Can I get broadband with no contract?
Yes, DST offers its standard broadband (ADSL) and fibre packages on a 28-day rolling agreement.
These rolling short term broadband contracts are not available with Direct Save’s fibre optic broadband packages.
What is fibre to the home?
It’s Direct Save’s fibre to the premises (FTTP) service whereby fibre optic cables run directly to your home.
This allows for consistently faster download and upload speeds compared to fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) services, where although fibre cables carry data to and from your local telephone exchange, copper cables carry it the remaining distance you your home from your roadside telephone cabinet, and as a result, it slows down.
Fibre to the premises services – or fibre to the home (FTTP/FTTH) – are considerably more expensive for providers to deploy and as such aren’t as readily available as fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) solutions.
Direct Save’s FTTP service is currently available to a couple of dozen specific locations, with others expected to go live soon. You can check availability on the Direct Save Telecom website.
