Uno launches up to 330Mbps G.fast broadband pilot

How does getting triple digit download speeds over a BT phone line sound? Uno is seeking trialists to take part in a pilot scheme for two G.fast-based ultrafast broadband services, which promise top download speeds of 160Mbps and 330Mbps. These will set you back GBP34.95/month and GBP39.99/month (plus VAT) respectively, plus GBP97 for installation and set-up, and an Openreach G.fast modem.

Line rental isn’t included in the price, though this can be added for an extra GBP9.99/month. As it’s a trial scheme, the small print says that Uno may cancel within 30 days’ notice, despite there being a 12 month minimum contract. The pilot scheme is also only available in selected areas, which Uno’s listed here on its Facebook page[1].

Price-wise, that’s a little better per month than what BT’s offering[2], though as ISP Review[3] notes, you won’t get any nice extras thrown in like BT WiFi, guaranteed speeds of 100Mbps at all times, 1000GB’s worth of online storage.

That said, the Sheffield-based ISP also offers 24 hour support Monday to Friday, secures customer accounts with one time passwords or YubiKey[4] and is also a corporate sponsor of privacy and digital rights advocates the Open Rights Group[5], all good signs that Uno takes the handling of its customers’ data seriously.
