Broadband ISP Aquiss Introduce CityFibre Based FTTP Packages

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has this evening announced the launch of their first home broadband packages based off CityFibre’s national Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network (here), which will complement their existing range of Openreach-based services.

The provider, which will shortly be celebrating their 18th year of trading, are initially only introducing two packages – a 150Mbps (average speed) entry-level tier for £38 per month (£19 for the first three months of service) and a 900Mbps option for £42 per month (£21 for the first three months of service).

NOTE: CityFibre aspires to cover up to 8 million UK premises (funded by c.£2.4bn in equity, c.£4.9bn debt and c.£800m of BDUK subsidy) – c.30% of the UK – by the end of 2025 (here). The network currently covers 3.5 million UK premises (3.2m as Ready for Service).

All packages include symmetric service speeds, unlimited usage, a 12-month minimum contract term, a pledge of no mid-contract price rises, free activation, a static IPv4 address and static IPv6 addresses (/56). The catch is that new customers are expected to supply their own broadband router, which is not included.

    They seem to be purposely positioning this as a home service, is that deliberate since CityFibre differentiate which premises are homes and which are businesses when deciding on the ISPs that can service each.

    “The catch is that new customers are expected to supply their own broadband router, which is not included”

    That really isn’t a catch…….

      How so? The average customer will need a router and will not have one, like us nerds do.

    2. Mark-Jackson Mark Jackson says:

      The reality today is that not including a router with your broadband package has become the exception, rather than the rule.

      aquiss’s customer base well may be of the kind that doesn’t want one & that’s why they’ve gone that way, but as a general point:

      a freebie device that works perfectly well for 99.9% of users and use cases is more attractive than asking users to supply their own, which might not work as well and is a support hassle for most ISPs.

      simply isn’t the case that ISP=always bad and DIY=always good.

    They now brand their services as “Pure Fibre”, “City Fibre” or “Hybrid Fibre”:

    I just recently joined as a new customer and noticed my Dream Machine picks up my WAN connection as CityFibre? I’m connected via FTTP Openreach ONT.

      Yes, Aquiss use Entanet/Cityfibre LNS equipment and IP address blocks for their Openreach services.

      So, erm, what does Aquiss do? Presumably more than just the billing?
