ISP Yayzi Broadband Launch 2.5Gbps Plan and Slash 1Gbps Price

Wednesday, Aug 30th, 2023 (11:53 am) - Score 4,960

UK ISP Yayzi Broadband, which mainly sells packages via Cityfibre’s national Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, has made a bold move today by scrapping their existing 150Mbps and 500Mbps packages in order to focus on a 1Gbps and new 2.5Gbps tier. But to compensate for this, they’ve introduced a huge price discount.

Just to recap. Yayzi previously sold their 150Mbps, 500Mbps and 1Gbps packages for £27, £33 and £39 per month respectively. All included a Wi-Fi 6 router, free installation and applied an 18-month minimum contract term. Customers could also optionally add various add-ons for an extra monthly charge, such as a Static IP address (£2), whole home mesh Wi-Fi (£8) or a monthly (30-day) rolling term (£6).

The latest change removes both their 150Mbps and 500Mbps packages from sale to new customers (existing subscribers are unaffected), leaving only their 1Gbps plan from the original line-up, which has in turn seen its price slashed from £39 to just £29 per month. This puts Yayzi’s gigabit-class package in the same price ballpark as toob, which runs both its own network and also sells via CityFibre for the same price point.

At the same time, Yayzi has now officially launched their new 2.5Gbps (symmetric speed) package, which regular readers will know is something they’ve been testing for a few months now (here and here). The package costs just £50 per month, but you’ll have to pay £99 (one-off) for the setup (partly because of the new router they’re bundling) and this also includes a Static IP address.

    Just put my postcode in and its only allowing 1GB/s. It says ” Upgradable to 2.5Gb when available”. When will I know when its going to be avaible?

    Also anyone know about the non pro version for £29, does this use CGNAT?

    1. Avatar photo Yayzi Broadband says:

      Hi Anthony,

      We’re expecting it to be available in a few weeks – We’re currently taking pre-orders on it just to deal with demand (router stock etc…)

      The standard 1Gb is CGNAT but you can add a static IP for £2 a month.

      I hope that helps!

    2. Avatar photo Anthony says:

      So am I correct in understanding if I sign up for the Pro 1GB/s version for £39. You will in the near future upgrade to 2.5GB/s for the same £39 per month? I ask as this news article says its £50 per month for 2.5GB/s?

    3. Avatar photo Yayzi Broadband says:

      If you sign up for the 1Gb Pro package, you’ll get the same router as supplied for the 2.5Gb package which means you’ll be able to upgrade to 2.5Gb when available (for free, no migration charges, and no new router needed) however the monthly charge will still be £50 a month – I hope that makes sense.

    4. Avatar photo XGS says:

      Doesn’t this product also require CityFibre to have upgraded the area to XGSPON too, Yayzi? Can’t get 2.5 in either direction let alone symmetric out of GPON.

    5. Avatar photo Yayzi Broadband says:

      It does, we’ve made the list available on the initial areas on the pre-order form – but the router would certainly be needed when 2Gb product rolls out in non-XGSPON areas, that’ll be 2Gb download and 1Gb upload.

      If you’re speaking for the company, can I ask if this is the same Yayzi whose accounts are nine months overdue at Companies House, andat the beginning of this year were under threat of a compulsory striking off order?

    7. Avatar photo Yayzi Broadband says:

      I can’t see where Yayzi Broadband Ltd accounts are overdue. They’re due to be filed next month.

    8. Avatar photo Anon says:

      I was thinking of Yayzi Group, which appears to have the same directors as Yayzi Broadband, and whose name suggests that it could be a parent company to Yayzi Broadband?


    9. Avatar photo Smiff says:

      Anon – unless you have something useful to add re the accounts, what’s your point? Companies have various complicated legal structures. What’s the relevance of the Group parent here? It’s likely just a holding company. Each individual company has its own legal personality. I work in local government. Our accounts are past the statutory deadline but does that change anything? No. I have an interest here because I’m also a fully qualified chartered accountant so tend to have an interest when people raise points about accounts (often without a detailed understanding of what discrete points are being raised).

      Would you care to explain your point?

    10. Avatar photo 4chAnon says:

      Out of curiosity Smiff, what are the consequences for being a tad overdue on company accounts filing?

    11. Mark-Jackson Mark Jackson says:

      As I understand it, Yayzi Group Limited ceased trading almost a year ago as that was for B2B interests. Yayzi Broadband Ltd., which is for B2C interests (the subject of this article), is by comparison 100% owned by LMG Group. So some of the people may be related, but it’s important not to confuse the two.

  2. Avatar photo Anthony says:

    If you are not in one of the listed areas on the Pre-order page. What is the chances of you getting 2.5GB/s in say the next year or two? I cannot believe CityFibre didn’t install the correct equipment to my street it was only installed a year and a half ago

    1. Avatar photo Yayzi Broadband says:

      That’s a good question – What I can say is if 2.5Gbps isn’t available you can be sure 2Gbps will be available however it’s not a symmetrical service due to GPON limitations

  3. Avatar photo Phil says:

    How on earth this ISP can afford 2.5Gbps symmetric speed for just £50 monthly charges? How?

    1. Avatar photo Liam says:

      Because it doesn’t really cost much more to provide it:)

    2. Avatar photo Andrew says:

      Because they’re probably providing it at cost or near to it, say it costs them £30, they charge £50 for it to keep it fair, unlike Virgin

    “The package costs just £50 per month, but you’ll have to pay £99 (one-off) for the setup (partly because of the new router they’re bundling) and this also includes a Static IP address.

    1. Nice to see anyone on CF can get it and not just people in a certai narea
    2. Anyone who whinges the above is expensive needs to give their head a wobble. it’s insanely good value if you need the speed!

    1. Avatar photo Phil says:

      Only if you live in cityfibre enabled area

    2. Avatar photo BTMan says:

      Yes you would be looking at about £700 a month + build costs to get that elsewhere there is no alt.net available.

  5. Avatar photo Anthony says:

    If you sign up for the regular (no pro) 1GBp/s service for £29. Can you upgrade to the 2.5GB service later down the road. And is it the same router you get or a different one?

    1. Avatar photo Anthony says:

      What is the difference between the two routers if they are not the same

    2. Avatar photo Jordan says:

      It says this on they webstite here is a screenshot, the pros get a different router with diff ports, its not the same as the non pro plan.


  6. Avatar photo Jordan says:

    the non pro has gigabit ports only, whilst the pro ones has 2.5gb ports.

    https://prnt.sc/UEBb34bIT3QI this is the non pro

    https://prnt.sc/dZZKJQUIc-Rp this is pro router

    1. Avatar photo BTMan says:


      Looks identical to my TP-Link AX3000 which I guess it is just different firmware – for a non pro option it’s still a very decent ISP bundled router!

    2. Avatar photo Josh says:

      I believe the Pro router is this (according to the first 2.5Gb article) which is even better because it has a a 2.5Gb LAN port too!!


  7. Avatar photo Carlconradw says:

    I live in Dulwich, London, and despite being one of London’s wealthier communities we have little or no FTTP to speak of. My max is 36Mbps. I would give my right hand for this. Openreach ignores us. Lucky people who have a choice of more than Virgin Media.

    1. Avatar photo BTMan says:

      “Lucky people who have a choice of more than Virgin Media.”

      Lucky people who have a choice of Virgin Media. Try 12mbps ADSL and that’s it in 2023.

    2. Avatar photo Sonic says:

      I’m in a similar situation. VDSL only (but I get around 70 Mbps). No Virgin Media, not a single FTTP provider. Giganet may arrive at some point in the next few years but nothing concrete. Openreach will not deploy here. And I live in a city!

      It’s depressing when one half of the country not only has FTTP (with some locations having a choice of multiple providers), but are now being offered a second gen product while we are stuck with technologies from 15 years ago. Pathetic.

  8. Avatar photo Jamie says:

    So the pro option router provides 1x 2.5gbps WAN port and 8 Gigabit Lan ports. SO how am I going to get wired 2.5gbps speeds?.

    1. Avatar photo Josh says:

      The Pro router I believe is this https://service-provider.tp-link.com/wifi-router/ex820v/

      That’s according to the first 2.5Gb article. It has a 2.5Gb WAN and 2.5Gb LAN.

    2. Avatar photo mike says:

      It’s confusing because there are two AX6000 routers



      One has a 2.5Gb LAN port, one doesn’t. Yayzi don’t make it clear which one they send.

  9. Avatar photo XGS says:

    Great to see more multigig products. Hopefully Virgin Media O2 will join the party sooner rather than later with Openreach following.

    The products aren’t going to sell by the bucket load but not really the point. It’s fun, it’s profitable, it grabs headlines and enthuses.

    1. Avatar photo Andrew says:

      I doubt it, Virgin could have installed FTTP, as it is available in my street, they still used the Hybrid coax…. All I want is symetrical speed virgin, it’s not difficult

  10. Avatar photo Rich says:

    @Yazi I have my own equipment (ccr2004-1g-12s+2xs) that is more than capable of 2.5g. I don’t need a new router. Can I avoid the £99 fee?

    1. Avatar photo Josh says:

      I asked this question to them and the answer is yes! If you bring your own router there is no set up cost, which is awesome!

  11. Avatar photo Tarek says:

    When southside Glasgow?

    1. Avatar photo yeehaa says:

      They don’t appear to be offering their service in any CityFibre areas in Scotland.

  12. Avatar photo mike says:

    I don’t understand the difference between Pro and not Pro. Pro has a static IP but you can add that to non Pro for £2 per month, so what makes up the other £8 difference?

    1. Avatar photo Anthony says:

      I was thinking that also. Another point, go with Pro you have to pay £100 for the router. Go non pro you get the router for free.

  13. Avatar photo FingerlessGloves says:

    Does anyone know if the static IP goes presented directly to the router or do they apply it on their CG-NAT stuff? I assume the static is presented directly to the router via DHCP, as it would be any ISP not doing CG-NAT

    1. Avatar photo Anthony says:

      I think they’ve stopped replying. What I was curious on top of your question. Do they support IPv6 to get over CGNAT?

  14. Avatar photo Neon says:

    Is it worth taking a punt on Yayzi? Their Trustpilot reviews suggest very poor customer service and people not receiving their routers, although recent reviews seem more positive. But that £29 deal is very tempting.
