If you are an existing customer it might be worth while phoning them up as my other half done it this morning and got 8gb for this price and it will stay at 8 even if we moved our broadband away from them
Plusnet can be hit and miss. I had like 4 sims with them at one point and one by one everyone left.
Cold . Lots of data in account but no data when you need it . Low priority on EE network.
Awful network.

This.
I used to defend Plusnet Mobile - been with them since they were called Life Mobile.

But I have to admit the coverage/signal quality has deteriorated significantly in the last 12 months without any improvement & I'm looking to leave

They used to be SO good... Great value, good coverage, but now Plusnet seem to have throttled their network for data and call priority, but managed to put their prices up to churn existing customers to rival networks so that they can rope in new customers.
I used to love them, but now I'm really not able to recommend them.
Terrible network... avoid

They use EE broadcasting so dont understand how it can diminish.

Clearly they don't have full access to the network. Enough comments from Plusnet customers on HUKD over the last year or so confirm this.

I’m going to leave in may as the 4g always seems to cut off all the time I’m on a 9gb plan and I’m wanting to leave soon as
I would recommend voxi because you can go to Europe for no extra cost (including turkey )

I've just rang up to upgrade. They have a 8gb for £8 they are offering. It's not on the website from what I can see, not even for Broadband Customers, but its an existing deal they have and seem to offer no problems if you phone and ask to be upgraded.

Proof?


Plusnet is part of EE and theretofore part of BT ... so they can prioritise PN sim cards on their network servers ..... PN bottom of the pile
don't go with these guys. they have poor signal and even worse customer service. bungling idiot of a company.
