a commercial basis like this is quite challenging and the price reflects that).

The new full fibre packages seem to be live today for new customers, so we assume that the 1st April 2021 date must reflect their availability for existing customers.
