Internet provider Andrews & Arnold (AAISP) have today become the latest to launch a 160Mbps download and 50Mbps upload capable (maximum potential speed of the tier) G.fast based “ultrafast broadband” package as part of a new trial, which may be followed later by a 330Mbps capable plan.

At present the new hybrid fibre G.fast technology is only available to a little over 1 million UK premises, although Openreach are aiming to cover 10 million by the end of 2020. AAISP will charge a premium of +£10 extra per month for the new service above their existing Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) product, which means that their cheapest option with line rental will start at £55 inc. VAT per month with 200GB of usage or £70 with 1000GB.

A&A will also cover the cost of the install/migration on an existing phone line (i.e. FREE install) and a discounted ZyXEL VMG3925 router is available for £25. The installation will be carried out by an Openreach engineer who will provide the modem (Huawei MT992).

Of those prices, I take it that those numbers include ‘line rental’? I have got a bit confused with AA FTTC quoted prices. The figures for VDSL2 (non-G.FAST) FTTC, are those quoted with a cap at 40 Mbps downstream? (And don't know about upstream at all.) I am just wondering what the three prices are, VDSL2 40Mbps, and G.Fast.
