Hi all

Plusnet have released new offers today which to me are the best I have seen for quite some time. You have to have line rental as well at £15.95 per month, or Line Rental Saver at £155.88 paid in advance for the year, (which works out to be £12.99 a month).

Broadband: £2.50 per month for 12 months
Fibre (upto 38Mb): £7.50 for 9 months (then £14.99 for 9 months)
Fibre (upto 76Mb): £12.50 for 9 months (then £19.99 for 9 months)
All three come with unlimited usage!

I am already with Plusnet and even though my Fibre contract was not due to end till October 2014, I called them up and they have put me on the £7.50 offer. Yes it means I have another 18 months with them, but personally I have had no issues (in the last 5 years) and have even referred family and friends to them who have also had good experiences.

There are no end dates listed and when I spoke to them, they said it may be on till September however there are no guarantees.

There is also cashback available from the usual sources and hopefully this offer helps people out.

£2.50 per month for 12 months, not £2.50 for 12 months (as in title)

Good price and always get fibre if you can....
#2
Good deal and might be just what I'm after being mid-argument with Sky about my bill!

Be aware though, if you pay the line rental up for the year in advance, I don't believe you get the free weekend calls included in the package!

I agree. I could only get 1.5mb where I live and Fibre has been fantastic. It's just a shame I can't get the higher end speed of Fibre and have to stick to 35mb lol.

^ yep, you do :)
#5
How much to connect my city flat to a phone line? Fibre looks expensive.

go with the ee deal thru topcashback get £132. works out at £2.50 a month for 12 mths.
#10
also if you have ee mobile contracts you get 10gb 4g data on the phone.
#11
What's traffic shaping like on plusnet?
#12
I'm about to ditch EE for shoddy service and being told they wouldnt throttle my speed at peak times when in fact they do ( Im referring to file sharing applications between 4 and midnight not a hope to download anything) ... does anyone know if plusnet do this ? Cheers :)
#13
Also it's worth if you can afford to paying the line rental saver option. I paid 12 months in advance and saved £50+. I know this day and age it's not always easy to do that but it's a guaranteed saving if you can.

EDIT: Did not read your description fully and scanned pass the bit you mention the above. It's always worth considering :)

Thanks Sanj82.

I was also still within contraxct with them (still 4 months to run) but following your post rang plus net and they also changed me onto a cheaper contract right away which is decent of them especially as I am happy with the overall service anyway

They offered me a package of £10 (38mb fiber) for the full 18 months so worked out even better than their advertised deal
#15
Last week, when I signed up Fibre (up to 76Mb) was £9.99 for 6 months (then £19.99). My Topcashback initially tracked at £36.75 but was declined.
#16
You can also pay £5 for anytime call package to 01 02 03 numbers. re-dial after an hr.
#17
Plusnet used to traffic shape, but these days they don't seem to (I'm on ADSL2+ unlimited) as fibre hasn't reached us just yet. I've been happy with them.

On the unlimited packages, Plusnet use traffic prioritisation - you'll always get the maximum speeds but if there are various devices in your property using the internet, it will give you the best speeds to those which needs it the most (i.e. video streaming)

I can confirm that what 'bbdom' has said is true. I've never been 'throttled' like other ISP's do and even when I got a bit nerdy and decided to download the complete box sets of 24 (via Sky On Demand), I used in excess of 200gb over the course of a few days and continued to get top speeds. On a side note, I didn't get any warnings or emails from Plusnet either and frequently download many movies and tv programmes from places like Sky and BBC iPlayer.
I do use File Sharing sites too and never experienced a problem on these either at any time of the day.

Not available at Market 1 exchanges, oh and they charge extra for caller display etc. which is included on my current package with another ISP.

So NO THANKYOU.

But if you're an onine gamer you might have problems. I play SW TOR and the ping can go from 12ms (V good) to over 80,000 ms (unplayable).

Yes they can sleepywhispers. I am a current customer and called up and got the deal. Simply tell them you have seen the offer on their website and would like it. There was no 'only for new customers' statements, they simply processed it on the system and said the new pricing will take place from my next billing date.
#24
You need to phone their retentions team and try and haggle a deal. Some leaving customers seem to get a really good deal, others not so good.

Worth a try anyway as it is a freephone number :)
#25
I'm a current customer just about to hit the 12 months mark so worth a go for me.
Thanks OP

Personally I think virgin offer a far better deal. I just got 100MB fibre only, NO LINE RENTAL. £26.50 for the first three months and then £31.50 for the other 9 months. Free £50 installation and also got £80.80 tracked on TCB (fingers crossed that works).

If you can get plusnet fibre its most likely you can get virgin fibre!

(obviously this is in regards to fibre only)

Sorry, your home isn't in a Virgin Media area

We've checked your postcode and unfortunately we can't bring you any Virgin Broadband, TV or home phone services.

I appreciate that post as it's a deal breaker for me if i pick another ISP that does what EE have done.

Virgin and Plusnet work off different connectivity so unfortunately it's not always possible to get Virgin. Where I lived before, which was only 0.4 miles away from my current home; I could only get Plusnet fibre, not Virgin.

Hopefully this offer will be of use to those who are interested in Plusnet's fibre. Yes Virgin can give better download speeds but Plusnet excel with upload; around 10Mb for me last time I checked.

It is a basic router (Technicolor 582n) but I have had no issues with it and get no drop outs anywhere in my house. I get a connection in my garden too!

Yeah I'd say if you're looking for fibre optic go for virgin, every other fibre provider is using BT's cable, which isn't fibre all the way into your house. And that's the exact same deal me and my flat mates got through a field sales rep, but it was 26.50 for the entire 12 months, with £50 bill credit which was basically the first 2 months free. I'm sure it's still available, pm for info

to be fair it's the same with Virgin.

Virgin are a real pain at the weekends. The Internet is unusable most Sundays when I complain all they do is change settings and when I tell them it's their fault for throttling me they deny it. Time to move on but where? They are all the same are they not?
