ISP Vodafone Reveal UK Prices for 1Gbps FTTH Home Broadband
« on: September 12, 2018, 10:54:26 AM »

Vodafone has today revealed how much UK consumers will need to pay in order to access their new 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) based “Gigafast Broadband” network, which is initially being rolled out to cover 1 million homes in up to 12 of Cityfibre’s existing cities by the end of 2021.

The £500m Phase One roll-out has already confirmed that Milton Keynes – at a cost of around £40m – will be the first to benefit and some trial homes went live in July 2018. Since then several additional cities have also been confirmed including: Aberdeen, Peterborough, Edinburgh, Coventry, Huddersfield and Stirling (together accounting for about 500,000 premises and £315m of the planned investment).

If all goes well then Vodafone have indicated that there’s the “potential to extend” this FTTH deployment to reach up to 5 million homes by 2025 (approximately 50 towns and cities, representing 20% of the current UK broadband market), although this would require significantly more investment to be raised.

The construction phase has already started in several of the aforementioned cities and Vodafone are currently aiming to connect their first non-trial customers before the end of 2018. As part of that plan they’ve today finally revealed the first pricing (inc. VAT) for their new ultrafast broadband packages, which will initially only be available to pre-order from Friday 14th September 2018 in Milton Keynes.

The first official installations will then commence on 8th October 2018 and as usual a discount of £5 per month is available to customers that already have a Vodafone mobile contract.
