I have been looking to upgrade my to 350m but the price on residential is extortionate compared to the business rate. As we all working from home now we can qualify for business broadband which is £32 for 350m. Why they don't match this for residential I don't know.
However doing some research the router on the business broadband is handy as a door stop rather than anything else, really poor reviews. I don't want go on it if the router is that bad, any thoughts?
The difference on price is that business broadband doesn't offer any of the extras like email for example, you will still have to use the Hitron hub and use it in Modem only mode but you cannot have the static IP addresses, as modem mode will only work with a dynamic IP address.
I know of a lot of Business Broadband customers and the majority of them do not seem to have a problem.
Business broadband prices exclude VAT and they are also 24 month contracts instead of 18 month contracts.
For example, M350 with Talk Weekends is £41 per month for 18 months, totalling £738, or £984 for 24 months.
Voom Fibre 1, plus a phone line, is £39 per month excl. VAT (£46.80 with VAT) for 24 months, which, with VAT totals £1166.40, an increase of £182.40 compared to M350.
That also only has a 7Mbps upload speed, compared to the 36Mbps you get with M350.
