Netomnia-Engineers-Talking

UK ISP YouFibre has announced that the first customers can now connect to their new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband network in the port and market town of Kings Lynn (Norfolk), which is being built by network partner Netomnia.

Customers can typically expect to pay from £22 per month on an 18-month term for their unlimited 50Mbps package, which rises to just £50 if you want their top 1000Mbps plan. All of their packages include unlimited usage, symmetrical download and upload speeds, a wireless router, 24/7 UK based support, free installation, and a commitment to no price-rises when within contract.

Ryan Battle, MD of YouFibre, said: “The broadband industry has overcharged and underdelivered for too long, we want to break the mould by providing a faster connection and a better service at lower prices. Everyone should have affordable access to fast internet, so a whole household can seamlessly work, live and play online. We’ve seen a real appetite for better broadband in Kings Lynn and look forward to getting many more customers connected to the network soon.”

    Very interesting! Even at full price, that appears better than most players such as BT, Vodafone, TalkTalk on Openreach non symmetrical? And there was a half price offer making it £25 for 1000Mbps.

    What is baffling is that Openreach delivered FTTP to many of the areas in the immediate vicinity of these places MUCH EARLIER. Indeed, a long time ago, but the pricing by ISPs is insane for the non symmetrical 900Mbps product (started off at £80 back then and has maybe come down to £49-55 albeit on a long contract).

    The pricing disparity across the country is remarkable, not only different areas of the UK, but if you zoom into individual areas as well. One can only hope that prices like £25-30 for 900/900 that some people can get becomes the norm for the whole country.

    1. James Bond says:

      * And those areas nearby covered by Openreach first won’t be covered by this new network.

      You seem pretty fixated on gigabit FTTP pricing. You’ve been commenting on it for upwards of a year.

      Plenty of other factors besides price, especially at the very high end, and debatable how much room there is for Openreach pricing to drop much more due to competitive considerations. The wholesale pricing is still somewhat higher than CityFibre but cannot be allowed lower unless CF raise prices.

      UK pricing can’t go too low due to the advertising requirements. ISPs must have a fair amount of overhead on their networks.

      At a time when inflation is making other things more expensive seems a bit optimistic expecting pricing to drop while usage continues to increase and cost per Mb of network hardware isn’t really dropping either.

      Many altnets are probably loss-leading to gain customers. More likely to see some of their prices go up than Openreach pricing drop further after Equinox.

    This company is running too quick to put it in.
    Vodaphone was doing the same thing and not delivering the proper goods and got balls up in the first place.

      Don’t understand. What are you saying?

    2. Gary says:

      To make sure it work properly ie proper speeds.

    My friend near Aldi in King’s Lynn already got this and he is stunned by the results of download speeds/upload, everything works without issues compared to what we’ve used in the last 10 years in UK.
    For myself in South Lynn, King’s Lynn they said it is not available and not known when it will be. I am with vadafone and struggle to get some pretty much decent speeds, and believe me in 2022, the speeds that UK providers offered until now, was found back in 2005 probably. Europe and most middle part of the Europe have the fastest and most stable internet connections from all europe. Basically they all got Super Fast True FFTP Fiber from early 2006 and insane speeds for arround £10-£15 for High Speed Deals.
