Eclipse Internet has launched Lightspeed, a fibre broadband package, that offers download speeds of 'up to' 40Mbps.

Web users can choose from either 'up to' 2Mbps or 'up to' 10Mbps upload speeds on the broadband connection. Furthermore, users can choose from five different data caps ranging from 10GB to unlimited. If the limit is reached, Eclipse says it will allow users to choose between having their speed capped until the end of the month (although Eclipse says it will still be fast enough for essentials like web browsing and email) or purchase a bigger data allowance in incraments of 1GB.

Eclipse is also offering unlimited usage overnight and throughout the weekend, while those signing up to a 24 month package will receive free connection and a free wireless router.

"We believe that home broadband users are very pragmatic about choosing the right superfast fibre broadband for them, and want simple packages that they can switch up or switch down if necessary," said Clodagh Murphy, director of Eclipse.

"That's why all our fibre products are fully flexible, giving our customers complete peace of mind that they are not locked into a package that might not meet their needs at a later stage. We are aware that the improved experience that customers will receive with superfast fibre broadband will ultimately start to change their internet behaviour and we want to be in a position to support our customers on that journey."

Prices start from £21.50 per month for the 2Mbps upload speed package with a 10GB data cap. The 10Mbps upload speed package costs an extra £5 per month, and increasing the data allowance ranges from between £3.50 and £37.50 per month depending upon which package you opt for.
