Internet providers that have adopted Openreach’s new Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based 330Mbps (50Mbps upload) product at wholesale will be pleased to learn that the operator has extended their current monthly rental discount until 31st March 2019, although not all ISPs have passed the savings on to end-users.
The 330/50 FTTP tier was introduced last year to match the top headline rate of the operator’s fastest G.fast product and it was soon followed by a significant discount, which was first launched on 1st October 2017 (here). The offer was only due to be available for a period of 12 months but it’s now been extended into the new year (NOTE: FVA = Fibre Voice Access | PM = Per Month).
|Connection Fee||FTTP Transition Rental Price (pm)||FTTP Data Rental Price (pm)||FTTP Data + FVA Rental Price (pm)|
As usual these are the costs that Openreach charges ISPs and they will of course still need to add their own costs for service delivery, such as VAT (20%), profit margins, data capacity and other bits in order to create the product that people go out and buy.
