PlusNet terrible. Crap customer service, idiotic rude CTO (thinks its ok to insult/send rude twitter messages), kept blaming openreach for issues that were down to their administration. Cold.

I really can't believe I am reading of this offer, less than 24 hours after they denied my attempt to renew my contract. I have been with them for 4 years. My contract runs out this month and despite 2 telephone calls to them, they refused point blank to let me have the promoted £18 per month BB and landline deal yesterday as 'its for new customers only' Are they nuts? I have just pressed the button to join Talk Talk ( I know there are some horror stories about them too), but this is unbelievable.
I've been with plusnet since 2008 and to be honest it hasn't been plain sailing. It's seems worse in the last few years and I agree with the support is pretty poor now. What's worse that really annoys me is when I went onto fibre broadband I got 36mb download, then it dropped to about 18mb I then complained and it went up to 36mb again. The last few weeks it's down to about 20mb so looks like another phone call. Although they say they don't throttle back I don't believe them as why does it improve when I have a moan? Probably move when contract up. Cold
been with plusnet for about 4 years. excellent service and 70mbps download speeds.credit where credit is due.

Will existing life customers get 4g? I've not seen any indication either way.
Yes you can.
But if you're on some exclusive low cost plan I think they make you pay extra.

Glad I made the switch to this deal about a week ago. Transition was smooth, coverage is more comprehensive than Life (less dead zones and better reception at home), better speeds (capped at around 25/5.....
How does that work then? The only thing that has changed is who you pay your bills to. Network is still EE, no?

Contacted Plusnet using live chat and yes I'm a Plusnet broadband customer! :p
More info on that here: https://www.plus.net/help/mobile/mates-rates-guide/

I'm guessing it's to do with the difference in 3g/4g bandwidth. There is a definite improvement in coverage.

I got an error on the page where you input card details. I think they're really strict that everything you type matches with the card issuer.

Austria is 2p per min with giffgaff.
Or use FooCall app (I'm on iOS) for 2.7p/min to mobiles and 0.9p to landlines.

Just found the new t&c's here looks like I spoke to soon
I'm fairly certain annual increases only apply to contracts and not rolling 30 day sims.
Life Mobile have never increased my sim price while I've been with them.
Well they ain't life mobile are they, so just wait until they increase your price.

It's a shame such crap of a company plusnet taking over a good customer focused company....those on pre 29th contract you might as well start phoning up now you probably get through by January 2017.

Additional charges - these are the charges for services that aren't included in your plan

​the voicemail is included, unless you have run out of 2k minutes, just read the website properly and don't confuse the others!
Thank you for your advice, if the website had been easier to read I would have been ok, I'm only 14 and I think youre being unfair.

I have been trying to upgrade to the 2GB plan all day it's taken four phone calls and many non-existent callbacks just to be told that existing LIFE customers are not eligible for the offer because we have to be sent a new SIM card which they can't do without voiding the old tariff.
It also seems like the team don't know what's going on today! Since they are completely unaware of the offers on the website and advising me on things which directly contradict the information in the terms and conditions at the bottom of their website.
As a final note according to the support team on the phone, the double data offers are for today only, and their site is wrong.

Same experience today, offered a callback as the said system was down, no callback, will try again tomorrow.
Then you shouldn't be signing up for these packages. Stuck with the payg

£44 quidco on the 76mb
Might want to mention that there is an upfront payment, just took a look at this as I am up for renewal on my BB and at the checkout the great 80MB deal ends up being:
£56.98 for P+P and Activation/installation
£10.01 Broadband charge up front
£17.99 Line rental up front

Total Payment today £84.98

Monthly payment works out £3 or so a month more when you take into account the today costs (minus upfront rentals) Still not bad



Edited By: ianeb on Nov 25, 2016 00:44
These deals are not usually available for existing customers.
Weird, I am already a Plusnet customer and when I try to change package I only get the option of getting the 76Mb Fibre for £20 + £18 line rental

Does your deal not include any kind of phone package?
Think the 38mb is £14.99 plus £17.99 line rental.

Few years ago my experience with their customer service was that it was filled will young, rude, immature, alpha-male wannabe boys. Sounds like they've gotten even worse.
I was with Plusnet, left to go to O2. Fantastic service till Sky got control of broadband. Went back to Plusnet and happy with speeds and service (fibre). Got a very nice retention deal in spring this year too.
PLUSNET SHOULD CHANGE TO PLUSCRAP

Worst ever isp company ever had to deal with and now i find that they have taken over life mobile

life mobile would answer calls within 30 secs - crapnet never answer calls within 30 mins !!!!!!!!!
BT a once GREAT institution.

Pile of poo now
Since BT acquired EE Broadband, they already own Plusnet there has been a reduction in service levels for all three. Offcom were quite happy for BT to become an even larger monopoly, so much for completion when the watchdog is even got at.

plusnet home hub 1 does not work with chromecast audio.
keeps rebooting. no matter what settings. got second home hub one from plusnet, same problems.
im on £22.99 deal for 18 months. £5 broadband with £17.99 line rental.
workaround:
had to use old netgear router. set home home one up as switch with power plug connection from upstairs to downstairs. have netgear 2.4 ghz upstairs with seperate fibre modem at master socket and 5ghz with home hub 1 downstairs.

What about this?

I believe the Plusnet Hub 1 is the same as the BT Homehub 4 or 5 (just a different colour), so this link might be relevant.

Have this for now about 4 months. Yes, it was a pain in the ass to even have it installed. It is an all night story if anyone interested. After a week I had terrible connection and drop outs. Requested a new modem, got it in 3 days. Because of the hassle got another 2 months half price service. (6 months included in the contract) Since then, I have no other complaints. Usually, have 9ms ping and about 55Mbps instead of 40.

Unfortunately no Quidco atm just for business deals, My 70 already been paid out. Cheers

My bad, this must be one of the things they have just changed, as it WAS monthly, and still says monthly in some of the Q&A.

And you are still not looking at the small print, the Aquiss price includes things you have to pay extra for - or cannot get from PN - static IP, iPv6, email, unrestricted download speed 24/7, decent pings, and tech support that answer the phone/email quickly.

YES, I got the comparison wrong, because they didnt make it clear that line rental was included in the badly worded offer price, will I be switching to save all that money? NOT ON YOUR LIFE.

Plus, PN can raise prices whenever they want, as long at they stay below the government set threshold that allows you to break the contract, they can and WILL raise them by a hair under the limit - at least once per year.
As a BT subsidary, I expect them to start doing a "10 month" yearly price increase any time soon, just like BT have been doing for the past few years.
Like the new rules on line rental being included in the price, the fixed for the length of the contract rules dont start for a few more days, so any new sign-ups wont be covered.

Here are a few quotes from the small print you havent bothered reading

Prices and terms may vary at any time during the contract. We'll tell you about important changes in advance.
Unlimited Fibre Broadband when taken with Plusnet line rental

With an 18 month contract: If you live in a low cost area it costs £5.00 a month for the first 6 months, £14.99 a month thereafter. If you live outside one of these areas it costs £12.50 a month for the first 6 months, £22.49 a month thereafter.
So which is right, the headline or the small print??



​any price increase for phone or broadband within contractual periods require notice in writing and 30 days to leave free of charge -ofcom requirement from around a year ago... so ensure you keep your email address up to date-. while I would not personally recommend plusnet..static IP is a one off charge of £5 general email is free "for life" and for streamers/gamers/general browsers the smart prioritisation means a more stable connection at peak times

Blimey - i can't see how anyone can possibly compare Aquiss prices with Plusnet

Plusnet's current deal is £5 for the 38mb fibre broadband and £17.99 for the line rental - for the full 18 months of the contract. After that you are out of contract so can leave without penalty to go to th best deal at that time.
Aquiss is a minimum £33 per month for 38mb fibre ( and its a 12 month contract not monthly as you stated ) then £13 line rental on top

So monthly costs of £22.99 for plusnet compared to £46 for Aquiss.

A saving over over £400 over 18 months !

Plusnet started charging me £10/mth for internet after my 12mth deal ran out. Told them to match Sky free internet but I'd be happy without the cash Sky were also offering.

Which provider would you recommend - I'm fed up with far lower than advertised speeds, and repeated drops in service.
MAC? You've been living under a rock.
You no longer need a migration code: Just order with your new provider and they take over the line & broadband (providing they're on the same exchange - All bar Virgin pretty much)

Anyone looking for a. Cheap deal could try Vodafone fiber 78mb for £28pm, I switched from talk talk and I had a bumpy start as order was cancelled then took a week or 2 to put order bk through but once sorted everything was fine apart from trying to bill me the £49 connection fee but got cancelled upon calling them and they didn't charge me £6.99 router delivery, speeds are really good just a tad slower than talk talk router is gr8 apart from the Vodafone connect app won't connect to router but hay as long as the internet works it's cheaper than £40pm

How do you get fibre connection fee waived off? is there any code?


What I meant to say was they tried charging me twice as u have to pay £49 when u place the order

The assessment of customer service is all relative.
Yes, Plusnet can take between 10 minutes and 90 minutes for a human being to speak on their customer service number, but when human connection is made (i) they are in this country, (ii) the phone call is free, (iii) they speak English, (iv) they do not talk from a 'tick box' prompt screen, (v) the cs operative is generally clued up. Ok, it's frustrating to be on hold for up to 90 minutes, but just put your phone on 'speaker' mode and pick up when a human being answers.
I can tell you, compared to LieLie (er, Talk Talk), Plusnet customer services is total heaven. Given all of the above, I wholeheartedly recommend Plusnet.

I got two lines, one migrated from Plusnet to Talktalk, the other one from Plusnet to SSE, both of them work great.

From the CS point of view, Talktalk has been improved a lot although it might take 7 days to fixed BT line issue. But I could tell they are willing to do things at least.

For SSE, they do implemented call back system which is a great time saver. It took a bit longer than Talktalk to fix line issue (around 10 days).

Just to point out, if any one is switching from Plusnet to other provider, remember to ask Plusnet to remove the call waiting feature or greeting feature otherwise it might stop you from migration, lol.
CS awful and have to queue everytime you phone. Always never take the blame for anything that goes wrong. Will be leaving them at end of contract as absolutely the worse BB provider i have ever used. Am even thinking of paying to leave them as it is so bad.

didnt offer me anywhere near this great deal,ended going with sse hope its not ****

I looked at the sse deal and after some researching and knowing people who have gone with them I have backed out & stuck with SKY. The sse deal is great on paper but they use similar traffic management as Plusnet at peak times (and yes they still throttle p2p despite saying they dont). On the overclockers forums some have reported higher pings at peak times and throughput is reduced to under 10mb when they get over 60mb.

I think plusnet still have some of the best deals but so far I'm not leaving sky as yet.

With the £40 Quidco cashback (which they now say is £10, not £40), I lost the 'cheap £5 pre month deal', and it automatically reset to £5 for 6x months only, and the £14.99 for 12x months. Granted I should have looked closer at the Plusnet email contract when it arrived, my fault for sure. But the £10 cashback has cost me £120, a real stinker all round.
Just done it 29.98 came off on the first month pay screen then on dd screen it crashed now having to wait 48 he's before refund. Apparently due to cashback sites. If this is the problem as a new customer god only knows whats its like after a month. Cold from me

Same here, I took a screenshot at £84 but it's tracked at £10, I'll take a trip down the support route.
I didn't get a screenshot. Can you post yours here for all to use?

Thanks!
Are you cancelling the plusnet contract or trying to sort out the cashback after the fact?
I've still got 7 days to decide but it's not ideal.
If there was a better deal on offer I'd cancel just to make sure.
I'll stay if I can sort cashback but WILL cancel if it's looking like I can't.
How are you going to sort the cashback? when raising a claim it states you can't until the service is active, by that time the 14 day cancellation period will be over.
I was able to raise a claim.
Are they looking at the claim? when you raise a claim it states:
"If you raise a cashback claim the Quidco support team will hold this for 35 days from the purchase date. The reason for this is that Plusnet will only accept claims after this time has completed"
I've just stuck a claim in anyhow......
Not had a reply yet - but will cancel in the final day if I don't. It's looking unlikely/scam atm.....

I've been paying this for last 2 years for over twice the speed with EE so pretty lame
Dont waste your time and money, Ive went from 10.5 download to 6 since november and upload capped at a measly 388.

I was able to watch 3/4 twitch streams at the same time at night, now its one only or they will just buffer..

And dont even get me started on the so called "award winning support"... :(
I get over 16mb with plusnet through the day no problem. been with them for 3 years now. ...and when renewing, phone up and haggle, usually get an improved deal.
You'll probably be lucky to get 10mbps
16mb here on sky and talktalk, i cant see plusnet being any different

I moved to Plusnet in June when they were offering £50 cashback and there was £110 cashback from Quidco. I got the £50, but the Quidco was declined and my claim failed. Today I got an email from Quidco out of the blue saying that it was their error and they're going to pay the £110 cashback after all, so there's still a chance that you'll get paid if you find yourself in the same situation.
Also had quidco declined, they didn't say why but I have claimed the Plusnet cashback so I guess it could be that. Didn't realise that would make me ineligible at the time.

quidco declined as i claimed cashback from the retailer, shame as i effectively done myself out of 60 quid..

Mine has come back declined saying I have claimed Plusnet cashback. This is not true as I have not claimed it yet.
I'll see if I get a reply next week before I give up and claim the Plusnet £75.

anyone receive the £75 cashback email?
Had mine about a week ago
getting 1.3mb as opposed to 1.7 with sky
Same here (switched from sky), didn't measure speeds but definitely feels slower. How's that even possible, don't they all use the same lines/wires? Should I try to use their previous Sky router (with a bit of reprogramming) instead of the one provided by Plusnet?
In fact mine seems to be faster suspect it maybe be the rubbish router and will get a more unstable line
prefer it that way tbh

£75 cashback cheque received today making the deal worthwhile imo. Thanks op, glad I switched.
no sign of mine yet did wait a week or so before confirming mind

Says £50 only cashback?
​it does directly on plusnet site. Go on Uswitch and search for broadband deals. It will offer the £75.

Via TCB gives you £84 cashback for the 18 month contract, and still free broadband for the full period.
I went through tcb £18 per month then got £121 cash back
Is there any adsl line who provides 2mb uploads , usually all are below 1.3mb.. Bethere broadband used to do 2.5mb upload.
plusnet have been great so far. cs is by far the best of any provider out there. 80mb fibre has been faultless
Bear with me on this - online since 1994, I've used many ISPs.

Plusnet support is WORSE THAN AOL was.

If you're lucky and have no issues, great.

1) Took 12 weeks to get fibre, even though already had a fibre line
2) Missed first and second 'install' appointments
3) Guy showed up with faulty router
4) Literally useless customer service if your issue doesn't fit a script

Bought yesterday, but....
I have £80.80 cashback tracked instead of £111.10 oO
I have got the same but according to TCB support that the cashback transaction may track initially at a lower rate than %100 and will uplift within 14 days of the order.
Thank you. So I will wait 14 days.
My TCB transaction changed today to £121 (%100)

My is £111.10 now (I'm not Plus Member) ;)

I ordered last week when cashback was £80 but contract was 18 months free- but it tracked at £60. Have since cancelled though as I don't want to be tied in that long if the service isn't good.
Wow yesterday was the best time to get it then. Obviously raised the cashback just before the change in price.
