Zen Internet slashes broadband bundle prices
Award-winning ISP reduces contract prices across the board
Zen Internet has today announced a series of reductions across its SMB broadband packages, giving business customers cheaper access to its services.
The company, which has won our sister publication PC Pro's annual "Best Broadband" award for the past 16 years, announced that it has dropped prices across its "Fast", "Superfast" and "Ultrafast G.fast" plans by between 8% and 22%, depending on the package.
"We have built a reputation for exceptional customer service and reliability which has been endorsed by the many awards we have won from independent bodies such as ... PC Pro," said Zen CEO Paul Stobart. "With these latest price reductions we can now offer our award-winning service at more competitive price points."
"As part of our strategic plan to become a major infrastructure player we have secured the financing for a network refresh plan in order to take advantage of the growth that we see ahead. These price reductions coupled with our growth ambitions gives us the advantage of being able to compete on a level playing field with our biggest competitors."
One-month contracts on its Fast plans and 24-month contracts on its Ultrafast G.fast plans have dropped 8%, to 27.49 exc VAT per month and 53 exc VAT per month respectively, with no activation fees. The Fast plan offers average download speed of 10Mb/sec, while the Ultrafast option comes in two tiers, with average download speeds of either 150Mb/sec or 300Mbits/sec. The Ultrafast plan can be delivered using either G.fast or fibre to the premises (FTTP) infrastructure, but the FTTP option does not benefit from the price reduction.
The biggest savings, however, are to be found in Zen's mid-tier 66Mb/sec 'Superfast' plan. The price of a 12-month contract has now dropped 15% to 35 exc VAT with a 17 exc VAT activation fee, while 22% has been shaved of the price of a 24-month contract, which now costs 32 exc VAT per month with no activation fee.
New customers will still receive a free AVM Fritz!Box 7530 router as part of their contract (except for the one-month Fast plan contracts). Existing customers can also take advantage of the deals once their current contract expires.
