Post Office fibre broadband 38Mbps and 76Mbps launched

Post Office fibre broadband 38Mbps and 76Mbps launched

Tuesday, 29 August, 2017

The Post Office has started selling fibre broadband deals for the first time.

Previously the Post Office only had standard (up to 17Mbps) speed broadband available to buy.

But bosses are keen to broaden their offering after adding thousands of customers across broadband and home phone packages.

In 2016 the Post Office grew its broadband customer base by 8.3%, bringing in annual revenues of £130m.

What you get

The Post Office have two versions of fibre broadband available.

Both deals are unlimited usage so there’s no caps or limits to worry about.

Both come with set-up fees of £30 up front but you do get your WiFi-enabled router for free, and there are no postage costs.

Both come with weekend landline calls for free.

Anti-virus and malware defender Post Office SafeGuard comes free with both versions of fibre broadband.

Included in the software is a nanny filter so parents can block specific websites, a ‘homework guard’, where you can nix access to social media in the post-school hours, and an internet security application which identifies potential phishing and malware-infected websites.

Post Office Unlimited Fibre offers speeds up to 38Mbps on an 18 month contract for £28 a month.

The faster Post Office Unlimited Fibre Plus deal gives you speeds up to 76Mbps, again on an 18 month contract, this time for £32 a month.
