Zen Internet reduce price of fibre installations

The five fibre products from Zen Internet have had their installation fee reduced from £96 to £48.

There is potential for further reductions and wider hardware options later in 2013, as once Openreach launches its PCP-only installation, there will be scope for even cheaper installs and the Openreach modem and a separate router can be replaced by an all in one vdsl2 modem/router box.

Can the Openreach modem & seperate router be replaced with one item already ?

We'd be interested in their fibre-optic broadband service, but I have the suspicion that it is only a BT-based copper VDSL and not a genuine fibre broadband.

Obviously it is, but then you knew that and it was just another chance to have a dig :)

@JNeuhoff Clearly BDUK funded FTTC is insufficient for some in which case be prepared to dig deep and pay for a leased line. No didn't think so. There are many here, especially those on EO lines in areas with no access to BDUK funding, who are unlikely to see any form of NG broadband for several years.

@GMAN99: surely by now almost the whole of the UK has fibre-based broadband: FTTE :)

( E stands for exchange )

@MCM999

Leased line isnt really necessary, you can pay ~£1500 to get FTTP (330Mbps), soon there will br business packages with installation included for ~£50 p/m on a 36 month contract.

@otester: Only in your dreams. Most parts of the UK will never be served by available FTTP from BT. Even the FTTPoD won't be there for a long time to come, if ever. BT is still doing "trials" on the latter one!
