Zen uses free installation to entice people to fttc services
The push to get more people to sign-up to the various fibre services is increasing, Zen Internet is having a bit of a winter sale with its range of five fibre to the cabinet products now available with free installation until 31st March 2013.
Usually the services carry a £96 installation fee, but by extending the contract term to 24 months Zen is now able to offer installation for free. Zen Internet can also offer voice line rental for substantially less than the bigger players, starting at £11.22 a month.
While the Zen services are based on the Openreach FTTC products, which currently comes with its own VDSL2 modem, Zen does give customers the option of choosing their own PPPoE compatible Ethernet router.
The Zen press release reveals that coverage of the fibre services from Openreach is continuing to grow now reaching around 50% of UK households.
