Giganet, the leading local Internet Service Provider (ISP), has announced the launch of its full-fibre broadband services in Salisbury. Giganet Salisbury is a collaboration between local broadband provider Giganet, and Openreach, who have installed the fibre infrastructure across the city. Giganet are the only local independent provider who have direct access to the new full-fibre ultrafast broadband network, and so can offer the best prices and support.

Salisbury will be one of the first cities in the UK to go completely full-fibre and leave behind the Victorian-era copper telephone network that was never designed for today’s Internet usage. As part of Openreach’s infrastructure, up to 20,000 homes and business in the city will be able to receive up to 1Gb/s speeds, with Giganet able to provide the top 1Gb/s services from 23rd March 2020. The full-fibre technology is future-proofed and able to scale beyond 1 Gigabit per second in the years to come. Giganet’s prices in Salisbury will start from just £35 per month for a full-fibre connection with no line rental required.

Salisbury’s citywide full-fibre roll-out is around 80% complete, with the remaining schedule to be reached by the end of March 2020. From March, Giganet will start accepting orders via the Giganet website for homes and businesses to access the exclusive full-fibre only broadband network. Residents and businesses alike will be able to search their postcode and select the service best suited to their needs and budgets, all the way up to the ultimate full 1Gb/s package for just £79 per month1.
Not only is Giganet Salisbury the only local ISP provider to offer home and business broadband services, but the prices put Giganet as the most competitive full-fibre ISP in Salisbury over even the largest national providers2.
