Ultrafast package, at 300Mbps, launched by Aylesbury Vale Broadband

Tuesday, December 8th 2015

The Aylesbury Vale Broadband project has launched a new package with 300Mbps speeds, to equal the 'ultrafast' definition of UK's regulator Ofcom. The 'ultrafast' service went live officially last month, supplying North Marston that benefited around 800 people there. It is being expanded to Granborough to benefit some 600 people.

The Connected Nations 2015 report by Ofcom, the telcoms regulator, has redefined 'ultrafast' speeds as 300Mbps+. This made it difficult for Aylesbury Vale Broadband (AVB) to call their services as 'ultrafast', but AVB has now solved the problem by offering this package. Their high-capacity Fibre-to-the-Hone (FTTH) broadband network can adapt to such demands.

The only drawback is the price tag of £135 per month for this package. In comparison, the faster package of B4RN at 1000Mbps comes at £30 per month. For the same speed ISP Gigaclear charges £74 while ISP Hyperoptic charges £47. This makes AVB the more expensive provider on FTTH service. But local customers can opt for the cheaper packages like the £30 per month for unlimited service at 30Mbps, or £38 per month for the 100Mbps service, but with a one-off charge of £150 as connection charges and with various options for installation.
