John Lewis launch own-brand Broadband service

Broadband, Tech Digest news

John Lewis have entered the broadband services market, offering a branded broadband service either instore, online or over the phone.

Three separate packages are being offered; Standard, Unlimited and Fibre. Speeds range from (up to) 16MB to (up to) 38MB, with monthly data allowances coming in at 20GB for the standard package, 100GB for Fibre subscribers and no cap to the Unlimited package.

Subscribers will also need to grab a John Lewis telephone line rental (which obviously adds its own charges)

Therefore the Standard package costs £11 as a standalone broadband charge, but £24.50 with line rental. Unlimited packages start at £31.50. Both of these services come with 16MB speeds.

The Fibre plan starts as £38.50 per month, and will hit maximum speeds of 38MB.

“This move complements the range of services and products we offer – over 80 per cent of all our consumer electronics sales are WiFi enabled and we know our customers want the same honest and trustworthy experience from their internet provision as they would expect from any product they buy from us,” said John Lewis Telecoms Manager Adam Brown.

“John Lewis broadband gives customers an upfront and transparent price on a range of broadband and phone packages with no hidden terms and conditions, a simple 12 month contract with no hidden catches and the excellent customer service that we are renowned for.”

The new John Lewis Broadband replaces the previous Waitrose and Greenbee services. Any customers on those plans are encouraged to jump over to the new deals.
