Clikc 'get deal' and it's at the bottom of the page, about the 8th option offered.

Worth noting their 38mbps deal only has a 2mbps upload speed compared to the typical 18mbps you get with many providers. On the 76mbps deal you get the 18mbps upload speed.

Obviously all speeds are 'up to' and you won't likely get 76mbps unless you live inside the telephone exchange or the street cabinet :D although I get about 74mbps on my Plusnet fibre and I'm about 120metres from the cabinet.

Did a test with Vodaphone website and they said the best i could get with them was no more than 55mb

Leaving talk talk where I get 12 mb so the package at £23 suits me better than staying with talk talk
#10
I signed up as an existing customer in Nov to upgrade to the 40 Mbs, ( getting 36 - 37 Mbs) line rental + unlimited anytime calls for £33pm on a 2 year deal , I wonder if this deal would be better and I should try for an upgrade ?
#11
Does traffic shaping slow down your line?
#12
Don't bother I signed up on 27 December and they can't activate it until 31st Jan, a whole 5 weeks later if they actually do. AND they've taken payment!

I'm leaving Plusnet this month only because my 18 month contract is up and I'm paying £38/month and they'll only offer me £33/month for 24 months and don't want that length. The service overall has be good, quick to sort a fault, although I'm only getting 66mb speed of 78mb package but no problems at all download, streaming, gaming etc so I'd recommend them and would stay if they matched this deal.

Good deal! I pay £27.99 in total. I got them to pricematch an 18 month SSE deal. My deal ends in July this year though.

My line stats, I don't live in the exchange :)

Data Rate: 19999 / 76110
Maximum Data Rate: 27955 / 76738
Noise Margin: 15.2 / 6.4
Line Attenuation: 14.1 / 13.4
#15
Have only just joined them...with line rental payment upfront for 12 months you can save an extra few quid. Speeds so far are good. Been testing all day and depending on what equipment I'm using the speed ranges from 40mb to 75mb. Hope it remains that way.
#16
When I searched they use the same routers as BT is this correct?

I currently get real close to the full 80000, or 78mb I assume, and was initially told max I could get was 45mb to 60mb...I think they just pull the initial number out of their backsides if no one else has fibre close to you.

Does traffic shaping slow down your line?

Yes. Can be a rather general peak times that can be anything from 6am to midnight as they see fit.

Depending on their policy and how over sold they are on your exchange, aka congestion, you can get shaped down to 1mb down and 256kB up but it is usually something closer to 1/4 your normal speed.

Dont know the plusnet policy if they shape and how bad it is.
#20
Plusnet do prioritise/traffic shape, but I've never noticed if they do to be fair. Origin (who resell Plusnet broadband) offer "truly unlimited" broadband with no traffic shaping, as do Sky and BT.

OK my line stats:
Current Rate (Kbps) 19999 / 79997
Max Rate (Kbps) 32150 / 95602
SNR Margin (dB) 15.2 / 10.3
Line Attenuation (dB) 12.5 / 10.5

but the actual speed tests 'only' give me about 73 to 74mbps - ok that's pretty good and many will be happy with a fraction of that but sync speeds are not quite the same as actual results :D

Why is this cold? Surely a good deal or is it just because it's Plusnet?

might be because it's an 18month contract or because it's Plusnet which seems to have taken a bit of a hit in customer service of late although I've used them for 7 years and had no problems to speak of and a very reliable service.
#24
I'm on 18 month deal 38-40 mb unlimited calls 26.50
#25
I'm with PN - happy with it. My only gripe is the contract was originally 38/18, then they cut upload to 10. As concession they increased download to 52. Also could have terminated without penalty. Would have preferred 38/18 to 52/10, but get full rate (or fraction higher) and getting that for low cost - matching some TalkTalk offer. Line rental was also a bit lower than others.

Now looking at Hyperoptic FTTH which is available here from today - 100/100 for £28 inc phone on 12 month contract. 1000/1000 also available for £48 - yes 1Gb down and up. :)

How are you finding out these line stats?

Log into your router and look at them.

edit: I moved to TalkTalk and this is the stat I like best:
DSL up-time: 355 days 18 hours 15 minutes 58 seconds
The only real downtime in a the eighteen months with them for me was when they upgraded the router recently which for some reason took a couple of hours.

edit2: I get close to 80000 aka 78mb with TT but on the plusnet site they offer 55-71mb which is a pretty massive margin of error and a possible 7mb loss of speed. Would save £1.70 per month so not worth the risk of losing 23mb of speed. :P

They are owned by BT that's why the customer service and traffic shaping is crap

Origin (who is owned by plusnet)

Do they? May want to check that again :-)

Depends which router you have. I have the BT Homehub 5. Not all routers allow access to the full stats, just the line speed. Google your router.

So, My PlusNet broadband is up soon and I want to give fibre a try, Don't know the first thing about it, Don't want to touch BT and want to leave PN, So who do I go with, Or at best who do I start with.

That's an impressive uptime! - I usually reboot the router every few months as once in a blue moon it gets stuck or confused or I just like to live dangerously :D

I gave up recommending any ISP long ago because all ISP's are utterly useless or perfect depending on your own circumstances. I've used Plusnet and am more than happy, others grumble about poor service and speeds. I suspect many of the problems are people's phone lines, sockets and PCs / ipads etc and not the ISP but that doesn't stop millions complaining. If you want to leave Plusnet then you'll have to do some tedious research which will result in you finding every ISP is terrible (if you believe all the reviews)

I will soon be out of contract with virgin 50meg broadband and looking fot another provider & plusnet 76meg caught my eye. Though I have heard of plusnet before, I have not hadone any dealings with the company to know how good or bad the company is. Hope you guys can please answer my question:

1. What is plusnet like as a company to deal with?
2. Is the broadband reliable?
3. I am interested in the 76meg but will I get close to the quoted 76meg?
4. Would any of you guys rate plusnet over virgin for broadband?

1. I've been with them since 2013 and have only had to contact them a couple of times since then.
2. Very! Can't remember any downtime at all since joined.
3. Hard to answer. You'd need line stats from a BT line to answer that question.
4. I've never had Virgin, so can't comment.

I don't tend to test the speed that often anymore to be honest, I've no need. All that matters to me is three of us can be using the internet, streaming or whatever, and there's no buffering or slow downs at all.

Here's a test from my android phone.
