ADSL24 and Fido.Net introduce new fibre-broadband offers
Monday 11 June 2012 16:43:16 by John Hunt

ADSL24 have announced new pricing for their fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband products which see an increase in their unlimited usage period. The company have decided to increase the unlimited window from midnight back to 8pm, making it ideal for usage in the evenings. Off-peak usage allowances also counted all weekend. In addition to the usage window changing, the setup fee has been reduced to £36 for new activations, and just £26 for migrations away from existing FTTC providers. This reduced setup fee is valid until the end of July when it will return to £99 inc. VAT.

Full product details including up-to 80Meg FTTC for ADSL24 are available here.

In other fibre-broadband offer news, Fido.Net have announced a promotion for startups in celebration of receiving a nomination for Best Business Fixed Broadband at the 2012 ISPA awards. Fido will give businesses 6 months free broadband, usually £35 or £55 per month depending on the fibre-broadband option chosen, and half price installation (£50+VAT). Full details from the Fido.Net newsletter.

I'm being dumb here. The 30MB Pro package has a Peak Usage limit of 30GB. Is that a month? If it is then it's not competitive at all with VM. Also - what happens if you exceed the Peak Usgae limit?
Posted by zyborg47 over 4 years ago
That is per month, but you do get unlimited at off peak times off peak is 8pm to 8am and all weekend.

if you go over then you can top up.

Remember that ADSl24 is a small ISP, they can't compete pricewise with larger ISPs like Bt, sky, Talk Talk or Virgin.

what you do get is better customer service. you pays the price and takes your choice.

ADSL24 is a niche provider, they value quality of service instead of oversubscribing the network, unlike VM you won't have...packet loss, poor speed and/or traffic management.

Almost all BTW based providers charge if you go over.

Thanks - completely agree about service levels. The likes of VM go for headline speeds instead of QOS. Unfortunately, the headline grabbers get the majority of customers.

Same when it comes to voting, like sheep lead to the slaughter.

ADSL24's prices start at £12.90 a month. They are not a premium ISP. There are no guarantees their service will be better than VM.

@ElBobbo

That's not including line rental and it's only 5GB peak usage.
Posted by ElBobbo over 4 years ago
Yes, and, so, therefore? VM do cheap packages. No point being a snob. From what I hear on the forums, they've also got a few problems on the Customer Service side too.

I take that back, just checked the Ispreview top50 list, they've lost their way.
