Fibrus Broadband: What's on offer?

Fibrus broadband offer an independent full fibre to the home network, with wide coverage and availability in Northern Ireland, and initial connections in North West England.

Fibrus give customers the choice between three broadband deals:

  • Full Fibre 100 / Full Fibre 150 (dependent upon location)
  • Full Fibre 300
  • Full Fibre 1000

Each of these plans comes with a WiFi 6 enabled Amazon eero router, and the option to add a home phone line with anytime calls for an extra £9.99 per month.

Fibrus offer a number of benefits with their broadband deals that are worth highlighting, including:

  • No mid-contract price rises - no annual price rises during the minimum term
  • Contract buy-out - to help customers switch to Fibrus even when they're still in contract with another provider
  • Amazon eero app based parental controls
  • A second Amazon eero router for improved wireless coverage included with Full Fibre 300 and above
  • UK-based customer support

There is currently no setup fee to pay to have Fibrus broadband installed in your home, and deals come with a 24-month contract and reduced prices for the introductory period.

Fibrus broadband speeds

Full Fibre 150 146Mb 30Mb
Full Fibre 300 286Mb 100Mb
Full Fibre 1000 946Mb 300Mb

The advertised averages here must be received by at least 50% of Fibrus customers during the peak hours of 8pm to 10pm in the evening when the network is busiest.

While upload speeds on Fibrus broadband aren't symmetrical, they're faster than equivalent packages on the Openreach FTTP and Virgin Media networks.

The Full Fibre 1000 gigabit deal is also faster on average at peak times than equivalent gigabit plans from BT, Sky, Plusnet, and TalkTalk.

New customer offers

Fibrus offer new customers money-off their broadband deals when they sign up for the first time. These introductory offers currently give customers up to £15 off per month for the length of the minimum term.

New customers also get free setup and installation with a network engineer, as well as an Amazon eero router.

It may also be possible for new Fibrus broadband customers to have their existing contract paid off by the provider for switching during a minimum term.

Key terms of Fibrus broadband deals

Fibrus broadband comes with a minimum term contract of 24 months, cancellation before the end of this period will incur early termination charges. With the provider charging the lesser of £30 or the monthly fee for any remaining months on the contract.

Fibrus promise customers no mid-contract price hikes however, so unavoidable annual price rises won't affect Fibrus broadband customers during their minimum term.

Lastly, while the Amazon eero routers and full fibre kit are provided free of charge, they remain property of Fibrus and need to be returned if a customer cancels their service, or they could be subject to a replacement fee.
