Re: VFast - New Packages to be announced

Any estimates on where the new service will be launching ? seeing as September has come and gone now.


My guess is that they will be ready for the New Year but perhaps announced before Christmas.

Disappointing if only because I'm impatient. Well I hope they stick to the ambitious 60 meg projections while not costing too much more.

I'm hoping that there is some more news soon, even if it's to say that they have delayed things if there has been a need to do so.

I wonder what happened to the announcement of the new packages that were due to be released over Christmas?

Delay with the routers apparently (not sure if they're referring to end users routers but wouldn't see a reason why end users would need to change routers anyway?!?). If you 'like' them on Facebook you will see the posts in there. Some trial speedtest results showing speeds in excess of 50mbit.

Don't see a reason why they can't announce the packages for pre-order however, they must have been decided a while ago considering the announcement was made back in August.

Looks like new packages are being rolled out now (from VFast on Twitter), if you're in St Nicholas anyway.

http://vfast.co.uk/stnicholas/

Packages look pretty good to me - some nice tasty speed increases. I'm guessing if you're on the VMax product already you'll see a reduction in your monthly bill?

Packages are as follows - Not including installation charges (FREE installation if on 24 month contract).

Airfibre Lite - Up to 50Mbps download / 1Mbps upload, 50:1 contention ratio - 5Gb Usage - £14.50*

Airfibre Home - Up to 50Mbps download / 1Mbps upload, 50:1 contention ratio - 10Gb Usage - £17.50*

Airfibre Max - Up to 50Mbps download / 2Mbps upload, 30:1 contention ratio - 100Gb Usage - £24.99*

Airfibre Ultimate - Up to 50Mbps download / 10Mbps upload, 20:1 contention ratio - Unlimited Usage - £29.99*

*Per month - includes £10 VLink rental charge (like a phone rental charge, but lower!).

Pretty sure the Airfibre Max package will suit 90% of users for £24.99 - Same as the current VHome package.

(Darren / Tim - please correct me if the details are incorrect smile )

Cheers
James

Well I'm pleasantly surprised at the unlimited pricing. Fully expected it to be more expensive than the existing package.

It will be interesting to see if the AUP has changed in any way. Currently this is 200GB I believe on max.
If not it would have been nice to have a higher usage option available at greater cost.

I see they have also made price comparisons to ADSL more comparable by breaking out a line rental amount.

Same. I was expecting the costs to be higher, as in £35+ for the "Ultimate" service.

I updated the post above to be clearer about the pricing.

Hopefully the packages will be available in Thanet and elsewhere soon.
