Octaplus 2024 UK broadband ISP

Hull-based UK ISP and Pay TV provider Octaplus, which sells services to consumers via various alternative full fibre broadband networks (e.g. MS3, CityFibre and FullFibre Limited), has today confirmed that they’ve just added Freedom Fibre’s network in the North West of England to that list.

Freedom Fibre’s Head of B2B, Lee Sutch, said: “The team at Freedom Fibre are excited to be partnering with such a customer-centric internet service provider. Partnering with Octaplus is a great opportunity to work with connectivity resellers to deliver our industry leading XGS-PON network to homes and businesses across the North West and provide value to customers who want this service.”

Freedom Fibre, which recently merged with VX FIBER (here), was originally backed by £111m from Equitix and has been working to cover parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Shropshire in England and North Wales. The operator previously aspired to cover 2 million UK premises and has so far reached 300,000 (27th Mar 2024) and rising.

    What does this mean exactly? From their website:

    No mid-contracts surprises
    Price remains the same till the end of contract. *Flat annual CPI increase of 3.9% applies*

    How many things can be wrong with a company name of 8 (including space) characters?

    “…with VX[sic] FIBER[sic]…” Where V=5 X=10 V is smaller than X and on the LHS thus subtracted, giving -5+10=5 which is just V in the first place, and fiber[sic] is spelt fibre.

      As it’s a company name, rather than a word, they can spell “fiber” however they like. In this case, VXF originates in Sweden, where they have opted for the American English spelling of fibre. But in any case, post-merger, VXFIBER as a UK entity in control of the network no longer exists.
