Zzoomm says their 2 Gbps network in Henley on Thames is live

Zzoomm with its 2 Gbps download (200 Mbps upload) service is set to bring a lot happy faces to the people of Henley on Thames as it on its service for customers in Henley on Thames.

Life’s too short for bad broadband. Zzoomm’s customers can now do more, with industry-leading speeds at eye-catching prices. No more fighting over Wi-Fi or waiting for movies to download. Homes in Henley-on-Thames can now access broadband speeds of up to 2Gbps.

Zzoomm's launch of Double services backed by our industry-leading speeds represents the future of UK broadband and Henley-on-Thames is the first town to benefit from this – with many towns across the UK to follow.

Matthew Hare, Zzoomm’s Founder and Chief Executive

We have asked for detail on which streets are actually live, but will be adding the packages to our listings shortly and then the maps once we have found out which bits of Henley on Thames are live.

  • POP! 100 Mbps download, 10 Mbps upload £29/m 12 month contract. Free standard install
  • POW! 400 Mbps download, 40 Mbps upload £49/m 12 month contract. Free standard install
  • WHOOSH! 900 Mbps download, 90 Mbps upload £89/m 12 month contract. Free standard install
  • WOW! 2000 Mbps download, 200 Mbps upload £189/m 12 month contract. Free standard install

An option £10/m upgrade is available to increase upload speeds to symmetric speeds and customers also have a choice of getting two Zzoomm hubs to give better Wi-Fi coverage across the home or a second 100 Mbps connection that for example could be dedicated to the main TV and thus avoid activities that would otherwise saturate your connection from interfering with watching the latest 4K blockbuster on Netflix or Amazon Prime. With two connections installed there is we also presume the option of picking where the two services terminate in the home, e.g. one behind the main TV and one in the home office. Though if your home office is a fancy shed in the back garden they may be additional install charges depending on the distances involved.


That was quick - I mean in terms of elapsed time from forming the business to going live. It looks as though Matthew has learned something rather important from the construction problems that forced both Gigaclear and City Fibre to sell out for rather less than they were worth.

Will be very interested to see coverage.

I wonder if they just plucked the low hanging fruit of the town itself, or actually enabled the vast tracts of long rural lines the Openreach exchange covers from Henley exchange ?

I think the Zzoomm package is excellent. I have previously been on relatively slow broadband in Henley and now with full fibre for £29 a month I have just done a speed test and its recording 134Mbps. I will use VOIP/WhatsApp for voice calls so no need for old traditional phone line. I am no expert but if you compare major providers phone line/broadband package then I havent seen anything that matches the Zzoomm price and they only offer relatively slow broadband options!. Its a matter of choice but for me I would recommend the Zzoomm package to anyone in Henley.

Hi Broadband watchers.
I have looked for the post code dots for Zoom in the Exchange area and I see no results could be waiting for over/lay.

Zoomed to where they are, and its Zzoomm not Zoom (Zoom is a fixed wireless provider)
