NOW Broadband £3.50 increase on broadband packages

Avoid NOW Broadband price increases by switching to 6G Internet!

Customers with Sky UK’s NOW Broadband, a popular sub-brand known for freezing their prices, have just received some unwelcome news.

Things are going to get tough for NOW Broadband Customers

Many other providers are raising their prices, and we’ll be making some changes. From 5 July 2023, the prices of our broadband membership plans will be going up by £3.50.”

Millions Forced to Cancel Broadband Contracts Due to High Costs

Citizens Advice Survey Highlights People having to cancel broadband contracts

A survey by Citizens Advice found that high living costs forced a million people to cancel their broadband contracts last year. The group says cheaper packages, called social tariffs, could help those struggling to afford their monthly broadband bill.

1 in 3 households struggles to pay for digital communications

According to Ofcom, one in three UK households struggle to pay for digital communication services. People receiving universal credit and other benefits are more likely to stop spending on broadband. They’re also more likely to fall behind on their broadband bills.

National ISP’s are not doing enough to help families

The government says it’s been working with the industry to create more affordable options starting at £10 per month. They’ve also made it easier for people on benefits to sign up for social tariff deals, and big companies like Sky and Virgin Media have promised to do more to promote these discounted packages.

Estimates suggest that as many as 4 million people in the UK could be eligible for the reduced broadband deals.

Citizens Advice thinks additional pressure is needed to encourage firms to inform customers of social tariffs. It said industry watchdogs like Ofcom need to “hold firms’ feet to the fire” until they improve their social tariff take-up rates.

Awareness of Social Tariffs is not good enough

“People are being priced out of internet access at a worrying rate,” said Dame Clare Moriarty, chief executive of Citizens Advice. “Social tariffs should be the industry’s safety net, but firms’ current approach to providing and promoting them isn’t working.”

The internet has become a necessary utility in daily life, and lack of access is a significant driver of social, economic, and digital exclusion. People without a home broadband connection struggle with job applications, managing benefits, booking GP appointments, staying in touch with loved ones, and finding lower prices online.

Low Cost Broadband from 6G Internet

6G Internet is one of the most affordable independent broadband providers in the North West. Our superfast packages start from just £18.99 p/m and include free installation, unlimited data, and a no mid-contract price rise promise.

Home expert reveals the worst places to put your broadband router

Bank Holiday weekends often put a strain on your broadband, as families stay home and friends visit to enjoy the extra day off. And that means your internet may feel slower than usual. 

But there are some tips you can follow to ensure it performs at its peak potential over the long weekends.

Great tips to get great wifi coverage at home 

The quality of your Wi-Fi signal depends on several factors, including router placement, obstacles, and the number of devices connected at any one time. 

Keeping routers away from kitchen appliances and not positioning them next to objects like fish tanks will help maintain a strong signal.

But you can do more to keep your connection running super smooth over the bank holidays. 

Home expert and Feng Shui master Cliff Tan recently shared his five best pieces of advice for speeding up your connection.

Let’s check them out.

5 ways to instantly speed up your wifi

Location, location, location!

Position your router centrally in your home, particularly in rooms where you rely on it for browsing, streaming, and gaming, advises Tan. Place it high up and facing forward to ensure signal coverage throughout the room. The Wi-Fi signal radiates outward in a circular pattern, so a central location will help maximise range.

Don’t hide your router, keep it visible!

“Energy is best felt when it can be seen, even for Wi-Fi signals,” says Tan. Place the router where it’s visible from the locations where you use it most, such as an office or living room. This provides a direct signal path for your devices. Walls, floors, and other solid objects can absorb or weaken the signal, so keeping clear lines of sight between the router and devices is crucial.

Avoid clutter around your broadband router

Clutter can obstruct the natural flow of energy in a room, according to Tan. Apply this Feng Shui principle to broadband connectivity by keeping items that might interfere with your signal, like baby monitors, speakers, and TVs, away from the router. These devices can create electromagnetic interference, reducing the signal quality and causing connectivity issues.

Be mindful of mirrors!

Large wall mirrors can interfere with connectivity due to their thin metallic coating, which can reflect Wi-Fi signals, confusing your devices. Tan suggests keeping your router at least a few metres away from any sizable mirrors.

Focus on five elements

Feng Shui focuses on the five elements—earth, wood, fire, metal, and water—to describe our surroundings. Pay close attention to metal devices or surfaces when moving your router, as they can often interfere with Wi-Fi signals. For example, a metal TV cabinet could affect your router’s signal.

Try these tips out and see how they work for you. It’s important to note that they won’t increase the actual speeds. However, they can help you maximise your internet connection by optimising Wi-Fi signal quality and strength. 

And that means everyone in the house can enjoy perfect internet, at the same time, all the time.

Bridging the Digital Divide: How 6G Internet is Boosting Digital Inclusion in Blackburn

In today’s increasingly digital world, access to reliable and affordable internet is crucial for individuals and communities to thrive, both economically and socially.

But unfortunately, many people still struggle to get online.

Digital Exclusion in the North West

Digital exclusion is a nationwide problem. However, it’s especially prevalent across the North West. In fact, there’s a stark north/south divide when it comes to digital inclusiveness. A report by Manchester University found that 53% of people in the North West rarely or never use the internet, compared to 35% in the South East.

Levelling Up Communities in the North West

Bridging the UK’s digital divide is a key part of “levelling up” communities across the North West. So as an independent broadband company based and founded in the North, 6G Internet is stepping up to help.

In this blog post, we’ll highlight how 6G Internet is driving digital inclusion in Blackburn, by providing FREE broadband and positively impacting the local community through local partnerships and our referral partners.

But first, let’s take a close look at digital exclusion and its negative impacts.

What is digital exclusion?

Digital exclusion is the unequal access to and use of digital technologies due to factors like affordability, infrastructure, digital literacy, and personal circumstances.

Essential Online Services for all

People who are digitally excluded often may face difficulties accessing essential online services, participating in the digital economy, and taking advantage of remote work or education opportunities.

Who could be digitally excluded?

Digital exclusion can affect various demographics. However, it disproportionately impacts disadvantaged communities, low-income households, older people, and those living in rural areas with limited connectivity. 

The negative impact of digital exclusion

The digital divide can worsen existing social, economic, and educational inequalities, as digitally excluded individuals are at a significant disadvantage in a society where digital skills and basic literacy are becoming more and more essential.

The negative impacts of digital exclusion include:

  • Limited access to essential services.
  • Less work and educational opportunities.
  • Social isolation.

What’s being done to promote digital inclusion?

Social tariffs are one way to help increase digital inclusion and close the UK’s digital divide.

Families could make massive savings by applying for a social tariff

Social tariffs are low-cost broadband deals offered to customers on government benefits. They help make internet access more affordable for low-income households. These deals typically cost between £10 and £20 per month and save families around £200 a year.

Eligibility for social tariffs

Social tariff eligibility is based on receiving government benefits, including Universal Credit, Pension Credit, Jobseeker’s Allowance, and Income Support. 

Barriers to applying for social tariffs

But despite the potential benefits of social tariffs, many eligible households remain unaware of their existence. A recent report by Ofcom found that more than half of low-income households in the UK are in the dark about bargain broadband deals. In Blackburn alone, around 14,000 low-income households could be eligible for the discounted rates.

Ofcom encourages ISPs to promote social tariffs

Regulators are encouraging broadband firms to make their customers more aware of social tariffs. And while there has been a slight uptake in these deals, the same Ofcom report found that only 9% of those on a discounted rate found out about social tariffs through their provider.

And even if customers do learn about social tariffs, applying for them can feel like jumping through hoops. Providers offering social tariffs require customers to send in proof of their eligibility, which can be difficult for those without access to online services. Plus, many customers are put off applying for social tariffs due to the social stigma of talking about receiving financial assistance or sharing personal/sensitive information about their situation.

Ofcom publishes list of social tariffs from ISPs

Ofcom has published a list of social tariffs that ISPs provide. Many ISPs don’t publicise these low cost tariffs.

What is a social tariff?

Social tariffs are cheaper broadband and phone packages for people claiming Universal Credit, Pension Credit and some other benefits. Some providers call them ‘essential’ or ‘basic’ broadband. They’re delivered in the same way as normal packages, just at a lower price. Amid rising living costs, Ofcom is encouraging companies to offer social tariffs to help customers on low incomes.

The Internet for Everyone Campaign in Blackburn

The free internet we supply across Blackburn is helping build better communities and empowering people to take more control over their own lives.

We’re working with charities, including Age UK Blackburn. It uses our free connections to provide digital skills training to older people. Thanks to these classes, seniors can now access essential online services, shop online, and stay in touch with friends and family.

“Lack of affordable broadband is one of the main factors that lead to digital exclusion amongst older people,” says an Age UK Blackburn with Darwen spokesperson. “Working with 6G Internet means we can help older people get connected free of charge.”

Internet for Homeless Pods in Blackburn

We’re also installing free internet connections in 10 homeless pods in Blackburn. The self-contained pods offer emergency accommodation for people without permanent residence.

“This is a great initiative to help people currently living in the pods,” said Councillor Phil Riley, Leader of Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council. “It will allow those living in the shelters to get online and access the relevant documents, learn new skills, and send emails to help them on their way to improving their lives.”

I am not in Blackburn is Internet for Everyone available?

The Internet for Everyone campaign is our commitment to helping the communities that we serve become more digitally connected, and we’re always looking for new referral partners and organisations to work with as we expand our network.

If we can help connect you or your organisation to free broadband, we want to hear from you right now. You can contact our Internet for Everyone team on 0800 246 6767. Or visit our dedicated page.

Fibre Speed Internet Coverage Surges Across the UK

Fibre Speed Broadband For All

The UK government’s ambitious project to expand fibre broadband coverage across the entire country is in full swing, with new data showcasing the regions leading the charge.

New data reveals fibre broadband coverage is making significant progress, with several regions surging ahead in providing ultra-fast internet access to their residents.

According to an interactive map published by the Express, fibre internet has now reached 80% coverage across the UK, marking a crucial milestone in the government’s project.

Can you already get fibre speed broadband in your area?

The UK government’s goal is to achieve 100% coverage of gigabit-capable broadband by the end of 2025. This initiative aims to ensure that businesses and households across the country can access high-speed internet, fostering economic growth and bridging the digital divide.

But some regions in the UK have fallen behind in the race to provide fibre broadband, including the North West.

Surprisingly many national Internet Service Providers (ISPs) do not provide fibre broadband to all areas in all towns in the North West.

In many areas like Blackburn, Burnley, Bolton and Blackpool national suppliers do not provide fibre broadband. 6G internet use fixed wireless technology to deliver fibre speed broadband to homes in our ever expanding network.

6G Internet Fibre speed broadband is coming to Bolton, Burnley & Blackpool!

The North West has a long way to go before it catches up with many other parts of the UK. Towns like Bolton, Burnley, and Blackpool are still fibre poor, with less than half of residents having access to a fibre-ready connection.

Give us your postcode & house number & we will tell you the options available at your premises!
Our fibre speed fixed wireless network is expanding chance is we can get you set up today!

But 6G Internet is changing that!

We’re building and maintaining fixed wireless networks in towns and cities across the North West. We’ve connected thousands of people in Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington, Padiham and Burnley to super fast, affordable, and reliable fixed wireless fibre speed broadband.

And with more networks planned and on the way, it won’t be long before everyone across the North West can benefit from 6G internet fibre-powered fixed wireless internet.

“Fibre broadband is not just a service; it’s a game-changer,” says Tara Murray – Product Manager for 6G Internet. “It opens up a world of possibilities, connecting people in ways that were once impossible.”

“At 6G Internet, we believe everyone deserves access to fast, fibre speed reliable internet, and that’s why we’re building new fixed wireless networks to connect people and transform the way they live, work, and communicate for the better. The networks we build will ensure nobody gets left behind during the UK’s digital revolution.”

Are you getting the broadband speeds you’re paying for? 

Check you are getting the broadband speed you are paying for!

Whether working from home, streaming movies, or gaming online, a reliable and fast internet connection is essential. But not all broadband services are created equal. It’s important to understand the different types of broadband speeds you need and how to check your connection to ensure you’re getting the best possible service.

Let’s talk about broadband speeds

The speed of your broadband connection is measured in megabits per second or Mbps. This refers to how quickly data can be downloaded or uploaded from the router in your house the speed at your computer or device will depend on how you set up your local area network (LAN)

Broadband usage at home

For light usage, such as browsing the web and checking email, a speed of around 10Mbps is sufficient. For streaming HD videos and online gaming, a speed of around 50Mbps is recommended. For downloading large files, uninterrupted homeworking, and streaming 4K videos, a speed of 100Mbps is ideal.

Connect more devices with a WiFi 6 router

You’ll also need a higher Mbps if several devices are connected to the network. This prevents lag, jitter, and annoying buffering, meaning everyone in the house can enjoy a smooth, seamless internet experience at the same time.

Making sure you’re getting the right broadband speed

Several online tools can help you determine the speed of your connection. One of the most popular and reliable tools is the Google broadband speed checker. It’s free to use and accurately measures your download and upload speeds.

It’s also super simple!

Use this Broadband Speed Test from Google, then click the run speed test. You’ll get results within a few seconds. They include download speed, upload speed, and response time. These measurements will help you determine if your connection is performing as it should be and that you’re getting the speeds you pay for.

Run the test a few times at different points of the day to get an accurate overview of speeds and network performance.

Why is my internet so slow?

Several factors can impact your internet speeds and connection. Thankfully, many of them can be sorted out with a quick and easy fix.

One common issue is the distance between devices and the router. The further away you are from the router, the weaker your connection will be.

Other factors that could impact your broadband speed include network congestion, interference from other devices, and obstacles, such as concrete reinforced walls and even fish tanks.

What else can I do to improve slow broadband speeds?

Firstly, try restarting your router. This can often help to refresh your connection and improve speeds. However, avoid switching off your router overnight. This is when providers send out updates. If you miss these, your network performance will degrade and slow down.

Try moving your router to a different location or upgrading to a higher-speed broadband package. You could also consider investing in a signal booster or Mesh system to improve your signal strength.

The right speeds for every customer

Broadband speeds are an essential consideration when choosing an internet service provider. With so many different options available, it’s important to understand your individual needs and select a package that meets them.

6G Internet has a package to suit everyone – and always for a very affordable price.

A 6G Internet Statement: Why We’ll Never Raise Broadband Bills Mid-contract

At 6G Internet, we understand the importance of keeping things simple, transparent, and, most importantly, fair for our customers. This is why we’re proud to introduce our no mid-contract price rise guarantee. 

In a world where unexpected price hikes have become an unfortunate norm, we stand by our commitment to providing the best possible broadband service without subjecting you to any unpleasant surprises. 

In this blog, we’ll explore the issue of mid-contract price rises and explain why 6G Internet has chosen to do things differently.

Mid-Contract Broadband Price Rises Explained

Broadband companies usually offer contracts ranging from 12 to 24 months, with the monthly cost fixed for the entire contract duration. 

But some companies incorporate sneaky clauses in their contracts that allow them to increase the price during the contract term, which is known as a mid-contract price rise. 

These price hikes are often linked to inflation or other market factors, and they can significantly affect customers’ monthly bills.

Why Other Broadband suppliers Raise Prices Mid-Contract

There are several reasons why broadband companies raise their customer’s bills mid-contract:

  1. Inflation: As the cost of living and doing business increases, companies may decide to pass on these additional costs to their customers to protect their profit margins.
  2. Market competition: Companies may initially offer lower prices to attract customers, only to increase them later once they have secured a customer base.
  3. Increased operational costs: Some companies might face unexpected expenses, such as network upgrades or infrastructure maintenance, and decide to recoup these costs by raising prices.

Broadband Companies Known for Mid-Contract Price Rises

Many well-known broadband providers put price rise clauses into their contracts, including major players like BT, Virgin Media, and Sky. These increases can vary in amount, but they typically range from 1% to 5% per year, depending on the provider and the contract terms. 

For a customer paying £40 per month, a 5% increase would translate to an additional £2 per month or £24 per year. This may not seem significant, but these increases can add up over time, especially for customers on tight budgets.

And much larger price rises are incoming. BT, EE, Plusnet, Sky, TalkTalk and Three have all announced an April price increase. According to money-saving expert Martin Lewis, some of their customers will soon start paying 13% more for their broadband.

6G Internet’s No Mid-Contract Price Rise Guarantee

At 6G Internet, we believe in putting our customers first – and treating them fairly.

Our no mid-contract price rise guarantee ensures that the price you sign up for is the price you’ll pay for the entire duration of your contract. 

We will never hit our customers with unexpected price hikes that can strain their budgets.

We recognize that it is not fair or the right thing to do. Instead, we focus on offering competitive and very affordable prices from the outset and maintaining our high-quality broadband service without the need for hidden fees or unexpected increases. 

A promise to our customers

The no mid-contract price rise guarantee is a promise to all our customers. By eliminating the uncertainty of mid-contract price increases, we’re offering them peace of mind in an industry riddled with surprise charges, hidden fees, and rising bills 

Choose 6G Internet for a broadband experience that puts you first.
