This sounds like the kind of issue and scenario where you could score a bit of a slam dunk if handled right.....................
......or if the default settings in the SMS were to blame, take some responsibility, suck it up, take it on the chin, admit that was the case and move on!

I think we're discussing a tariff thing, not sure about default settings..'in the SMS'.

I have never heard one person complain about Plusnet.oO

Try Ofcom.

I've also been with PN for around 13 years, and currently they are not a company I can recommend for anything!
Weird! My experience has been the total opposite (an NO, I don't work for them).

Never had any long lasting problems myself and I've been with Plusnet well over 10 years.

There's been the occasional downtime, but not for long.

Whenever I've heard people complaining about their IPS ITRW, it has always been Sky, TalkTalk and BT that have been getting slated.

I have never heard one person complain about Plusnet.oO

I'm voting hot - but reluctantly tbh.
I was a LIFE customer that got taken over by Plusnet.
I got the 'everything's fine, just carry on as normal, don't worry about a thing' texts and emails about the takeover, so I did just that.
My last three bills from Plusnet have been way over what I normally paid to LIFE. The reason? Texts.
I used emojis and long texts with LIFE and never got charged a penny more than my normal bill. As soon as Plusnet took over, I got charged extortionate rates for emojis, any text over 140 characters and more than three texts in a row to the same number.
Naturally, I queried this rise in my bills with Plusnet. All the above was explained to me by their CS as... MMS's. According to Plusnet CS, emojis, any text over 140 characters and more than three texts in a row to the same number are automatically converted to an MMS which carries a premium rate charge.
Don't get me wrong, this is fair enough imo - providing you know about it in advance. I didn't.
And I stopped sending emojis immediately, but still got a high bill - which was down to texts over 140 characters, then was told it was due to three texts in a row to same number.
So, I'd actually - possibly - go for this deal, but atm I'm a bit miffed at Plusnet.

This sounds like the kind of issue and scenario where you could score a bit of a slam dunk if handled right.

I'm a bit busy and haven't read the rest of the thread, therefore excuse that it's rushed, or if perhaps youre familiar with elements of the following approach, or if you have already received advice along these lines;

I would recommend pushing back, and hard. If you're still a customer, research the relevant bodies in advance (Ofcom, Trading Standards etc) who you would in theory report Plusnet to.

You will ask some questions you probably already know the answers to, and you'll be implying that you're about to leave, when in reality this may not be your immediate intention.
Call up, and have a conversation along these lines.
Start your story again with anyone in a new department that you are put through to.

Be pleasant and diplomatic to anyone you talk to. Refer to 'Plusnet' and not 'you' whenever you describe the company or service you have received. Keeps people less defensive, and more on your side.
eg 'Plusnet pledged to deliver a competent service to me as a customer'.
Describe the issue as plainly as you have stated it above.

Explain the reason for your call is that you're preparing a case, and that you will be in touch a few times over the next few days/weeks while you prepare notes for a third party that will be taking over the issue shortly on your behalf.

Next, ask to have the procedure for ceasing your contract with Plusnet described.

Then ask if there is a complaints team you could talk to in order to update them too, and to officially register your dissatisfaction over the charges you have received. Explain that you would like to speak personally with the person best suited to discuss the issue once more before it is escalated, and Plusnet are contacted by a third party representing your case.

Explain that you would like to avoid this, because its already taken up much of your time. That all you want is a credit for the MMS charges PLUS a token of compensation for the time you have spent investigating the issue created by Plusnet.

Companies are jumpy when they first take over another company. They don't want a headline like '10,000 customers outraged at Plusnet price hikes' a few months into their merger, and they throw resources and money at the problem in advance.

just checked my bank, they have today taken ANOTHER £6 via visa, bloody fuming

no sim recieved

bank are investigating
Update... Halifax have refunded me and have put a block on any future attempts at taking money by Candy. I'll be sticking to known providers from now on.
yeah already contacted ofcom and had a similar response as you, BC were very defensive I guess they can't ignore now though. also my bank Halifax are looking into it.

Im another one whos been scammed by candy, thought as it was promoted by broadband choices it was legit. Live chat worked whilst i was signing up and i asked who provided tge network and was told three, other people have been told or read that its vodafone.
Anyway off to the bank tomorrow to see what can be done.
In the mean time ive also emailed broadband choices aswell as ofcom.

Still no sim, early last week (Tuesday) I contacted Ofcom as there was a few breaches of regulations Complaints Code of Conduct & Alternative Dispute Resolution. Ofcom were not even aware the company existed as not on their telco listing and neither Ofcom approved ADR has Candy registered, Ofcom confirmed.

Thus I sent a email with all this to HR @ BC with all the details and asked why BC did not ensure the company were meeting all regulations before advertising them - and they have been pulled from BC.

BC in their email back admit are now reviewing "our provider listing procedures to identify how they might be improved. We will also highlight potential improvements with the provider as to their own website"


Ofcom have contacted Candy about its breaches.

Ofcom are keen to hear from other people about this matter.

Give it a couple of months and they'll bump up the price, like they did on my uswitch plan with life mobile.
Avoid.
/for a company that effuses it's ethical credentials, I considered that unethical and binned two accounts and switched to talk mobile who seem to (so far) stick to their offers.
they better not do as us two are off! Off off and away I tell thee. So far they've been spot on I hate the whole "waiting days for us to activate the sim though" I think it should be activated apon dispatch but I understand why, especially in regards to security measures. But because of it takes a lot longer than most networks to port your number into LIFE

Depends where you live though doesn't it.
EE will barely get 3g where I live but talkmobile/Vodafone is 4g.

How do you get 4G on Talkmobile?

https://talkmobile.co.uk/help/signal-help

"Unfortunately we’re not yet able to offer 4G coverage, but we’re working on it and hope to make this available to our customers soon."


Sorry, my wife has Vodafone is 4g and I get talkmobile 3g. EE is so bad here that I barely get enough signal to make a call sometimes.
However, 30 miles away at my parents and the EE 4g speed is as fast as my 50mb BT fibre so I understand it is good in many places.

yes cashback may not be paid but it's a good gamble. I'm currently on a sky deal where TCB and sky cashback/M&S voucher did arrive :) This deal would still be less than £10 per month if the cashback didn't come through.
Exactly that's why I signed up for the original deal. At worst I should get £75 and best £210. If I only get £75 it's less than £10 if I only get the £135 it's less than £5 and if I get both (unlikely) they pay me! :)
Where do you get £135 and £210 from? £75 + £35.35 = £110.35. Are you talking about a previous deal?

Yes the original deal. £135 quidco and £75 from Plusnet themselves. The suggestion is they won't let you have both. So I have made a quidco claim for the £135 and if they pay me that then if I can't claim the £75 then so be it. If quidco say no then I have 60 days to claim my plusnet cashback.

As for service it is slower than sky I had before, but it's been consistent so no complaints from me.

Worst case it works out at £9.75 a month and I simply can't find cheaper.

don't get 18mth contracts, 12mth max, paying £24.99 for 100mb and line, contract ending soon so will give notice and get another deal (via retentions) no doubt other members on better deals
I cancelles my virgin media package will i recieve a call from retentions?
yes you should, if your paying more than you think, (i.e new customers getting better deals) even though you have been with them years, I would cancel.
RETENTIONs normally ring you up a few times just haggle with them,
worse case scenario is you get cancelled, then just join as a new customer.
my last contract ended over xmas and they rang me on boxing day, so staff always available, will do the same again in December...
They had me on £21 including line rental but then put it upto £30
What package you on?,
are you in a contract or just rolling month by month?
Just rolling i already gave 30 days notice now and its 70mb with weekend calls
not sure if I mentioned above, I am on 100mb and weekends for £24.99 until Dec , lmk how you go on..(no doubt others on better packages and just as cheap)............

Play sky at there own game, phone up to make deal....request cancellation of whole package, receive 30-50% off email within 10-14 days and retention team phone call stopping you from leaving. Within minutes I gained 33% off my TV package, reduction in fibre broadband, £3 off telephone and £50 credit.

Further to the above sky over charged my fibre package so asked for telephone transcript to proof I was politically correct and got another £20 credit.

Just keep saying no thanks BT or Virgin offer better packaging, don't get angry and play nicely...
I just bought this package. I'm getting £100 m&s voucher, not £75.

Zara_x what deal were you on previously to then get your deal? So you pay for phone line rental and get broadband free?? Do you pay for any other service with VM?

For the last 12 months I paid line rental saver and then £2.50 for the broadband but it's increased now.

Title is misleading as it states free for a year plus £50 credit however it should state £4pm plus £50 credit.

Great news and thanks for the update!

I'm sorry that's happened. Sounds like they're hoping no one will notice.

At the very least it sounds like a loss of bargain, especially if you're out of pocket and they've requested your number from plusnet (they had requested from my current phone provider). Since you're already in deep I think best bet is to fight it (although that's easy for me to say: for those interested I had already cancelled my "12m" Virgin contract after having it beat by my current ISP). It does sound watertight esp since they've initiated proceedings etc.

Good luck.

you need to be more firm & threatening with them.
you took out the deal & signed the contract. your legal binding email is confirming that.
If they want to break the contract by not honouring it, then they are in breach of contract.
What would happen if you was in breach or you would want to terminate early? YOU would pay to get out of it.

can i cancel my bt line and move to primus? i have bt infinity broadband and signed the contract with them 4 months ago.

I think you need to keep the BT Line rental

Opt for the PAY 12 months in advance with BT the price for line rental comes down.

The deal is for a (Primus) landline not (Plusnet) broadband.
Anyway the price rise with Plusnet in Oct doesn't affect new customers,
so leave it alone unless its relevant.

Plusnet price changes

The following prices will rise for customers who joined before 8 May. Customers who joined after 8 May are on a new product range and not affected.

ive voted hot for your mate , this deal should be well over 500 degree's , come on guys line rental for £5.99 that's over £9 cheaper every month compared to bt, only thing I would want to know if price after 12 months.
initial line rental is hot, but they increase their rental after the first year considerably, whilst advertising low rates for first timers.
OP made the mistake of bundling his deal with broadband from Plusnet and therefore a package price of £14.48. You can better deals elsewhere. Even the Primus bundle is cheaper than the OP's without even considering the cashbacks, and you get free evening calls and unlimited broadband 24 hours a daŷ. (I worked my comparison on paying the line rental in advance thus £10pm, broadband £2 for 6 months followed by £4 pm

The line rental is only for 12 mths, you can quite simple move to another company at the end of the contract if you're not going to be happy with the new price, with Plusnet broadband there seems to be no price increase no matter how long you stay with them.
Plenty of great deals never get sufficient recognition via the random 'heat' applied on HUKD... Sometimes one gets lucky, sometimes not so lucky...
Heat rating tells you how good the deal is..

Plusnet is BT!!!!!!!!!!!!'

Oh, for pity's sake. They are part of BT Group but tell me what aspect(s) of the company or service are like BT Broadband ?

Separate management, call centre in Sheffield (and a new one to come in Leeds), own networking and customer services (all UK based)... rent lines from BT Wholesale (like lots of other ISPs)... all true about Plus.Net, but you can have a static IP for a once-only 5 pounds fee (if you need a static IP), and for me, and probably hundreds or thousands of others who have recommended them, they pay commission for those recommendations that lead to new customers... So over the years I've saved coming up to 500 pounds and for a short time when I had no landline and therefore no active PN broadband connection, they paid a fiver into my bank account each month. I'm planning to ramp it up to the point where I get 1000 a month into my account via a number of websites... I'm always happy to recommend Plus.Net.
