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.

Yesterday Openreach (BT) announced the milestone of having covered 2 million UK premises with Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband technology (here). As part of that we’ve conducted an exclusive interview with the operator’s MD for Fibre and Network Delivery, Kevin Murphy, to talk about their future fibre plans.

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%.

New customers of EE’s fixed line home broadband and phone (ADSL, FTTC and G.fast) packages may like to know that the ISP has dropped their monthly prices in time for Black Friday, which reduces all of their upfront setup fees to free and knocks a few extra pounds off their previous best monthly rentals.

The UK telecoms regulator, Ofcom, has begun a consultation on the proposed introduction of a new “bulk upgrade process,” which requires an exclusion in Openreach’s (BT) quality of service regulation but would make it more efficient for them to upgrade slower lines to FTTC (VDSL2) based broadband ISP connections.

UK ISP BT has put their annual Black Friday broadband and TV discounts live, which include some extra discounts on a couple of their “fibre” (FTTC) packages, 6 months free Amazon Prime with TV (some of those also come with half price BTSport) and a sprinkling of Reward Cards (pre-paid MasterCard) worth up £125 on some packages.

ISP Sky Broadband (Comcast) appears to be offering their Anytime UK calls add-on at no extra cost (usually +£10 extra per month) for the first 18 months of service, when new customers take out one of their ADSL (11Mbps), FTTC (59Mbps) or G.fast (145Mbps) based broadband and phone bundles (with or without TV).

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has informed their customers that – after conducting “months of trials” – they will not be launching “ultrafast broadband” packages based off Openreach’s hybrid fibre G.fast service, which the provider has described as being a “resource wasteful technology.” Instead they’ll focus on FTTP.

In a new interview the founder and chairman of UK ISP Zen Internet, Richard Tang, has called for the “fibre tax” to be scrapped in order to boost “full fibre” broadband and explains some of the problems of working with smaller altnet ISPs. On top of that he also warns about the difficulties of trying to regulate internet content.

New and existing customers of UK ISP Andrews & Arnold (AAISP), specifically their standard Home::1 based fixed line broadband packages (sold via ADSL, FTTC, G.fast and FTTP), may be pleased to know that their monthly usage allowances will be boosted from 200GB (GigaBytes) to 300GB from December 2019.

Customers of UK ISP BT (EE) can from today adopt the provider’s new converged “Halo” and “No Limits” plans, which aims to seamlessly bring together both their 5G mobile and fixed line home broadband (FTTC, FTTP, G.fast) networks. Existing 5G customers with BT Plus plans will be automatically upgraded to benefit from Halo.

After reducing their residential broadband prices Zen Internet has today announced further price drops – varying from between 8% and 22% – across their range of small business focused packages. This mostly appears to impact their standard ADSL, “superfast” FTTC and “ultrafast” G.fast based bundles (FTTP plans are unchanged).

BT Group’s latest results to the end of September 2019 (Q2 19/20 financial) confirm that Openreach’s “ultrafast broadband” (100Mbps+) ISP network has increased its coverage to total 4.2 million premises (up from 3.7m last quarter), which includes 1.81m on FTTP (up from 1.51m) and 2.42m on hybrid fibre G.fast (up from 2.16m).

UK ISP BT has introduced a significant reduction worth up to £10-£15 off the monthly price of their two fixed line “ultrafast broadband” packages, which are sold via the hybrid fibre G.fast and full fibre FTTP technologies. The catch is that you now have to take out a lengthy 24 month contract term.

UK ISP Sky Broadband (Comcast) has today officially made their new G.fast powered Ultrafast 1 (145Mbps) broadband and VoIP (SOGEA) phone packages available for both new and existing customers to order. Prices start from £39 per month and there’s a £39.95 one-off setup fee (we think it’s a free upgrade for existing customers).

UK ISP Sky Broadband is this week expected to put their new range of G.fast based “ultrafast broadband” packages live for everybody, which follows an initial soft launch in August (here). The bad news is that those waiting for FTTP (Openreach) to be supported may now have to wait until Q1 2020.
