Included with your Fido Broadband connection is a free 12 month subscription for up to 3 users to AVG Internet Security, and an optional Fido Wireless Router which provides both IPv4 and IPv6 support and both Firewall and NAT capabilities.
Why Choose Fido?Well quite simply, we offer a no mess, no fuss, no nonsense broadband service. No hidden prices, no fancy deals where if you don’t make a certain number of calls per week wearing a pink hat you’ll suddenly find you have to pay an additional monthly charge / etc. We’ve been here since 2001 and we’re not going anywhere! We believe in providing a good quality service, at sensible prices. We aren’t always going to be the cheapest, but that extra pound a month goes a long way!
Another benefit a lot of people miss at first glance is the fact we operate exceptionally low contention on lines. Sky, BT, TalkTalk all contend lines at 20:1, 50:1 and beyond. Fido on the other hand are generally contended at worst 5:1 and usually at 1:1 or 2:1. This means no slow downs at peak times, and effectively a similar performance to that of a leased line – at a fraction of the price!.
Fido offers a comprehensive range of broadband solutions to suit most needs, whether you are a small to medium sized business, or a large corporate entity, we have a solution to meet your needs. – backed by world-class network infrastructure, unrivalled customer service and friendly technical support.
No gimmicks, or bundled deals where you end up paying through the nose without realising it and no hidden costs or penalties – just simple, clear, transparent pricing – and a good deal at that!
Still not sure? Why not try our ADSL/ADSL2 service risk free for 3 months. If at any point during the first 3 months you’re not completely happy, we’ll rip up the contract and give you your MAC code so you can migrate away. Ask one of our reps for more information.
Constant Quality MonitoringWe monitor your broadband so you don’t have to!
CQM – Constant Quality Monitoring – means we keep an eye on your broadband connection in real time and keep logs of line statistics to compare for detailed fault reporting to BT Openreach. In fact, these graphs are proving so useful, BT are now asking for copies of them to help them find and resolve problems at their Exchanges that their own monitoring is unable to identify!

Bonded Broadband from Fido.Net
Bonded Broadband from Fido.Net takes your existing Fido Broadband lines and merges them together to provide faster upload and download speeds for a fraction of the costs of a leased line service.
The Bonded service is an additional subscription which costs just £10 per month per line, and provides combined download speeds without the need for any additional special equipment (just configure the routers on your network to connect to us using the special account details we give you and immediately benefit from increased download speeds per session). To bond upstream requires additional equipment at the customer end. The Fido FireBrick enables end users to bond together multiple xDSL connections (be it ADSL, ADSL Max, ADSL2, FTTC, etc) to obtain a faster upload and download speed.
Initially you will need to order multiple ADSL connections from Fido.Net. These can be by migrating your existing service(s) to Fido or by ordering new services. Once these services have been installed, you can then purchase an upgrade or “Bolt On” to enable the Bonding Service.
Bonding only works on ADSL connections with FidoNet, and requires additional services be configured in the RADIUS profile of your account to work. Downstream bonding requires a minimum of 2 lines configured with a single IP address on our BRAS. Upstream bonding requires the above in addition to a Fido FireBrick at the Customer site.
