New Hyperoptic offers give reduced price for 12 months
The latest offers from Hyperoptic are now live and rather than a reduced price for 6 or 9 months, the reduced price deals are running for the full twelve months of the minimum term.
- 20 Mbps download, 1 Mbps upload broadband and phone service is £18/m for 12 months, then £25/m
- Symmetric 100 Mbps broadband and phone is £28/m for 12 months, then £38/m
- Symmetric Gigabit broadband and phone is £48/m for 12 months, then £63/m
Broadband only options, i.e. no phone line are available, but these carry a £40 set-up fee, though when you work out the cost of the basic entry level service without a phone line costs £496 over two years and the broadband + phone options is £516.
The dynamic IP address is CGNAT based, so people with multiple games consoles and other applications beyond the usual web based activities may need to add the £5/m static IP address option to the pricing.
The £18/m for 12 months entry level fibre offer matches a recent Virgin Media offer and is cheaper than Sky with the VDSL2 25GB allowance service offer at £20/m which is heavily promoted as the 'The UK's lowest priced fibre including line rental'. The Virgin Media offer did not include line rental as it was a broadband-only service, but it will be interesting to see if Sky now tweaks its Lego Batman promotional material, perhaps adding 'widely available' to the copy.
