Been ages since this was posted so thought worth reposting as such a great deal.

It is localised - York and surrounding area only - though there is a postcode checker as rolling out quickly elsewhere so register your interest if you can't already get!

If you can get it then it's a no brainer. I would kill for this.

1GB/sec broadband

Unlimited usage

£21.70 per month ALL IN!!

ASWELL AS FREE ACTIVATION which is normally £50.

Sorry to be THAT guy but I highly doubt it's actually 1GB (Gigabyte) per second, but most likely 1Gb (Gigabit) per second.

Wonder if Steam could max this out?

Downloading a Gig in about 10 seconds. Mmm.

Envy.


​I have access to a very good 2Gbit Internet connection at work that is not stressed. Just want to point out that you will struggle find a site that can steam any kind of normal download to you more than a few hundred megabits. Downloads off Akamai usually top out at 250Mbits. Even the Netflix speed tester maxes out at 350Mbits. Being able to do anything over 500M needs TCP tuning.

Just saying. But enjoy the 1G ;)

Click check availability and it just tells me about the up to 18mb fibre I can currently get but no option to register interest that the first page suggests. Shame

You just were THAT guy.
:p

In all seriousness, epic deal. I imagine if it gets rolled out a bit more nationwide though, they would up the price :(

​This used to be my argument for not needing silly speed internet. But if you're a family household and 2-3 members of your home are doing intensive streaming from the net at the same time, whether thats gaming or streaming a 4k movie, it's not about how fast any one of your services can serve you, it's about how much bandwidth you have to serve multiple home users.

As on demand services grow there's an increasingly valid case for silly speed Internet.

If they offer you the godawful Huawei HG633 router (just read their forums for feedback) you're gimped - so factor in the cost of a decent router when budgeting.

Not available in my area (Tyne & Wear), I was looking for a new provider, I got an email from Virgin saying my package is going up by £4 per month.

I was getting 100mb broadband and it's going to be £40 pm, I've managed to reduce that to £31 for 6 months then £34 for 6 months by reducing to 50mb.

It's no cheaper to drop the phone with Virgin, I don't need a landline...but they know every other provider requires line rental.

Are there any real alternatives that can compete with 50mb broadband for £390 a year?

It's a 18 month contract with talk talk

According to the site it's fiber to the home and on Sky+talk talks own network (not open reach), for £21.70 thats impressive stuff.

Have you tried SSE I'm on 75Mb fibre with them for £21 a month, includes their anytime call package.

​I got that same price from virgin to stay on my 100mb connection. I just called up to cancel as I was going to sky (£32.40 a month for fibre max - 72mb inc line rental) & they offered it in response.

Do you have to be a SSE energy customer?

For info, infrastructure is provided by City Fibre and run as a joint venture between Sky and Talk Talk. Virgin are also now also laying high speed fibre lines in York too. If you live in a flat, forget this deal, it seems to be houses only.
#37
Why just York? Seems a bit of a random place to get such high speeds, I would have thought they'd start with bigger most populated cities first as it would have made more cash surely.

Presumably it's not intended to make lots of cash (otherwise it wouldn't be this cheap) but to test out the infrastructure necessary to support it. Not sure why York works well for that, but I'm sure they thought about it quite hard rather than just sticking a pin in a map and saying "yeah, that'll do".

They probably figured it was the right size city for the kind of demand they want.
