PlusNet broadband - Free for 12 months (12m contract) with £135 Qudico + £75 Cashback - Better than free!

Found 3rd Aug 2016
Just signed up to Plusnet standard ADSL (unlimited) broadband.
Its Free for 12 months on a 12 month contract with £75 cash back (from Plus Net).
Quidco are offering £135 for Standalone ADSL packages on top of this.

You just pay line rental (£16.99/ mo) but i went for the line rental saver @ £185.88 up front.

So you get £210 cash back in total for your package which only costs £185.88 + £6.99 router P&P charge.

So... i have the equivalent of free line rental, free broadband, free router and £17.13 in my back pocket

Seems like a no-brainer!

------ UPDATE ------
Quidco Cashback has tracked @ £135.

------ UPDATE 2 ------
Get an extra £5.58 if you have a Santander 1-2-3 account and opt to pay the line rental saver by DD! - thanks ahotukdeal

I don't think you'll get the plusnet cashback and the quidco. I did an offer with plusnet when they had £50 plusnet cashback and £30 quidco, the quidco cashback was rejected after a few months.

I disagree, on the Quidco page for PlusNet there are reviewers saying they have had both!

Quite a few people saying they got both cashbacks OK.

Interesting definition of no-brainer. You signed-up for the Plusnet 12m contract offering £75 Plusnet cashback, yet the Quidco deal is "Get free ADSL for 18 months on an 18 month contract when you take out line rental". So no Quidco cashback for your 12m contract purchase.

The left hand side of Quidco states the cashback is for standalone ADSL orders (has no specifics).
The right hand side of the page is to show current offers on ADSL from PlusNet (which is out of date).

The cashback is still applicable even with the different offer from Plusnet.

Worst case scenario is that you would not get the Quidco and it works out at £9.82pm for your broadband and line rental which has to be the cheapest offer around anyway?

I will update with any tracking info i get from Quidco, Quidco cash back offer ends in 4 days... so maybe worth a shot for others anyway!
It's free but up to 17mb download speed ... No thanks

To be fair, I'm a software developer and often work from home and my standard ADSL has been fine.
I get a good speed for ADSL (14-17mb) and its enough to stream TV and HD films etc...
Fibre is nice if you download a lot, but i don't download much, i stream...

Your OP states that you purchased 12m line rental coincident with 12m broadband, yet the offer you quote "is for standalone ADSL orders". You have not placed a "standalone ADSL order", you have placed an ADSL combined with landline order.
I wish you well, but it may be worth a clarification query to QC and/or PN, although that in itself may trigger declined cashback.

You can't buy standalone ADSL broadband without a line via PlusNet (or anyone else for that matter).

I don't have a package with my order... just the line + ADSL.
I used the page that the Quidco link took me to in order to order the item, so that must be the correct page.

As i have said, ill keep people updated on my order, i can always cancel within 14 days if it doesn't track OR just accept that ill be paying <£10/mo for my phone and broadband, which is cheaper than most people pay for line rental alone.

Still a good deal.

Or if you live on my street - 1.5Mbps. Yack!!!!

Plusnet openly promote its "Broadband Only" product with no requirement to have a Plusnet line: "You'll need to pay line rental to Plusnet or another BT based landline provider to get our broadband. If you opt to switch your phone service to Plusnet, we'll reduce your monthly broadband price by £2.50...

I got both last year, £130 Quidco that paid fine and a £50 cheque from Plusnet

what's adsl
The tracking link takes you to the quidco / plusnet page, there is no £75 cashback here, although on the Plusnet site i can see the £75 cashback. How can you switch from tracking site to main site and it all go through and track on quidco?

Great Deal

Was with plusnet 2 years ago with similar cashback and got both from Quidco and Plusnet cheque
Great deal.

I would miss my 8MB a second download with fibre, but would swap paying £25 a month for nothing.

The only time my broadband stretches it's legs is on Steam, which is really the only place you need it since games are getting to become over 50gb in size.

Great deal, I need something like this come March time, currently in a BT ADSL contract until then (which cost me £68 for the year inc. AMC/BT Sport)...

Was with PlusNet before... customer service isn't great (when you need it) but the service itself was fine, good speeds. Got that for £92 so to get this free with money back is brilliant! Best broadband deal I've seen in a while.

Like most I have ADSL, 17-19Mbps generally... more than sufficient for 2 of us on our devices, streaming TV and my work VPN all at the same time. No need for fibre!
Do you get free bt wifi hotspots with this ?

Witty comeback, let's see how this plays out.

I don't believe so - you didn't last year and I can't see anything to suggest you do now.
Thanks for posting. I'm going to look into this.
I got TCB + PlusNet £75 cashback from an old MSE offer which i'm on currently, this is crazy good

Just don't go for the up to 38mb Fibre and expect the download speed to be anything other than 2mb. Flipping disgusting. Just switched to them and they said that's all you get now. Pile of poo. Looking to cancel as they just put prices up without notifying me.

I'm sure there's actually more to this story.

What do you get with dslchecker.bt.com/ ?
speed 3-8MB i dont know what's that mean, but it's half of speed of my current broadband(my current speed cant watch 1080p without lag)
this must be the reason the service is getting so bad. too many people signing up these days.
Good deal, but have to get fibre in my village for any decent speed

I get 4.5mbit on mine and it's enough to stream 720p content with only minor issues occasionally. 1080p is a no no though.
thanks. I just make switch from sky.
Ive been on plusnet for a few years, I get about 22mb-24mb connection, stream about 500gb per month.
You don't get WiFi hotspots
If it's free then worth it but plusnet are rubbish!

​u actually only need 2/3mb to watch 1080p, it just needs to be stable. if you've got peaks and troughs u can't watch it. what you streaming on? if your getting 6 to 16mb u should easily watch 1080. think you need to look into your set up imo

To be honest, this is a problem with OpenReach and their absolutely terrible database for line speeds. It is a standard issue, and every ADSL customer can suffer from it, no matter who your "provider" is.
Can't get it in my area for free.

Try living on an EO line, that was capable of 4mb's. Then via Openreach incompetence after a line fault has seen me moved to a congested DSLAM, line switched & now I can get 2.8mb/s. Of which DLM kicks me down to 2.3mb's every couple of weeks & I need to contact the ISP to get the profile reset. A 17 meg connection to millions of people in the UK would be a godsend if they could get it.
