Giganet will go live with a “try before you buy” package on its own new full fibre network.

Following our recent announcement in May where we announced that we are building to over 300,000 premises across poorly served parts of Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and West Sussex, we have today unveiled that we will offer a significant “try before you buy” deal to all new customers on Giganet’s own network.

The offer gives users the opportunity to try Giganet’s full fibre 500Mb/s symmetric package, with nothing to pay until October 2022. Along with no set up or installation costs for all standard installations, this will drive our mission to deliver full fibre honestly to thousands of customers who are currently stuck on slow copper or FTTC broadband connections. At the end of the promotional period, pricing will revert to our standard pricing.

To further bolster this “try before you buy” initiative, our customers will have the ability to leave without penalty at any time, with just 30 days’ notice even after the free use period.

CEO Jarlath Finnegan explains, “This is a truly different approach to other ISPs and makes a bold statement. We want to prove the case for full fibre and encourage strong take-up. It is going to be great for busy families, home workers and help to drive a greener, more connected world. It should also help those who are locked into a copper-based deal and allow them to experience the benefits of full fibre sooner than they otherwise might. Our deal after this free initial period isn’t set yet, though we are always in line with market prices.”

CSMO Andrew Skipsey, says “Our take-up initiative dovetails with recommendations of the recent Government commissioned GigaTAG publication to improve knowledge, ease of changing providers and a general understanding of the benefits of full fibre internet. We are really excited about this amazing deal, which should drive significant adoption of full fibre in the areas we will be building. We are confident that most will stay with us  once they have experienced our superb ultrafast broadband, backed by our award-winning customer service, as evidenced by our 5-star Trustpilot rating. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks.”
