Why have you put £5 per month when you must take the 16.99 line rental.

Did teacher never tell you to show your equations / working out...?

£5 a month is only for the first 6 months or am I missing something?

link must have changed. if you go through TCB or broadband choices it will take you to the proper link where it's £5 a month over 18 months

Same price as Vodafone BROADBAND 38mbps which is a flat £22 a month. Not sure if Cashback is available? :p

Take a screenshot as that's what it says.
As the line rental increase starts in a few days, I'd work your calculation out using £17.99 p/m as no-one will be able to get the £16.99 line rental.
I've just actually left Plusnet and I know others think they are the 'bees knees', I found them extremely 'uncomfortable' with my changeover. Took ages to actually contact them over misleading emails, several misleading emails!
I'm glad to see the back of them!

I agree.
They also put up the line rental mid-contract and allow you to leave without penalty (although you may have to 'guide' them) and lose customers. Then offer cheap deals to attract new customers to replace the exiting ones, but at a lower cost.
It must make sense somewhere? (scratches head)

I currently have Virgin optical fibre. To get something similar from Plusnet etc do I need a new connection installed? I am guessing as this is fiber it is underground vs over your phone line. It's difficult to find this information.

You need a phone line, as it comes through the phone socket into the house.

Thanks for the reply. Thought as much. I have an old phone line connection below my VM phone line. Issue is even if it is connected it isn't in the best position for my router to be in and having a fully wired Ethernet connection will be impossible unless they reroute the line to my living room which will probably cost a lot of money. Looks like I am sticking with Virgin then.

My Sky Broadband is finishing on October 5th. I was on 12 month Free Broadband and half price line rental of £8.70 a month

I called them today and they offered to me for £27.40. I'll break it down for you it's £10.00 broadband and £17.40 line rental total is £27.40 a month during 12 months contract

I said I want to cancel and they came back with £10.00 a month for free broadband and line rental during 12 months contract if I decide to stay on.

What shall I do stay with them or cancel and get better elsewhere.

My broadband and tv offer ends with Sky on October 1st - I'm still shopping around and thinking about going with Plusnet. Chances of beating sky down to about half of what I'm currently paying? (Cos getting top level of fibre with Plusnet with almost all their TV packs is still £25 cheaper than sky's last offer)

No you don't!!! Vodafone do broadband without a line and so do EE

It's not £5 per month at all. It's £5+£16.99 so £21.99 soon to go up to £22.99. Rubbish deal considering you can get tv phone and faster broadband for cheaper!

Brilliant. My contract with plusnet is over in two months or less an they wouldn't give me 5 quid for 18 months but they did do it for £7

Good price for the download but only 2Mbps upload which isn't enough for many. Not voted either way.

Shat it Ben with your too bit raspberry pi deals. Keep your 2 cent to yourself

keep in mind that if you decide to cancel your contact they won't refund the line rental and they count 14 days cancellation period from the day you place an order and usually enable the connection after 14days and if you need help their waiting time is 40 mins to 1 hour plus.

I just saw this on MSE. Is it a better deal?
~I'm just after a new line rental and BB package. Can anyone advise? I'm a moderate user, i.e. TV streaming, downloads and gaming. Probably don't need fibre, although I don't need a landline - as I use my mobile.

Until Wed 31 Aug, new Plusnet customers, or those who've not been with it in the last month can get an 12-mth contract with BT-owned Plusnet* which includes line rental, unlimited downloads with up-to-17Mb speed broadband.
Broadband and line rent £186 over 12mths, get £75 back*If line rent paid upfront. (Paid monthly it's £323)

Available to: 90% of the UK
Speed: Up to 17Mb
Download limit: Unlimited
Traffic shaping? Yes

Contract length: 12 months
Deal requires line rental? Yes
Inclusive calls? No
New line installation: £49.99 << maybe a deal breaker hidden here?

I was ready to do this deal but the cashback has dropped to £10.60 on TCB. That's effectively £5.50 a month gone. Any better deals for unlimited 38mb fibre?
#31
kind of ruins the deal without the cash back. I was tempted with the non-fibre deal. the cash back on both was about the same so thought for the extra £5 a month I'd rather have fibre.
#32
I know this has already been said but it's not £5 a month if you have to pay for line rental is it?
#33
If you search for Plusnet on Quidco, this deal is listed under the vouchers and offers section with £85 cashback

Apparently BT Homehubs work with Plusnet, if anyone leaving BT wants to save getting yet another router sent out to them ...

But it takes you to ADSL broadband (17Mbps) landing page instead of fiber page, looks like either £5 per month OR £85 cashback...can't see a way to get both

Brilliant spot, thanks a lot.

Just done this. £22.99 a month for 38mb unlimited fibre (inc line rental) + £84 cash back.
£22.99 x 18 = £413.82 - £84 / 18 = £18.32 a month - that will do me.

Still have 9 months line rental saver :(
Anyone know of a provider that offers competitive broadband that isn't bundled with line rental?
Such a fcuking anticompetitive con, I can't believe ofcom hasn't taken action against it. Utterly useless regulator.

I agree it sucks I've been switching between Plus and BT nothing to change. Fibre (FTTC) they seem to think we are idiots and won't move. Just get the best deal when you credit runs low and you see a good deal. I got the amazing deal 13 months ago (Plusnet early termination without fee = 12 months into an 18m contract) to a BT 12 month contract >£400 CB each time! CB looks thin on the ground now.. Other folk may be able to get out due to poor service (Virgin / SSE BB is really bad so you can bail)

One thing to remember is not to buy the associated deals (Mobile SIMs from BT or Vrigin) as it makes it more complex to leave. Best to stick with separate providers to allow you to switch. I'm leaving BT and will be the Free Wifi which is superb at work and when out and about for mobile data. Shame!

There might be better cashback on quidco for Plusnet, not sure which deal though might only be the 76 meg product

18 month contracts on BB should be a thing of the past now. Even BT (owner of this outfit BTW) now offer 12 month contracts...
