City focused full fibre broadband ISP Hyperoptic, which already covers well over 500,000 UK premises, has launched a new promotion that slashes the cost of their top Gigabit tier (average speed of 900Mbps) to just £38 per month (plus a £19 one-off activation fee) for the first 12 months of service (£60 thereafter).
The pricing level is lower than last year’s Black Friday sale for the same package, which charged £40 a month but also offered free activation. As usual new customers can pick from either a broadband and phone bundle or a broadband-only service on a 12 month contract. You can also get a “no contract” option (broadband-only), but this tends to cost a few pounds extra.
The packages all include unlimited usage, 24/7 support, a wireless router (e.g. ZTE H298A but we believe a better one is coming) and a dynamic IP address (IPv6 support has been rolled out) or £5 extra per month for a Static IP. Hyperoptic’s network is currently on course to cover 2 million homes by the end of 2021 and then possibly 5 million by 2024 (here).
In order to benefit from the new price you’ll also need to place an order online using their promo code – SAVE19. The downside is that their slower tiers have gone up in price, at least for the first contract term (post-contract prices are unchanged).
|Package||Broadband Only (£19 Activation)||Broadband and Phone (Free Activation)|
|30Mbps||£20 a month (*£22)||£21 a month (*£25)|
|150Mbps||£27 a month (*£35)||£28 a month (*£38)|
|900Mbps||£38 a month (*£60)||£39 a month (*£63)|
