Zen Internet to increase usage allowances on ADSL2+ products

Zen Internet ADSL and ADSL2+ based products are set to get a significant boost in usage allowances from 1st December 2013. The product improvements have featured in a monthly newsletter sent out to Zen customers.

Product Old Allowance New Allowance Monthly Price (inc VAT)
Lite 20 GB 50 GB £18.37
Active 100 GB 200 GB £25.52
Pro 200 GB 500 GB £35.74
Office 400 GB 1000 GB £54.00
Office Max 2000 GB Unlimited £94.80

For existing Zen customers the changes will apply once their usage allowance is reset on 1st December. For those in an area where a FTTC can be ordered an unlimited usage allowance service with up to 38 Mbps download and 9.5 Mbps upload service can be ordered for £27 per month. This pricing of a faster product with a better usage allowance is possible because of the unique way that Zen Internet is leveraging its own backhaul network for the fibre based services.


Plusnet still the cheaper on ADSL2+ with no usage allowance (unlimited) at £9.99 a month. Can't believe Zen won't do it unlimited yet for ADSL2+.

They are going to do it from 1 DEC 13 but it i'll cost a wopping £94.80 if i have read the above correctly, and you can also get the 80/20 FTTC variant standalone for £29.50 or £25.00 with line rental

ADSLMax, the difference is between Zen and Plusnet is that Zen aren't owned by BT.

Still this is great news for where I work, the majority of our connections are via Zen, although to be fair it's rare for us to go over the limits as our connections are so slow due to the line lengths. :-/

Great news as my kids are hammering my 100gb with Thomas the tank engine videos on Youtube. 200gb is a handy top up :)

Zen are now using their own network for LLU ADSL2+ in exchanges where they have presence, so their backhaul cost base should be the same for ADSL2+ as FTTC.
