I'm planning to move into an OFNL-enabled home later in the year, and am looking for recommendations of which ISPs are good, and which to avoid, from those who have contracted with OFNL. I'm also keen to get a static IP address, so if you know of any ONFL ISPs who can provide this, along with costs, I'd love to hear about it.
Having reviewed all of the suppliers and their package options (as well as the quality of their websites!), my preferred options so far are:
MTH Networks - 300/300 £52/mo + £30 setup
Pure Broadband - 360/180 £54/mo + £20 setup
Air Broadband - 300/300 £52.50/mo + £50 setup
Kinetic Telecom - 360/180 £66/mo + £45 setup
I've contacted all of the above to enquire about Fixed IP availability so will see what they say; so far Kinetic have said they do offer it, but only on their business service which costs £1/mo more... but also then incurs an additional £100 on top of the £45 consumer setup charge.
Has anyone heard any more about Sky's/ONFL's press-release last year that Sky would offer broadband services via OFNL in "Summer 2020"?
And what's with the long list of "Business ISPs" listed on the ONFL website? The majority don't seem to mention OFNL on their websites or include OFNL postcodes in their postcode lookups (they just return the standard BTW response about the site/address being blocked). Do any of these actually offer reasonable SOHO/Small Business packages to those connected to the OFNL network, or is this really just to allow their larger corporate clients who find themselves in an OFNL location to obtain leased lines and the like?
Whilst I'm looking forward to "full fibre" and 300Mbps+ speeds, including seemingly far better upload speeds than reasonably available from Openreach, I'm somewhat nervous of having to leave Zen who have provided excellent service for the last ~6 years. I notice one of the few posts about ONFL on here suggested to the last OP that they contact Zen and ask if they would offer services with ONFL, but I assume that went nowhere ;.(
