London-based New Call Telecom today announced the launch of a £2 per month unlimited broadband package offering. Sold under the Fuel Broadband brand, customers will also receive a Chromecast as part of the package, allowing them to stream online video content, music and anything from the web directly to their television.

Launched in October 2014, Fuel Broadband specialises in providing UK consumers with simple, low-cost broadband packages. Customers who sign up for a 12-month contract will receive unlimited broadband for £2 per month for six months, and £4 per month thereafter. Phone subscribers will also benefit from free calls in the evenings and at the weekend.

New customers will also be provided with a Chromecast as part of the offer. A digital media player developed by Google with a retail value of £30, it enables people to stream video content via Wi-Fi directly to their television and supports a range of video on demand services, including Netflix, YouTube, BBC iPlayer, BT Sport and NOW TV, allowing users to watch the latest TV and film releases.

Nigel Eastwood, CEO of New Call Telecom, said:

“There's a lot of demand in the UK for fast, unlimited broadband at a low cost. Unlike some other companies, we haven't bundled together lots of 'extras' many of our customers won't use. Instead, we have favoured simplicity and flexibility over bells and whistles.

“We are certainly seeing this approach work. Unprecedented growth has meant that we have increased our customer base by 227% and turnover has increased at roughly £20 million per annum. We were acquiring up to 12,000 customers a month in late 2013 and early 2014, and we intend to maintain this momentum into 2015.”

“But we also recognise that more people use their Internet to watch the latest films and catch up on TV. That's why in this new package we've included a Chromecast at no extra cost, letting people stream video content straight to their TVs. Customers will then be able to add video on demand services, like BBC iPlayer and Netflix, when they like. This is about giving customers back control of their digital lives.”
