Had a quick search around but couldn't find anyone with UFB plans that aren't 12/18/24 month contract.

Anyone know of anyone doing this?

Highly doubtful.

Your ISP has to sign a 2 year contract with the LFC and will have to keep on paying the LFC for that service even if you move address, so there is no way any ISP could afford to not have contracts.

Don't see any massive ETF's listed on the Slingshot site for UFB and I seem to remember Vodafone no obligation or charge trials being offered to people assuming I remember correctly.

ETC charges are all fully documented in the LFC price books which are all public documents on the appropiate websites.

All pricing is a "may charge", but in the real world when you're looking at such massive install costs as UFB involves I don't see LFC's walking away from installs without charging something or there are going to be serious ongoing financial losses that will result.

Alright guys thanks for the advice. Makes sense now why I can't find any non-contract plans.
