      Openreach Introductory Pricing for 160Mbps and 330Mbps FTTP Broadband

      Openreach Introductory Pricing for 160Mbps and 330Mbps FTTP Broadband - ISPreview UK
      In keeping with today’s earlier G.fast announcement (here), Openreach (BT) has also confirmed the introductory pricing for their two matching Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) based broadband speed tiers: 160Mbps (30Mbps upload) and 330Mbps (50Mbps upload).

      The new tiers, which match the headline performance of those being supplied via Openreach’s new G.fast service, are priced at a more expensive level (although 160Mbps isn’t too bad). This is to be expected because pure fibre optic lines are usually more expensive and slower to deploy.
      Variants
      Connection Price
      FTTP Transition Rental
      (per month)
      FTTP Data Rental
      (per month)
      FTTP Data + [Fibre Voice Access] Rental
      (per month)
      New pricing
      160 / 30
      £92
      £12.75
      £21.14
      £21.39
      330 / 50
      £92
      £29.61
      £38.00
      £38.25
      The new tiers and prices will start from September 2017, although a solid date has yet to be set.

      Openreach Statement

      Changes to the Openreach Price List will be notified in due course once the launch date of these FTTP variants is confirmed. A minimum 28-days’ notice will be provided.

      We also intend to introduce a time limited offer on bandwidth modifications for existing FTTP services upgrading to 160/30 Mbps and above. We expect this offer to be available at the time of launch of these new variants, and for a duration of three months.
      As usual these are the costs that Openreach charges ISPs, which come before providers have added their own costs for service delivery, VAT (20%), profit margins, data capacity and other bits in order to create the product you buy. We’d suggest reading the earlier G.fast article as our analysis would be broadly the same for those above.

      None at the moment, but they have proved to being able to keep quite a few things like this very quiet in the past.

      Not yet. They haven't yet complained to the regulator that this is too expensive, that Openreach is gouging the market, that Openreach's return on investment is too high and that the price should be reduced so that Sky can make the profit rather than Openreach.

      It IS too expensive, especially when it really should be considered as a SERVICE nowadays.

      Ask Nivek how much he pays for his 100Mb FTTP line in France...

      It's not as much as we pay for a poxy 80Mb, which many of us can not achieve even though we are paying for it.
