New UK Ultrafast Broadband ISP Called Beebu Launches

The UK has no shortage of retail broadband providers, but today another one has been officially launched in the shape of Fareham-based Beebu (BeeBu Telecom Limited), which like a lot of newer entrants appears to be harnessing several of the market’s alternative full fibre (FTTP) network operators.

The provider’s current partners are said to include CityFibre, MS3, Freedom Fibre, FullFibre and F&W Networks, although they’re eyeing more partnerships for the near future. “BeeBu full-fibre is accessible to 14.8 million homes in the UK and is on track to be available in 16 million homes by August 2024“, states the announcement, which quietly reflects the fact that they’re also available via Openreach’s national network.

Behind the scenes, BeeBu is also said to be supported by Vantage Cloud, which is facilitating their ISP automation platform to help provide customer experience and support. In addition, the provider is preparing several forthcoming announcements about initiatives like ‘Switch & Save’ and a “significant” UK sponsorship.

David Kilby, CEO of BeeBu, said:

“Over the past 18 months, we have witnessed multiple broadband companies entering the market, some catering to niche communities, specific regions, or localities. However, a recurring trend is that customer service and reliability are somewhat lacking, failing to meet consumer expectations.

BeeBu approaches this differently. Since the inception of this project, we have aimed to stand out, providing ultrafast full-fibre broadband access to more UK homes than any other provider, all the while ensuring it is highly dependable and cost-effective.”

The challenge for Beebu is that various other ISPs in the market often make similar claims and standing out in such a busy crowd remains an incredibly difficult task.

    For a company that was only launched today, they seem to have an awful lot of five star ratings on trust pilot.

    How does that work?

    For someone to take a chance on these brand new ISPs they need to be cheaper than the competition. I just put my postcode in their checker and its £35 for 1GB/s. I am currently paying £29 for 1.2GB with Yayzi.

      Mine is an even worse deal!!

      £29 for 80MB down 20 MB up

      Min guarantee only 40Mb down and 5Mb up

      Curruently have Gig1 from Virgin

    The fact the UK has so many alt-net ISP’s these daysis why i choose not to use any of them its too easy for companies to just make an isp overnight, and many of them have no real long-term future. A lot of them will either shut down or be merged into a bigger operation, as they only appeal to an extremely small number of customers. At this point, if people want a stable isp thats likely to be around in 5 years time, they should stick to known providers like BT, Sky, Virgin Media, EE, to name a few.

    1. Avatar photo TJ says:

      If it wasn’t for the Altnets providing price competition then the cartel of ISPs you listed would continue to rip consumers off with higher package prices and annual prices. Their prices are only what they are today thanks to the competition.

      The availability of Full Fibre across the UK is largely attributed to Altnets upsetting the duopoly forcing both Openreach and Virgin to invest in their networks.

      Yes some retail ISPs will come and go but even TalkTalk’s future is looking dubious so your comment is a bit silly as nobody knows what the market will look like in 5 years time.

      Last year I thought more or less the same thing, one of the things that was stopping me changing to whom I am with now was because I was worried they would go belly up or sell out to a provider I did not want to be with. I went with a small stand-alone provider years ago and got my fingers burnt a little, so I was a bit worried about doing it again. In the end, I thought stuff it, let go for it and see what happens, if it goes belly up I will move to another provider, if another provider takes it over I am not a fan of again I can change provider. I will not be ideal, but sometimes, as they say, you have to take the risk.

      So far nearly 12 months in and all is well, glad I made the choice, things can still change, but we will see.

      There are only 2 internet providers in the UK: Openreach and Virgin Media.

      @Mike, How do you work that out?

      Openreach don’t provide Internet at all, Mike.

    From their T&Cs:
    “We will take all the necessary measures to ensure your Services are maintained and unaffected, however in the event of a Force Majure event leading to a power failure and disruption to the network, if you rely on your Broadband and/or Router for contacting Emergency Organisation’s will be unavailable if using the internet to make phones calls, such as VoIP.”
    I think I know what they’re trying to say, but this level of English on an official/legal document doesn’t bode well….

    1. Avatar photo Andrew says:

      Doesn’t everyone have a statement similar to this in their T&C’s? Ultimately they’re saying they can’t be held accountable for extreme weather events and such like outside their own control.

    2. Avatar photo Steve says:

      That’s pretty normal.

    3. Avatar photo wireless pacman says:

      The general point is normal, but the quality of English is abysmal.

      @wireless Pac-Man
      Yes, thank you. That was the point I was trying to make. Clearly my own English needs some work! 🙂

  6. Avatar photo Peter says:

    Nothing stands out to me, 24 month contract with annual price rises… No thank you!
    Seem these type companies come and go all the time… You’d think they would try to offer something different or more appealing like faster than gigabit etc

  7. Avatar photo Buggerlugz says:

    Is this like an MVNO mobile reseller, who is just selling someone else’s product and taking a cut?

  8. Avatar photo David says:

    Also using Openreach, so check your upload as well!

  9. Avatar photo Chris says:

    Nice idea but too pricey – £39 for 550mb on BT was too much so I re-signed a new 24 mth contract with Vodafone at £30 for 500Mb…Eight reviews on Trustpilot so far, all 5*
