First Utility offers broadband deals to wider public

Tuesday, July 25th 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

First Utility has made its broadband packages available to people who aren’t already an energy customer.

The company launched a range of broadband deals earlier in the year for existing customers, but has now opened them up to the wider public.

Basic up to 17Mbps broadband is £18.99 a month with First Utility, including line rental.

Until 28 July, the up to 38Mbps package will cost £27.99 a month (usually £31.99) and up to 76Mbps is £34.99.

All First Utility’s broadband packages have an 18-month minimum term and are free from any kind of upfront charges.

They come with pay as you go calls, although there is the option to add evening and weekend, anytime or international call packages.

For a limited time, all three plans also come with a six-month subscription to DisneyLife, Disney’s own streaming service that gives you access to hundreds of movies, TV box sets, music and books.

First Utility says it will not increase the monthly charge to its customers at the end of their minimum contract term.

Ed Kamm, the company’s chief commercial officer, said: “Thousands of our existing energy customers have already signed up since we launched to them earlier this year and we're now ready to open it up to all.

“It was always our plan to make it available to everyone ahead of the peak broadband switching season once we’d proven the proposition with existing customers.

“The radical change in our viewing habits further highlights why cheaper, faster broadband for all is so vital. It’s a utility just like gas or electricity – an essential for a smooth-running home.

“We think the simple pricing - with no 'out of contract’ price rise at the end of the initial term - appeals to people who want a reliable, simple and fair broadband service.”

Back in March, First Utility said it was targeting broadband customers who are paying over the odds because they are out of contract with their provider.

Mr Kamm added: “There are huge parallels between the energy market and broadband with millions of households overpaying for both services. We’ve been successful in unsettling the Big Six in energy and our next target is the Big Four in broadband by bringing great customer service and simple, low prices.
