I remember them putting that up after a vat change.
You can't argue about them wanting to be transparent with their customers!

Yes, it's a bit confusing until you read the actual dagger text at the bottom.

It's £30.

The off-peak GBs is also dodgy given the 2am-6am 1TB per unit. Taking the peak 2GB and "50GB" off-peak that leaves 200GB between 2am and 6am. 1GB peak would give 600GB 2-6. 40GB in "off-peak" instead of 50GB would add another 200GB in 2-6.

No way could orly cover that lot, but I do think the 50GB is rather pessimistic.

Yes, that's true for AAISP. The OP was talking about Goscomb's prices being VAT-exclusive, not AAISP's.

Goscomb's site is quite clear:

"All prices displayed exclude VAT."

The issue is AAISP prices. Point 1 of the OP and subsequent discussions of the AAISP page linked to there. The spreadsheet prices are incorrect.

Yes it is being maintained. I try to keep an eye on it and check the ISPs from time to time but it's hard to catch every change. I appreciate when people make threads like this or send me a private message when I've missed stuff.

Are your prices right for Plusnet Market 2 exchanges? Plusnet say that they classify Market 2 and 3 exchanges as "Low cost areas for residential accounts"

Hi again orly, just to say thanks for maintaining the sheet.

In the end we didn't find a suitable FTTC package so went for an additional BE wholesale service, but the sheet was crucial in that decision so was much appreciated.

Once GEA is more widespread and / or contract term is reduced we'll be using the sheet again!

Just a small point, but ADSL24's setup fee is £99 not £49, I know because I'm currently a customer of theirs but the economics of £99 setup fee plus £40-50 for a new wireless router mean I'm almost certainly going to have to migrate away despite them being the best ISP I've ever been with. But thanks to the compilers of the list, it's going to help me out a great deal deciding who to migrate to when my cabinet goes live soon. Oh, and if anyone can make personal recommendations about fibre ISP's that have limits of 100Gb or more, then please feel free to PM me.

Steve - you use 100GB or more; what time of day do you mostly use this? If it's mostly made of bulk downloads that can be scheduled overnight then you're spoiled for choice.

If it mostly comprises stuff that needs to happen during the day or evening then you may find your search limited to plusnet or BT, unless you're willing to part with a larger amount of cash.

Fixed...seems they are another provider who have hiked their install price.

No choice after Openreach raised the installation charge to £80+vat late last year, so that's why frown
