I just phoned Plusnet to cancel my £5.99 promo deal as it was only for 3 months and they offered me 60GB a month and line rental for a amazing £20.74 per month. I am not in a cable area so this is a cracking deal in my opinion.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm about to cancel my deal. I had the 3 months £5.99 on a 12 month contract, the 12 months is just up now.

I thought there would be a penalty for leaving before 12 months but it looks like you just pay the free connection fee back to them.....the same as after the 12 months!!

O2 have great prices if your already a mobile customers and in their broadband area, I can only get the most basic with them for £26 per month!

I've just renewd with O2, as soon to be moving and am being moved onto their new top package (I'm currently on fully unlimited) of 250GB a month for free for 12 months and only have to pay £7.50 a month for their line rental, now thats what I call a good deal!

however, it was a retention deal and I had to do a bit of talking so not everyone will be able to get it.......

60GB! More than cracking, some would say unbelievable! Do you think they'd chuck in a few free unicorns?
#4
My hubby used Plusnet in his flat, complained that their line speeds were shocking, so great you can download up to 60Gb, but good luck getting that much...

avoid they throttle everything like being on dial up

Are you confusing your download allowance of 60GB with speed of 60MB (which you wouldn't get in the first place).

I am sure you can get unlimited downloads plus line rental for the same price or less

oops you do know that the NEW packages are throttled......not just capped for total usage but also heavily bandwidth throttled during peak hours.

O2 users should stay on the old packages for as long as possible...as soon as you 'resign' or changes packages you'll get a throttled connection.

Do Sky BB throttle their connections ? £10 p/m without being a customer of Sky is a great deal.

Looks good, dirtdigby. I'm about to switch from O2 Access to this service. They're refreshingly open and honest about how and when they throttle traffic:

I use to be on Sky unlimited but I kept getting nasty emails quoting unfair usage... All I used it for was a bit of surfing & watching sky player!!!!!

The best ISP out there by a long way is Bethere in my opinion. This deal is really poor in comparison, for £18 a month you get a connection of up to 24mb/s (not fiber) and no limits at all. I have downloaded hundreds of gigs of data in a week with them, with no throttling or fair usage complaints.And have received top class customer service from them, however you need a BT line to get Bethere and their availability in some areas can be patchy.

I can see your point here, but add the line rental on that and it's nearer £30. With all Plusnet deals, they do give you unlimited usage between 12am-8am which doesn't eat into your allowance, be it 10gb or 60gb. I don't know which provider to go with as I'd like a change, but Plusnet customer service hasn't failed me yet....

I'm with o2 quite long on old tariff plus extra staff discount from 02 friend. i pay 7.50 ( or something after vat change) plus 12.5 o2 line with unlimited landlines calls. total about 20 quid
which is great
but
I'm considering BT infinity option 2. I'm just confused by the price:
is 25.60 as total price or 25.60 plus BT line (about 13.50 I guess) which come to nearly 40 quid
if its double the price i will stay with o2 but if 25.60 is total price i will be new BT customer...
and unlimited wi-fi on bt openzone etc...

Being honest doesn't detract from the fact they CAP and THROTTLE your connection, getting free traffic in the middle of the night in no way makes up for this as not everyone can schedule downloads.

I've been with plusnet for 5-6 years and they used to be great, since BT took them over things have went downhill rapidly and only seem to be getting worse.

I wouldn't recommend this 'deal' to an enemy..

Plusnet's network is a JOKE. They throttle the speeds to a trickle, far more so in my experience than their website claims. Want to watch iPlayer (even in SD)? - good luck! They claim they don't throttle iPlayer, so I can only assume their network is extremely congested.

I consistently got faster speeds tethering my phone.

worst isp i have ever had steer clear

On the unlimited package there is no data limits, speed throttling or fair usage policy at all. To have letters from sky you must have been on a limited package (2gb limit for free or 40gb for £5pm) and going over that limit.

I download hundreds of gigs worth of data weekly, sometimes daily by newsgroups and the speed of the connection has always been at the max the line can take (or to the limit I set) and have never had any letter, email or otherwise from sky relating to usage. I have also been a sky broadband customer for over 2 years and never has the connection been 'offline' as far as I am aware.

Taken from skys website :
Please note that this Fair Usage Network Management Policy does not apply to Sky Broadband Everyday Lite or Sky Broadband Unlimited.

I've just renewd with O2, as soon to be moving and am being moved onto their new top package (I'm currently on fully unlimited) of 250GB a month for free for 12 months and only have to pay £7.50 a month for their line rental, now thats what I call a good deal!however, it was a retention deal and I had to do a bit of talking so not everyone will be able to get it.......

I do know it does have traffic management, but only of P2P use through certain times....

most of my web use these days is quite light and if I do use any P2P then I'm quite happy to let it run through the night when it will not be throttled in any way.........

I did want to keep the unlimited package, however told I couldn't due to the move to their phone line, and quite happy to lose it for how much I will save over the next 12 months (approx £192!!!)

Oh God -steer clear of these guys if you want good support.

For the past 2 years we were with Madasafish, and everything was spot on. They changed over to plusnet and in the past week theyve been rude, refused payments, hung up umpteen times and generally dont care.

We've cancelled it now and gone over to Zen who are at a pretty good price and got a good rep.

Good luck to anyone who goes with Plusnet -youll need the patience of saint.

Sorry voting cold :(
