NOW Slash 63Mbps Broadband and Anytime UK Calls to GBP22

Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 (9:42 am) - Score 1,440

Sky’s sibling UK ISP and TV streaming service, NOW (NOW Broadband), has today discounted the price of their Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) based “Super Fibre” (63Mbps) package, which comes with inclusive anytime UK phone calls, to just £22 per month for the length of its 12-month minimum contract term.

As usual customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, a bundled wireless router, a 12-month minimum contract term, 19Mbps upload speeds, phone line rental and free anytime calls to UK landline and mobile numbers (anytime calls usually cost £8 extra per month). But take note that there’s a one-off £5 postage fee for the router.

After 12 months, standard pricing will apply (currently £35pm for Super Fibre and £8pm for Anytime Calls), although you can choose to go back to standard call rates in order to avoid the cost of anytime calls (most of us don’t use our home phone lines much now anyway). A “no contract” (monthly rolling term) option also exists, but that attracts a £60 one-off setup fee.

    Brilliant deal, shows how I am being ripped off by BT paying £40.35 for similar speeds, shame I am stuck in a contract with BT until next February.

    1. Anthony Goodman says:

      See if there has been any mention of price changes on any part of BT service, call costs etc. There have been a load of price hikes during the lockdown with almost all ISPs. You should therefore be able to use that to break your contract with them and leave without a penality. Obviously you need to phone them up and get them to agree to this before switching elsewhere.

  2. Buggerlugz says:

    Is there really anything at all “super” let alone “fibre” about a product that delivers only 63Mbps in 2021?

    1. Chris Edwards says:

      63MB should be more than ample for an average house day to day. Granted there are higher speeds out there but I suspect a lot of the time customers equipment can’t even handle that throughout speed anyway

      As for some of the higher speed plans most only guarantee about half of what’s advertised anyway in the small print for example Virgin

  3. Scott says:

    Feels like a loss leader.
    Good for the consumer who is happy to switch services and accept the risk

  4. Anthony Goodman says:

    Been with Now Broadband for 4 years not had a single issue with them outside of their not too great bundled router, but I now use a PFsense router matched with a Zyxel VMG1312-B1OA router setup in bridge mode. In terms of the statements about speed. Until FTTP comes we are dependant on how far you live from your cabinet for speed. All I can get is 35meg in my street the same for all of my relatives. So this is perfect for people like me until CityFibre finish their rollout.

    You are very wrong about Virgin

    I have Virgin Gig1 and a nearly get 2Gig down and 52mb up

    1. JP says:

      Your wrong about Virgin to be honest and Virgin would agree with that.

    It’s actually a pretty bad deal, especially if you keep anytime calls after 12 months. It’s good value for 12 months at £22, including free calls.

    But, after this point, they will charge you an extra £21! Nearly double the cost, madness. It reminds me of Talktalk, it was the main reason I switched to another provider. They are clearly ripping off existing customers on calls.

    They are doing internet packages on the cheap, they won’t pay to transfer your landline phone number either. It’s basically the same as Sky internet I believe (using their infrastructure).

    ISPs like Cuckoo charge you the same rate of £30 every month, I much prefer this (but no included anytime calls unfortunately).

    1. Craig says:

      What are Cuckoo like as an ISP? I haven’t heard of them before, are they new etc?

    2. JP says:

      Cool, so what your saying is, its a great offer and that once the contract ends the price goes up….. SHOCKING…. it’s like all the other providers then.

      So Now Broadband bad because, 12 month contract as standard compared to 18-24 months, no contract option still gets the offer and only costs additional £60 activation fee, free unlimted calls are not mandatory to be taken with package either….

    3. Anthony Goodman says:

      Yes but at the end of the 12months you just go into another 12 month deal contract with them. And the good thing about NowBrodadband unlike Plusnet who I used to be with prior and they were infuriating. Plusnet would say on renewal “no that deal is just for new customers only, you can only take this pretty shoddy deal on a new 12months contract as you are an existing customer” whereas NowBroadband will let you into any deal. So if next year they have a deal for this same service for £20. You can take that up as your new 12months deal.

  7. anon446464 says:

    @JP – Don’t know why you defend this just because ” like all the other providers then”.

    Some providers like Cuckoo Broadband don’t require you to have a contract, you just pay £30 a month and leave if/when you want to.

    1. Fab says:

      Cuckoo also charges you a £60 setup fee for their 30 days monthly contract so does NOW as an option if you don’t want to take their 12 months contract.

    2. JP says:

      Thank you Fab.
