Understanding monthly usage allowances
Our Business Unlimited broadband packages have no
fixed monthly limits.
I'm not a fan of long term contracts, are there
any arrangements we can come to?
Yes. A 12 month contract is the default option, however, if you would rather have a 1 month minimum contract, this can be arranged via a one-off upfront extra £49.95 fee at the start of the contract. The monthly price remains as listed in the table above. Please call us on 01746 708090 if you need further clarity on this option.
Understanding line sync and expected speeds
The actual speed achieved depends upon the distance
from the exchange and quality of the telephone line. At certain times,
congestion within the network may also result in reduced speeds. In all
cases we will provide you with an estimated "sync range" that your telephone
line will support prior to agreeing a contract with ourselves. If you wish to discuss
the quality of your line in technical detail, please do get in touch. We
will happily go into detailed specifics.
What about Traffic Shaping, Traffic Management,
Traffic Throttling or Port Blocking?
We are very proud that our Aquiss Business Unlimited
broadband packages are supplied as a "Pure Bandwidth" service. What we mean by
this is the service is supplied free of any form of shaping, management,
restrictions or blocks.
How long will it take to migrate a broadband
service to Aquiss?
Migrations (via a MAC Key) are completed within 7 to
10 days, although it’s often even less than this. Bulk migrations can take
up to 10 working days depending on quantity. You can expect a short service
interruption of between 20 minutes and 2 hours on the day of migration – but
it’s worth it once it’s done!
If I want to end my contract, is there a charge?
Maybe, depending on what your looking to do. If
your not moving your service to another ISP, known as migrating, there would
be a £33.33 Broadband Cease fee. If your migrating away from Aquiss (via the
use of a MAC Key) there would be no charge. Of course, if there are any
remaining months left on your minimum contract to complete, you would also need
to settle these in full. It should be noted that charges will also be triggered
if your telephone service is cancelled causing our broadband service to be
I am moving premises, is there a charge?
Yes. There will be a £33.33 Broadband Cease fee to end the service at your current property. If there are any
remaining months left on your minimum contract to complete, whilst at this property, you would also need to settle these in full. Contracts are not transferred between properties. Reactivation charges at your new property are possible,
subject to contract options available and availability. It should be noted that charges will also be triggered
if your telephone service is cancelled causing our broadband service to be ceased.
I notice there are a couple of options to
increase the upload sync up to 2.0 Mbps. Do I need any special hardware?
Yes. To take advantage of enhanced upload syncs, a
router or modem that supports ADSL2+ Annex M is required.
Is the Aquiss Business Unlimited broadband range available in
Coverage of our Business Unlimited range is available
to around 75% of the UK population. If you wish to enquire about

Are there any other options I can think about?
Our Business Unlimited broadband packages come with a range of options
that can be added at any time to enhance the service further, if you so
- You can upgrade from a
single static IP to a no-nat range of 8 static IPs for £1.67 a month (£10.00
one-off setup charge).
- You can upgrade from our standard SMTP service to Authenticated SMTP (send
emails through Aquiss from your mobile!) for £0.83 a month.
