BT Consumer has launched two new ultrafast fibre broadband packages with maximum download speeds of 152Mbps and 314Mbps respectively, and both with a 100Mbps speed guarantee.

The new packages support both the latest hybrid fibre G.fast and an end to end FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premises) technologies, reported ISP Review.

Customers who sign up for either package will get compensation if their download speed ever falls below 100Mbps. No other UK Internet Service Provider currently guarantees these high speeds – backed by compensation, claims BT.

The 100Mbps guarantee means customers can enjoy ten times the UK average standard broadband speeds at peak times. Customers on Ultrafast 2 will be able to download an HD movie in just under three minutes versus nearly an hour with standard broadband.

Prices will start from just £54.99 a month for Ultrafast Fibre 1 and the Ultrafast Fibre 2 option will cost £59.99 a month, both including our new Smart Hub – the UK’s most powerful wi-fi router versus other broadband providers and access to five million Wi-fi hotspots.

More than a quarter of a million homes in the UK are already able to take advantage of BT Ultrafast Fibre broadband today, with a 100Mbps guarantee, as the network rolls out. 

Marc Allera, CEO, BT Consumer
We are the first and only company to guarantee speeds of 100Mbps for our customers, even at peak times when people really need their broadband to deliver. Ultrafast technology is going to be a vital part of a transformation in the speed that our customers receive.
