Openserve price changes won't mean cheaper fibre – ISP

Openserve’s recent agreement with the Competition Commission to adjust the price of wholesale broadband access will result in little to no savings on a home user’s monthly fibre bill.

Customers can, however, expect to see an improved network experience during peak times.

Don't worry when the market reacts to higher prices and better competitor offerings - they will be asking for a bailout, so in the end everyone will be paying an increased price.

In response to questions from MyBroadband on the matter, Openserve said it cannot detail its pricing structure as customer contracts are confidential.
...
Openserve stated that its pricing is also competitive when compared to the other fibre network operators in the market
Does Openserve think people are stupid?
If the contracts are confidential, how does Openserve manage to compare?
How do ISP's manage to compare?

So they will remain the most expensive:mad:
Well they aren't actually. 200/100 is about the same price as Vumatel 200/200 and slightly more than Vumatel 200/20.


Anyways very sad for them to have increased line prices. ideally they would have left them the same and then Openserve would have finally been one of the cheapest fibre operators. This IP Connect only means ISPs that have shaping and throttling will be able to do away with those and offer truely unlimited data. I'm looking at you RSAWeb. Your disgusting shaping policy of 2Mbps during peak time should be gone now! :sick:

What would you expect from Telscum, they have been ripping their customers off for decades.
