Easing the pressure on households with free broadband for six months
Monday, 26 September. South Wales. Ogi – Wales’s home-grown broadband company – has today announced a new broadband and voice deal, which offers its full fibre services free for six months, in a bid to help ease pressures on household bills this winter.
The Ogi Max deal, available across the towns and villages where Ogi is rolling out its new Gigabit-capable network, provides households that sign-up to 24 month contracts with the fourth utility free for the first six months.
The broadband provider, which has also reduced its overall package prices by over 10%, fixing them until at least April 2023, estimates customers could save up to £390, depending on the package they choose.
The deal is designed to offer people Ogi’s fibre services in full, which is unique in many of its roll out areas, without immediately adding to already strained household outgoings. With strong customer satisfaction scores consistently exceeding 95% – well above the 85% industry standard – the Wales-based provider is steadily building a positive reputation for its home-grown services and customer support.
Ogi’s Chief Revenue Officer, Sally-Anne Skinner, said: “We’re all feeling the squeeze right now, and here at Ogi we want to help people manage the pressure with a no-strings-attached offer. Not only will households be saving on their broadband utility costs; but fast, reliable broadband can also drive down other household costs too: helping us work from home without having to commute; bringing us better entertainment without having to pay to go out; even enabling us to manage our electricity and heating bills through smart, connected technologies.
“Offering our services to new customers for free for six months feels like the right thing to do, and allows people to try out our services, with a peace of mind they won’t pay anything until Springtime next year. What’s more, we’re confident once people sign up, they’ll stay on board and become Ogi champions for the long run!”
Chief Executive Officer, Ben Allwright, added: “Ogi is the internet company made and rooted in Wales. We’re driving a digital revolution in communities from Pembrokeshire to Monmouthshire, embedding next-generation connectivity – and the possibilities that come with it – into the very fabric of our towns and villages.
“With other utility companies pushing up their prices, as a fourth utility provider, we’re proud to be in a position to support Welsh customers in this way, bringing a service that has the potential to make a big difference to many more people this winter and beyond.”
The catch? There isn’t one. As with all broadband providers, customers just need to enter into a 24-month contract. Once the offer period comes to an end, customers continue with a fixed rate on one of Ogi’s competitive tariffs for the duration of the agreement [18-months].
