The one-off setup fee is also now free.

The Scottish Government‘s Minister for Connectivity, Paul Wheelhouse, has today issued an update on the progress of their much delayed £600m R100 (Reaching 100%) project, which confirms how many premises will benefit in each area and what technologies will be used. Sadly the rollout will complete in 2023, rather than 2021.

The Suffolk County Council (SCC) appear set to appointed a supplier for their new £10m+ state aid fuelled Phase 3 Superfast Broadband contract, which could see 7,000 additional premises (mostly in rural areas) being reached by faster UK ISP networks; most likely via “gigabit-capable” Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology.

The UK broadband ISP division of John Lewis has kicked off the New Year by returning their discounts to Black Friday levels and added in some e-Gift cards, which are worth between £40 and £75 depending upon the package. Apparently these new deals will run until 28th January 2020.

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has launch a new January sale, which discounts their Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) based superfast home broadband packages to half price for the first 6 months of service, although this excludes line rental (i.e. you’ll still need to buy phone line rental from elsewhere).

The Government’s £1.8bn Building Digital UK scheme has now helped to extend “superfast broadband” (24Mbps+) ISP networks to 5,198,436 extra UK premises since 2012/13 and the latest take-up data to September 2019 shows demand from consumers continues to climb, reaching just over 70% in some counties.

28th December, 2019 (10 Comments)

We’re finishing 2019 by taking a look back over the year to see how average broadband ISP download and upload speeds have changed across the top national fixed line and mobile operators. Overall the picture remains one of gradual improvement but the rollout of 5G and “full fibre” (FTTP) will soon change that dynamic.

Openreach (BT) has delayed the launch of their Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA / SOGFast) product, which enables UK people to buy a standalone FTTC (VDSL2 or G.fast) broadband ISP line without the analogue voice (phone), due to a concern over failure rates. The 40Mbps FTTC tier is also due another price cut.

Ofcom has today published their Connection Nations 2019 UK digital infrastructure report, which reveals that “full fibre” (FTTP) broadband ISP networks now cover 10% of premises (up from 6% last year) and “ultrafast” (300Mbps+) lines reach 53% (up from 49%). Sadly geographic 4G cover from all operators is unchanged at 66%.
