OkeyDokey,

yup £17.22 a month unlimited broadband and calls + mobile minutes!!! !!! including line rental and just an extra £6.51 per month for fibre!!!

Was up for renewal and this is what i wangled!.....

Unlimited Broadband usually 9.99 pm
unlimited call package usually £5.00 pm
100 Minutes to uk mobiles usually £3.00 per month...
Line rental usually £15.95 per month
Call features package (caller id/ call divert) usually £3.00pm

Total Usual Cost per month: £36.94

My deal
Unlimited Broadband £2.49pm
unlimited call package £5.00 pm
100 Minutes to uk mobiles £3.00 pm
Line rental saver works out: £12.98
Call features package (caller id/ call divert) free
Total monthly cost £23.47!!!!
i than asked him to throw in a amazon voucher... he gave me £75!

so total yearly cost is now 23.47 x 12 - 75 = 206.64

so monthly thats: £17.22 a month!!!!!

i personally than went for the 24month option... which took monthly cost up to £20.36 - still a good deal though!

if you dont need the mobile minutes thats another £3 a month off!!!

i reckon its the best possible deal i could have got!!!!

PS they also offered fibre broadband @ £9.00 a month which would work out £23.73 for unlimited fibre broadband including line rental!!!!

THATS JUST BARMY CHEAP...

PPS, The 30 minute wait time recording when you call up is apparently old as it only took me 3 minutes or so to be answered by the sales dept and than when i got transferred to retentions it was on the 3rd ring they answered!

Wonderful so pleased for you (_;)

I've tried twice ( 2 x Separate Rentals) to get a good retention deal with Plusnet in the last 2 months and they were only prepared to match existing deals at the time. Its just think its luck of the draw sometimes to get them to add extras.

I believe it is only 100 minutes for £3. not 140 minutes.
https://www.plus.net/home-broadband/tariffs/anytime

Just signed up myself yesterday for similar £8.99 for 12 months with £75 amazon voucher.
Copper broadband - free
£5 anytime phone
£3 100 mobile minutes
£0.99 caller id
+ line rental £12.99 prepaid

Also ordered the modem, but have no idea if it is tosh or not in comparison to a homehub 3.

p.s. Heat added.

Be aware that Plus Net apply internet traffic shaping (look at the Traffic Prioritsation drop down) so if you are a usenet user then probably look elsewhere.
http://www.plus.net/support/broadband/speed_guide/traffic_management.shtml

Fo me, excluding the Amazon voucher, I will be saving close to £200 over the year based upon my previous bill (mainly from the £3 100 mobile minutes and free bb for the year).
Just hope that the transition is smooth and Plus Net service in my area is better than some of the less than favourable reports from around the country.

Great deal though.

FWIW the best rentention deal I was offered from BT was: £13.85 bb + £5 anytime + £12.99 pre pay line rental = £32 pm + whatever billed phone calls on top)

Why? Just schedule it for midnight to 8 am and it will run at full speed surely? If I have a big download to do that's what I would do as they never restrict anything at night. I can't say I have ever seen anything slow down ever anyway. My connection gives me 72Mbps and has done from day one. Never had a speed test deviate from that by more than 1 or 2 Mb.

Been fine for me. Think it may help that I am in a Virgin Media cable area though so BT only get those of us who can't get cable. Keeps the contention down :)

be real nice to the guy in retentions, at the end of the day he/she is the sole power of what deal they are going to offer you.
#16
Thanks for the heads up! I just received an email from plusnet stating my line rental saver can now be renewed. I also have fibre broadband which still has 7 months to run, so not sure if they'll offer me a deal. Shall call and ask
#17
Did you get those prices for 24m or are they for a shorter term? If shorter, why opt for the longer term? Heat added.

Was offered the same but no Amazon voucher or free call feature package.

I just worked out what I would be paying over the year (using the discount they gave me) in comparison to the offers openly available online. It worked out I would be paying around 30pence more with the 'discount'.

I'm disappointed with these 'smoke and mirror' offers and have flagged it to their support team.

Indeed we do, but there are no rate limits imposed. The traffic management is there to prioritise time sensitive applications such as VoIP and Gaming over those that don't need an instant response. So in reality if you're downloading via usenet and have a 10Mb/s connection, you can download at 10Mb/s from usenet. If you then start playing a game that uses 1Mb/s then your usenet speed will lower to allow the gaming to function but will still download at around 9Mb/s. Obviously I've ignored any overheads here to keep it simple.

What option did you go for in the end out of interest?
