ISP Zzoomm Boost UK FTTP Home Broadband Speeds for Free

Wednesday, September 1st, 2021 (6:20 am) - Score 1,800

UK ISP Zzoomm, which is currently in the process of building its own multi-gigabit speed Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network to reach 1 million premises across 85 UK towns by the end of 2025, has adopted symmetric speeds across all of their packages and boosted the underlying rates at no extra cost.

The provider, which is primarily backed by an initial investment of £100m from Oaktree Capital Management (here), is currently focusing upon semi-rural towns and parishes around parts of Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, North Yorkshire and Cheshire.

Until now the packages they offered were typically based around asymmetric speeds. For example, their entry-level 100Mbps plan for £29 per month on a 12-month term only gave customers an upload speed of just 10Mbps. But under the latest changes, that same package will now give you a speed of 150Mbps download and upload for the same price.

From September 1st, every Zzoomm service comes with the same download and upload speeds, also known as symmetrical broadband (Previously Match Power-Up). That means if you have 900Mbps download, you will also have 900Mbps upload. 2000Mbps down + 2000Mbps up,” said Zzoomm.

150Mbps Symmetric Speed

450Mbps Symmetric Speed

900Mbps Symmetric Speed

2000Mbps Symmetric Speed

    Have XGS-PON at disposal, will use I guess.

    How many customers are on their network now? It’s a wonder it took them this long to enable the symmetric capability.

  2. Matt says:

    It hasn’t “taken them this long” to enable it. It’s been available for ages at an extra £10 a month cost. Now obviously it’s free and included.

    1. Itchy Dog says:

      Awesome. Though someone needs to tell their web development team their headlines need a little tweak..oops


    2. A says:

      Charging £10pm extra for symmetrical feels a little scummy. I guess it is more a “how much are you willing to pay” think as most people care about the download speed more. With so many networks covering the same profitable areas the altnets do need to differentiate themselves, faster uploads is one way which is probably why zzoomm are including it free now.

    3. Damien says:


      Yeah– cause 2Gbps down and up for £99 is a rip off.

      I would have to pay £1080 a month to get that…. Some people don’t know they are born etc..

    4. Damien says:

      Sorry tell a lie.. I got it wrong..

      It’s actually this.. !


      Still I’d kill for £99 a month! (I pay for 3Gbps right now – and you can see the damage that does!)

    5. Randy says:

      Comparing a leased line to a home broadband service…

      Anyway, IMHO £10 a month extra for symmetric is so worth it. Most home users won’t give a damn and will go for the cheaper option but many tech/remote workers/content creators will jump at the chance to get symmetric. Myself included.

    6. Damien says:

      Thats because Randy – some of us CAN”T get any decent home service!

      So wind it in pal

    ZZoomm ssttuutteerr mmuucchh??

  4. Robin D'Arcy says:

    Where about sun Cheshire are they rolling out?

  5. NeilM says:

    I would be interested in that at £29. I get 200/25 from virgin at a discounted £31.

    The amount of time I actually need large download speeds is quite rare.

    Good value that package.

  6. Ad47uk says:

    That makes it better value, saying that the price was ok for 100 down, but 10 up was no better than I am getting now.
    Still got until Spring next year before they start laying the fibre up by me.
    I have still not decided what to do, plusnet have been reliable. I don’t really need the speed, 35Mb/s is fine for me.
