It’s all happening down at ISP Zen, with the company announcing its move into the world of super-fast fibre, as well as doubling up on its data allowance.

Zen expects to launch a fibre service, offering customers up to 40Mbps speeds, come September.

The firm is guaranteeing a minimum download speed of 15Mbps, as obviously in the real world you won’t get the full headline speed.

Packages will offer theoretical upload speeds of either 2Mbps or 10Mbps, and the fibre lines will only be slightly more expensive than existing ADSL connections (PC Pro reports the difference will be £5 or £10).

The ISP is also planning 100Mbps lines, but those will be further away in the future. Trials will begin soon enough, however.

Existing customers will be pleased to learn that Zen has doubled up its download allowance as of the beginning of this month.

Those subscribing to Zen Lite, Zen Active, Zen Pro or Zen Office will be affected by this boon.
