SSE extends telecoms offer into broadband

broadbandEnergy giant SSE, which trades as Scottish Hydro, has move into the phone and broadband market and made it available to those who do not take its electricity or gas customers.

It runs off the BT Openreach network and there are special offers for new users who sign up before 16 September.

The company has been offering telecoms services more than 10 years but says the broadband deal steps up its activity in the sector.

According to, while the broadband is free for two years, the line rental comes with either a 12-month or 18-month contract.

“Which you’re offered depends on your location and will be made clear to you before you sign up.”

When the initial 12- or 18-month line rental contract ends, SSE says you’ll continue to get free broadband for the remainder of the 24-month period, while your line rental will also continue without you needing to sign a new contract.

Sally Francis,’s senior consumer writer, says: “It’s unusual to see two-year deals on broadband and home phone services, but when you compare the price over one year to others in the market, it’s the cheapest simple deal currently available.”
