Broadband ISP Aquiss Introduce CityFibre Based FTTP Packages

Shropshire-based UK ISP Aquiss has this evening announced the launch of their first home broadband packages based off CityFibre’s national Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network (here), which will complement their existing range of Openreach-based services.

The provider, which will shortly be celebrating their 18th year of trading, are initially only introducing two packages – a 150Mbps (average speed) entry-level tier for £38 per month (£19 for the first three months of service) and a 900Mbps option for £42 per month (£21 for the first three months of service).

NOTE: CityFibre aspires to cover up to 8 million UK premises (funded by c.£2.4bn in equity, c.£4.9bn debt and c.£800m of BDUK subsidy) – c.30% of the UK – by the end of 2025 (here). The network currently covers 3.5 million UK premises (3.2m as Ready for Service).

All packages include symmetric service speeds, unlimited usage, a 12-month minimum contract term, a pledge of no mid-contract price rises, free activation, a static IPv4 address and static IPv6 addresses (/56). The catch is that new customers are expected to supply their own broadband router, which is not included.
