Internet Access SoHo::1

SoHo::1 is our small business broadband package. It includes real fixed legacy IPv4 addresses and a block of routed IPv6 addresses. We offer both the slower ADSL services and the faster VDSL (Fibre to the cabinet) services (and even FTTP services) where available. The package is available with a copper pair or you can use with a phone line you buy from another Openreach based provider such as BT.

As this is a business product, all prices on this page are exclusive of VAT.

Quota Bonus

You don't have to use your quota each month, and it would be unusual for even a heavy user to reach a terabyte. Your next month starts with your normal quota again, but we also provide a Quota Bonus - which is half of the unused quota from the previous month. This applies even on the terabyte packages. This accumulates, i.e. the unused amount includes any unused bonus quota. If you buy any top-up, that is kept separate and keeps rolling over until all used. More details here.

Small business service

The SoHo::1 service is aimed at small business customers but can be purchased for home use (bear in mind prices on this page are VAT exclusive). It is very similar to our Home::1 domestic package. The main differences (apart from VAT invoices) is availability of additional legacy IPv4 address, a 2TB high usage option, and an option to make use of our VIP line monitoring service where our tech support staff will be alerted if your line is down (during office hours). SoHo::1 does not have the same automatic strict credit control measures as Home::1 - we'll talk to you before disconnecting you.


The two main types of broadband are ADSL and VDSL. The ADSL service uses a modem link all of the way back to the telephone exchange - this will have a lower speed for the modem sync (0-21Mb/s) depending on the line. VDSL uses a modem link only back to the main street cabinet, and so this is normally a much better service with a higher speed (0-80Mb/s) depending on the line. Which services are available depends on your location. For an estimate of the speed for your location, please use the order/quote form.

Note that a few people can get FTTP (Fibre to the premises) instead of VDSL - if this is available the quote/order form will show details and prices. The prices are generally the same as VDSL and we offer 80/20 speeds. We do not offer the "FTTP On Demand" product.

Monthly quota

You pick your monthly quota when you order. You can change your quota at any time, taking effect from the next billing month. Terabyte quota is not available on older 20CN BT lines.

If you exceed your quota, you can either have the line stop working, offering a top-up page, or slow down dramatically until the next billing month, or automatically buy top-up. Top-up costs £10 for 50GB extra usage, which carries on month after month until used up.

Modem and WiFi

We offer various equipment which you can use with our broadband services. This is all optional and you are welcome to use your own ADSL/VDSL modem and of course your own network equipment and WiFi access points as you wish.

If you order with your SoHo::1 service we can supply a broadband ADSL/VDSL modem with WiFi for £50. We also offer various whole office multiple access point WiFi solutions on the order/quote form.

Bonded lines

It is possible to have multiple SoHo::1 lines on the same login. Each must have a monthly quota which can be changed independently. The lines can be used to bond uplink and downlink, or can be used as a fall-back arrangement. If a line runs out of quota then there is a balancing process for the quota remaining on the other lines. Only once all of the quota on all of the broadband lines at the site has run out does the normal action for blocking, slowing, or auto-top-up take place.
