    Would heartily recommend Primus to anyone. Pay around £15 a month for line rental, calls and broadband and it's been faultless for over a year now. Have BT Infinity at home which costs me £51.50 a month for the same as above, and it's a flipping disaster start to finish. Gonna cancel the BT soon and get Primus at home too. Speeds not as good as fibre, but ten times more stable, reliable and much cheaper!

    I'm looking to switch from sky because the price is going up and up every couple of months and my broadband is **** it keeps loosing speed, i dread the thought of having to call them spending 2 hours on phone, taking all the phone sockets apart its a joke
    Can anyone recommend an all in one package ie TV, broadband/fiber and phone
    It would be much appreciated

    I am just moving from Sky to Plusnet.
    Total saving for the first 12 months line rental/anytime phone/unlimited broadband is £110
    That includes £77.70 Top cash back and £5pm broadband discount.

    I did actually think of them, I'm going to check it out later
    What are there customer service like are they English ?
    Thanks for that :)


    Yes, UK based and they are proud of it.
    I rang Sky to see if they would beat the deal, they were grumpy.
    I rang Plusnet to ask a technical question, they answered quickly and were cheerful Yorkshire folk.

    I have heard both good and bad about Plusnet and it was the same with Sky.
    For me it was all about cost, Sky worked but I couldn't ignore the saving.

    Yes I missed that bit (was reading on phone earlier), but I am strictly Freeview so it isn't an issue for me.

    I might go down the Freeview path because there is very little worth watching on sky
    Thanks for the help :)

    If you bypass the broadband choice website and go directly to the Primus site, then you get a cheaper price for the broadband and line rental package.
    This line rental doesn't seem to offer free evening calls, otherwise good line rental price

    If I'm already with Primus and have am beyond the minimum contract period can I use that site to get the lower monthly rental or would I need to go direct to Primus?

    ive been with primus upto about 2 weeks ago, could not fault there service , i had no problems at all and was cheapest line rental in the uk, i never use land line so the £5.99 a month is a steal, one question i would have is what will the price be after the 12 months contract is up.

    Anyone on the Primus fiber deal? Their 38meg+ any time calls looks good? (http://www.primussaver.co.uk/fibre-broadband-38mb-anytime-call.html)

    But is their customer service any good??

    Hmm, worth noting that basic 1571 answering machine is £2.50/month and caller display is £2.50 per month... I think both are free from most other providers now? This is a very basic phone service (which is fine, but should be noted!)

    My experience of primus was terrible. The broadband constantly dropped, the speeds were bad. They would never reply to my emails about this. I requested someone to come and fix it several times which never happened and eventually had to go to the ombudsman to get out of my Contra ct as I was paying for no broadband. The ombudsman said they were ha information a lot of issues with this company as well. Eventually I got y money back and an apology off them about 7months later.

    If you click on the deal they offer line rental & free evening and weekend calls for £6.99 which is still a very good deal.

    This offer is about a Primus phone line not their broadband ..... don't make it go cold, thank you

    i don't have any line or broadband so forgive my ignorance but i will much appreciate the advise if i can get started right.
    So to get this deal, i need to pay for installation first? I do have a BT line plug but the line is inactive as the previous owner used to have a line i think. is there any way around installation charges? this deal sounds perfect for me as i don't use beyond freeview or don't use the phone to make calls either. i just need broadband so trying to minimize the total cost.

    thanks OP and all contributors, this seems to be a solution to my requirement.

    Thanks but Plusnet is included in the sales pitch for the broadband not Primus. I've been with both for nearly 3 years now, never had a problem with them. Plusnet also do unlimited broadband on their 10GB package between the hours of 12am-8am which makes this deal so attractive.
    lol

    Do you have a old inactive number mate? ....I was in the same boat as you, didn't want to pay for stupid prices of having the line reconnected. I signed up with a phone line company called http://www.madasafish.com/ just gave them the old telephone number . they didn't charge me anything for the reconnect ,
    I stayed with them for about 1-2 months ditched & switched to a different company so I could get the broadband. this was about 3 years ago , always worth a go if you don't want to pay the re connection charges.

    (Edit) sign up with madasafish £11.99 mth ...Add Plusnet standalone £8.49 stay with madasafish for about 2 months then ditch them for a Primus phoneline.
