Broadband Small Print

General
Openreach FTTP

FTTP 'broadband only' connections are available with a choice of 1, 12 or 24 month contract lengths. If you cancel the service (including moving house) then you will be liable for an early termination charge of £10.00 for each month remaining of the contracted period.


Connection via the Openreach network with minimum lead time of 14 days, actual lead time varies subject to survey.

FTTP connections for new circuits on 1 month contracts will be subject to a £25.00 activation charge, 12 & 24 month contract packages will be installed free of charge. A free migration will be offered where an existing Openreach FTTP installation is detected.

To achieve maximum possible throughput speeds (900-950Mbit/s after TCP/IP overheads) on gigabit packages you will require a high specification router and suitable client hardware (most phones, tablets and older computers will only manage around 500-700Mbps throughput). See ISP Review 'Why Buying Gigabit Broadband Doesn’t Always Deliver 1Gbps') for some more information on Gigabit performance issues.
A reduced minimum guaranteed speed of 250Mbit/s applies on Gigabit services when not using an IDNet supplied router.

FTTP services are contended so throughput speed may be below synchronisation speed at peak times, if you require an un-contended service please speak to us about our EtherPro Leased Lines.

FibreHeroes FTTP

FTTH services are contended so throughput speed may be below synchronisation speed at peak times, if you require an un-contended service please speak to us about our EtherPro Leased Lines.

If your throughput speed is lower than the specified minimum speed for 3 consecutive days (tested using our iPerf3 endpoint) and we are unable to help you attain a higher speed through standard fault diagnostics then you can choose to move to a cheaper package or leave your contract without penalty.

CityFibre Business FTTP

FTTP connections are available to properties designated as commercial and come with a 1 month contract length and Critical Care.

Connection via the CityFibre network have a typical lead time of 14 days for standard business installations.

To achieve maximum possible throughput speeds (900-950Mbit/s after TCP/IP overheads) on gigabit packages you will require a high specification router and suitable client hardware (most phones, tablets and older computers will only manage around 500-700Mbps throughput).

SoGEA

Broadband speeds are affected by your proximity to your local telephone street cabinet & quality of your line. Estimated synchronisation speeds for your line are based on a clean line (i.e. in good condition), the DSL router being connected directly to the Openreach master socket and computer being connected via ethernet cable (any speed related issue will require this setup in order to do diagnostics).

SoGEA connections on 1 month contracts are subject to an installation charge of £25.00, installation is free for 12&24 month contracts.

SoGEA connections are subject to a choice of 1, 12 & 24 month contracts. If you cancel the service (including moving house) then you will be liable for an early termination charge of £10.00 for each month remaining of the contracted period.

SoGEA services are contended so throughput speed may be below synchronisation speed at peak times, if you require an un-contended service please speak to us about out EtherPro Leased Lines.

Mobile Broadband

Mobile broadband speeds are completely dependent on the quality of the H3G 4G/5G signal at the location where you are using the device.

Indicated service quality is based on results from the OFCom mobile availability API at the address you selected when doing an availability check.

A one off £30.00 early termination charge applies if you cancel the service before your contracted end date.

A 650GB per month fair usage policy applies, your service will be restricted if you exceed this amount.
