Toob already has a significant £50m construct to 100,000 premises within the Hampshire metropolis of Southampton, which is sort of full. On high of that they’ve additionally introduced builds for the close by cities of Aldershot, Eastleigh and Chandler’s Ford.

We should always level out that toob’s response seems to be primarily targeted upon their “normal assure of no in-contract value rises,” which doesn’t particularly stop them from growing their out-of-contract costs for brand new or re-contracting clients. However thus far the ISP has not modified their bundle and continues to be targeted on utilizing low pricing to draw subscribers away from the extra established gamers.
