ISP KCOM Boosts Speeds on UK FTTP Home Broadband Packages

People connecting to KCOM’s gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire will be pleased to note that the ISP will today launch a new range of packages with faster download and upload speeds. The standard prices have also been tweaked (some are cheaper, some are not).

On the surface KCOM’s new home broadband packages will continue to attach an 18-month minimum contract term, as well as unlimited usage and a bundled wireless router.

The main differences with the new plans are thus in their names, as well as how much they cost and the speeds they provide. Upload speeds are given a particularly welcome boost.

NOTE: All the following packages currently benefit from the first 6 months of service being offered at only £25 per month. Speeds are an average (median).

Old vs New KCOM Packages

OLD: Superfast Unlimited Fibre (75Mbps Down / 20Mbps Up) – £42 PM
NEW: Full fibre 100 (100Mbps / 30Mbps) – £39.99 PM

OLD: Superfast Plus Unlimited Fibre (200Mbps Down / 35Mbps Up) – £46 PM
NEW: Full fibre 300 (300Mbps / 75Mbps) – £49.99 PM

OLD: Ultrafast Unlimited Fibre (400Mbps Down / 35Mbps Up) – £50 PM
NEW: Full fibre 500 (500Mbps / 100Mbps) – £59.99 PM

OLD: Gigafast Unlimited Fibre (900Mbps Down / 50Mbps Up) – £79 PM
NEW: Full fibre 900 (900Mbps / 180Mbps) – £69.99 PM

    Or to put it another way: at the £50 per month price point they’ve *reduced* the download speed from 400M to 300M, albeit increasing upload from 35M to 75M.

    At least you get a bill reduction of 1p per month to compensate.

      Not realy fair to nit pick at that. The good far outways the bad here.

    High praise for this move, I’d be over the moon if i was in their coverage area.

    Released these sooner than I expected (they were already on the wholesale price list).

    There seem to be a few more packages they don’t mention on the site, I’d guess they can probably be order on the phone.

    Full Fibre 175 (175Mbps / 50Mbps) – £44.99 PM
    Full Fibre 400 (400Mbps / 80Mbps) – £54.99 PM
    Full Fibre 750 (750Mbps / 150Mbps) – £59.99 PM

    They’re now pushing existing customers onto these plans regardless of whether they want them or not.

    Old packages are being ‘Retired’
