UK ISP BT is sending out invites for a new trial, which will see them “teaming up” with EE to offer a special discount when a customer takes both a BT Broadband and EE Mobile service. Normally both providers, despite being part of the same group, would treat their customers as being separate but that may soon change.

UK ISP EE has this week become the latest internet provider to adopt SOGEA technology (standalone copper broadband), which means that their “fibre broadband” (FTTC and G.fast) packages no longer come with a phone (voice) calls service attached. Just don’t expect to save much money.

A recent update to Sky Broadband’s latest SR203/204 Sky Hub wireless router appears to have caused a bug for the ISP’s VoIP using customers, which results in a 1 hour time difference on DECT handsets that can sometimes prevent calls from reaching the customer. But a fix is coming, even if we don’t know when.

UK ISP BT Business has today extended the availability of their converged HALO packages to include small business customers, which combines their “fibre broadband“, 4G unlimited mobile and digital phone line (app based) service into a single bundle from £42.95 +vat per month.

Plus 5G via EE is now live in 100 cities and towns.

Over the past few months’ we’ve seen the UK Government step-up market engagement exercises as part of work to develop a framework for their £5bn investment, which aims to ensure that “every home” can access “gigabit-capable” broadband by the end of 2025. As a result we now have a better idea of what this will look like.

New customers of UK broadband ISP Talk Talk Business may be pleased to learn that they too can now access the provider’s latest “best-ever” Wi-Fi Hub (Sagemcom F@st 5364) router, which was first launched for their residential subscribers (here) all the way back in May 2018. At least it looks identical to us.

Mobile operator and UK ISP EE has today reintroduced converged pricing on their fixed line ADSL, FTTC and G.fast based home broadband plans, which in simple terms means that the operator’s existing Pay Monthly mobile customers will pay less than somebody who just orders their fixed line service by itself.

UK ISP Pulse8 Broadband has joined other providers in launching a variety of new “ultrafast broadband” packages based off Openreach’s G.fast technology, as well as a full suite of plans using their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, which includes the top 1000Mbps tier. But unlike others these are all 1 month contract terms.

After a long wait Sky Broadband has finally become the latest UK ISP to introduce an ultrafast and superfast broadband package based off Openreach’s Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, but sadly this will initially take the form of a small scale pilot and is currently only available to a number of FTTP eligible homes.
