julieallen - might not be the best deal but it might be a good deal, which is what this website is for. If people only posted the best deals there would likely be a lot fewer postings. Anyway, what is a good or the best deal is subjective; what is the best for one person may be pretty awful to someone else. Its £17.30 line rental plus £3 for anytime calls and there may be other charges too - e.g. the router is free but how much is delivery? OP is short on details.

I have the SSE deal mentioned above, at £12 a month line rental with w/end calls and broadband and £45 cashback. That's a great deal but not the greatest which was with EE, which, after £136.50 cashback, came out at less than £3 a month for a year!

That's not entirely true, LLU doesn't run that way or not in the same fashion. The biggest potential problem with broadband other than specific line issues is backhaul contention, which will differ on LLU providers.

The services are on the Openreach network, so it's the same telephonr line as BT, Sky, Talk Talk, Plusnet etc. I've been with them since they were known as Primus Saver and I've never experienced any issues with them. Before there use to be quite long call waits but now I'm only waiting 1-2 minutes and then I'm through to someone who actually speaks english properly. It's a major plus over other providers.

"Total monthly cost: £17 /month for 6 months then £19 /month thereafter" equals £216 not £192.

Sorry to have to ask me old shipmates, but why is this such a bad deal?


Did you not see the two comments before yours?

Shocking customer service, I moved address, and took them four months to sort, lost the move order, I refused to keep paying and they tried debt collection. Wouldnt touch them with a 100ft barge pole.

I took a chance with this firm and found:

*The stability of delivery of the internet is better than plusnet who I have just left.

*The change over was smooth with no issues at all.

*I do have to reset the router a couple of times a week.

Welcome to HUKD Martin Lewis.

me thinks poster works 4 them :-P

They are pretty cheap, but ive had some fairly terrible customer service from them on my pay up front account.

They charged the annual fee up front as expected, then have then tried to collect the annual fee again by direct debit on 2 separate monthly bills in the 6 months ive been with them.
Unfortunately their billing system is very slow, the bill is dated 1st or 2nd of the month, but you can't access it until the middle of the month. I've spent 4 hours on hold trying to get through to their cs, who then tell you it is too late in the month to correct the bill before the direct debit payment is taken, so they'll have to cancel the direct debit.

It then took them several months to apply the credit, during which time they continued to send threatening emails, letters, texts and they also charged me additional monthly fees for not having a direct debit in place, even though they cancelled it and told me not to reinstate it.

Most of the errors on my account have now been corrected, but only after about 4 months.

Coming from talktalk, I thought cs could get no worse, I was wrong. Lesson learnt: once the 12 months are up I'm going back to plusnet.

Look at the extra charges on the phone package !! £2.50 for Caller Display, they are 'aving a laugh.

And they are not the cheapest line rental in the UK as they state, I pay less.

No mention of speeds, data limits, fup, etc? I'll pass, thanks.

Actually thinking of giving my line rental to them as well, even though it's a little more than Primus (Both do a deal for paying a years line rental in advance which is worth considering).



Like you, I've used Primus for the line rental as it is cheaper than most (all?) and Plus.Net for my ISP (10 years using them at end of March). Didn't know Primus offered a lower cost paying annually, so thanks for that info. I've been happy with Primus and had no problems even when getting things moved (I was with BT at last property from Feb 2010, locked in as the line installation was free, then switched to Primus after 18 months with BT, and then a few months later moved home from Wales to Merseyside). I was considering them for a second line, but MoneySavingExpert.com had a warning about poor CS recently (04.02.2013) so maybe I'll need to put that on the back burner.

Moving home with Primus and Plus.Net was very easy, but in my case I already had Three mobile broadband (15 GB/month for about 8 quid) so when I had moved it didn't matter about any delays getting line working and then getting Plus.Net into service. In my experience with Primus CS over those few weeks was fine - I just had to let them know when I had the keys and they got on with getting the line working (moved from Wales on 22.12.2011, stayed in Staffordshire with my sister for Christmas and New Year, and moved into new home on 23.01.2012).

Plus.Net (despite being told I would contact them once move had taken place,) were constantly in touch asking about progress - think this is a function of their ticketing system and even if it said somewhere that I would get back to them, my guess is different people each time were seeing ticket opened in December and felt 'best get in touch' and I was almost ready to tell them to 'leave me be' but it might have delayed broadband when I had moved, so said nothing in the weeks they were contacting me...

One downside with the increase in popularity at Plus.Net is how long it can take when phoning them. I've been typing this while in the queue (luckily 0800 073 1120) but need to be somewhere for 7:45 so have to hang up and go...

Have to wait for very long time to get customer service. Wrong billing for the first month and have to chase them several times to agree for the refund.



While it sounds like you've had a bad experience, every single time I contacted them I had an answer the same day regardless of weekend or weekday.

At one point every time I powered up my Alienware laptop the router would reboot, so I emailed them at 12:30pm on the off-chance they knew what it was, the same day by 5am (while I was still asleep) they had pinpointed the problem existing with some Fujitsu and Alienware/Dell machines and dispatched a replacement Wireless-N router.

The two minor times I had a billing issue (which was a result with BT being totally useless and not updating the market area I was in) they updated it within the day.

I remember Primus was recommended by Martin Lewis a few years back.
Went with them for my phone calls only and they were ok.Only reason I left was because BT offered me a good deal.
Sounds like they've gone downhill now.

Line rental advance saver works out to £10.50 per month now I think. They also do Quidco.It may seem like I'm shamelessly plugging them but you just have to read any review and they consistently come out on top - I don't think I've ever been with an ISP I've actually thought was actively good (as opposed to 'it works so it's ok'). Also you can monitor usage online easily and accurately through their portal (I used to be on 10GB).I also hail these guys as heroes after TalkTalk butchered my connection and within 3 days over Christmas Plus.net had my landline connected and broadband 2 days early!

As far as I understand, Primus is not a fully unbundled service (unlike Sky or Talk Talk) so you're free to choose any broadband provider available over the regular BT network to use on top of your line rental.



Indeed. My line is with Primus, but broadband is from Plus.Net. It's effectively a BT line, and I'm not paying them for (many) calls - for 01/02/03 I can use 1899.com (dial 1899 before the full number) at 5p per call. Currently you can get line rental at 8.49/month via the link on MoneySavingExpert / HomePhoneChoices (?) but it was below 8 quid when I signed up in 2011 for just phone line, and I kept using them once I had moved home, too. Have not used their broadband, but might consider it as a 'backup' once I can get fibre installed (on another line).

youtube etc 2/3 devices
playstation/xbox etc

Sorry about the mistake in the OP guys. It is infact an 18 month contract and works out at £6.32pm after all discounts. Still marginally cheaper per month than the alternative deal from Home Phone Choice but with a 50% longer minimum term.

Does anyone know how long the Home Phone Choice deal has been running for / likely to last? Only that you don't seem to be able to take out a new line with that deal (only port in from another provider) so we'd presumably have to join someone like Post Office home phone for a month first before switching - and hoping the Home Phone Choice deal is still running by then.

If you are on VM Cable, then it is not straightforward.



How do you go about doing it? I was looking at O2 phone + broadband but again, that would need a BT line.

How easy is it to switch from VM to Primus?

Anybody signing up for 18 months with this crowd must need their brains looking at.

Beware they are not as cheap as you think. Any additional services are expensive to add on. Frustrating to call as when I was with them it was an Indian call centre.
