UK ISP Grayshott Gigabit Launch Cheaper Broadband Social Tariff

Broadband ISP Grayshott Gigabit, which is deploying a new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across rural parts of East Hampshire, the Surrey Hills and surrounding areas, recently became the latest UK provider to launch a cheaper social tariff – called ‘Connect‘ – for those on certain benefits.

At present the operator, which seems to be adopting a demand-led approach and harnessing the Government’s Gigabit Voucher scheme (i.e. at least 30% of households per area need to pre-register for a build to take place), is busy deploying across homes and business in several locations, such as around the Grayshott, Hindhead and Beacon Hill communities.

The good news is that, despite being a much smaller ISP than most, Grayshott Gigabit has still been able to launch its own social tariff. The aptly named ‘Connect‘ plan is an unlimited broadband-only service that is available to those on Universal Credit (with zero earnings), Pension Credit, Income support and various other benefits.

The ‘Connect’ package is only available to customers who take one of these:

· Income Support

· Pension Credit

· Universal Credit with zero earnings

· Personal Independence Payment

· Attendance Allowance

· Care Home residents and Lifeline customers who are referred to us via Social Services

· Care Leavers

· Employment and Support Allowance (EAS) (Income Related)

Customers on this plan will pay just £20 per month for a 100Mbps connection speed with free activation, and this price will remain the same for as long as the customer is in receipt of financial support. Connect runs on a 6-month minimum term, with a flexible 30-day rolling contract thereafter. Further details can be found here. The package actually launched in July, but it doesn’t appear as if we were notified about it at the time.

    Of course they are not allowed to stop you leaving during the 6 months – however that’s not as bad as say BT and their 18-24 month tactics even when on basic service

    As above, good on them
