John Lewis now selling broadband for some reason
The cult of John Lewis (all workers are a 'family' apparently, like a retail Waco or something) has decided to branch out a little and is now offering broadband to everyone.
There's three packages available, with the basic lot setting you back a very reasonable £11 per month. The vague catch is that you have to take a John Lewis phoneline too, which costs £13.50 per month. Still pretty cheap. For your money, you get speeds (up to, natch) 16Mb with a monthly 20GB download limit, despite the offputting download limit.
This service replaces the existing Waitrose and Greenbee broadband and apparently, there's no hidden fees or activation costs, which makes a change.
They'll also be offering an Unlimited package which offers the same speed at Standard but with no download limits. That'll cost you £18 per month, not including line rental. The top package, called Fibre, will cost you £25 per month with speeds of 38Mb and a 100GB monthly usage limit.
Adam Brown, telecoms manager at John Lewis and all-round commerce David Koresh, said: "This move complements the range of services and products we offer - over 80 per cent of our consumer electronics sales are Wi-Fi enabled and we know our customers want the same honest and trustworthy experience from their internet provision as they would expect from any product they buy from us."
"John Lewis broadband gives customers an upfront and transparent price on a range of broadband and phone packages with no hidden terms and conditions, a simple 12 month contract with no hidden catches and the excellent customer service that we are renowned for."
Alright Adam, calm down.
