Speeds

We are currently testing speeds up to

29 Mbps download
14 Mbps upload

Tariff (monthly rates)

Standing charge - £5 per subscriber
Rate per 10 GB - £1.50

E.G.

10GB - £6.50
20GB - £8
30GB - £9.5
40GB - £11

There is no upper limit to the monthly quota just add £1.50 per additional 10 GB.

All subscribers pay a £132 premium which is equivalent to the additional amount paid by basic service subscribers who joined in December 2014 when the tariff was higher.

This is collected as a monthly surcharge of £11 for anyone using 20 GB or more per month.

The equivalent rates are:-

20GB - £19
30GB - £20.5
40GB - £22

After 12 months when the £132 premium has been paid the rates drop to £8, £9.5, £11 etc.

We still offer our original rate of £13.50 per month for 10 GB and this will accumulate the £132 premium in 19 months when the rate will drop to £6.50.

In December 2017 the new tariff will come into effect for those that have paid the new subscribers premium.

The new rates are £5 standing charge + £1.50 per 20 GB

e.g. 20 GB - £6.50, 40 GB - £8, 60 GB - £9.50, 80 GB - £11 ... 200GB - £20 etc.
