Good deal.
Can anyone tell me what the situation is if you only have just over a month to run with your current ISP?
Can you stipulate a future date to start the contract to avoid early exit penalty with current ISP (Sky) who will
also require notice.?

Yes you can specify a future date. I think only 30 days out though - that seemed to be the furthest out available in the dropdown in the order process.

Where is the drop down box to select a future date?

The T&C box states "Please tick this box to confirm you agree to the terms and conditions and that you'd like us to make a start with providing your services as soon as possible"

I've been with them 2 months now. Fantastic, topcashback paid out aswell, received it the end of last week. On 38mbps

Apologies I can't remember which screen but it was there as part of the process (possibly the same one you choose a router or not, porn-filtering or not, etc), before you get to entering your bank and cc details.

Have they, stopped the cash back deal & topcashback as well now ?

Great deal, but I'm still contracted to BT for another 2 months.

If only they would pay my termination costs as well.

If I go for the cashback can I still use my friends Plus Net referral code? Or can I only use one of the other?

My contact with BT ends 13 Nov, I tried today to get EE (same company as Plusnet) to start it 14 Nov as I'm on holiday till then, and they couldn't, they gave a 8 to 10 working days changeover, no picking the date.

My BT is due up on 8th December, does anyone know if this is too far ahead to use this deal?

Is it unlimited & no capping or throttling during peak hours?

More or less the same what im paying with ee + anytime calls £39

Possibly too far out - you won't be able to select 8th Dec as an installation date until the first few days of November. You could try calling Plusnet and asking them to delay the installation date manually.

If it was me, I'd wait until 30 days prior then look for the best deal available then...


To answer the other poster:

- yes, it is unlimited

- plusnet have ended their throttling and traffic management practices: ispreview.co.uk/ind…tml

I tried to order the 24.99 broadband but the price increased to 32.99 once I had entered my semi rural post code. Plusnet appear to be the only ISP that charge more for rural areas.

I'm not sure if it's perfectly legal to advertise at one price and then charge another. Voted cold as the price is misleading.

Very poor customer service and speeds less than what I was getting with other providers.

We are on the 38Mbs having paid for the faster speed for 2 years (no one told us that the line maximum had been reduced by Open Reach). Beware that the upload rate is capped at 1.9Mbs, so if you upload a lot this will be a problem; I only found out last week when I was trying to upload some dashcam footage for someone in front of me who was in an accident. I had to chop down the 3 minute segment to the bare minimum.

I could not find the option to delay the contract start date. Just rang Plusnet and you only get the option to select the date if you are with certain providers (e.g. BT), if you are with Sky you are not given the option.

However, you can still do it. Place the order online as normal with 'install as soon as possible'. Then after the order is placed, ring Plusnet and ask to speak to the commissioning team and tell them the date you want it installed.

It has to be within 30 days.

For those currently with BT, who remain with BT solely due to BTSport for £3.50, you can add BTSport to your Plusnet (BT group subsidiary) contract for £5. (plus.net/tv/…rt/)

They mention it's £5 with YouView TV from Plusnet (I can't see any TV packages advertised), but to me the BTSport app is easiest. Either cast directly to your TV from the app on your phone if it's a recent TV, or via Chromecast if your TV doesn't support direct casting. No access to 4K streaming, but I've never had a problem with the app or picture (I think the app's max bandwidth streams in 720p) on a 55" screen.

1 month contract on BTSport, which can be added or removed any time on the PlusNet website.

BT and vodafone will pay leaving fees for you if you leave your current provider early BT pay upto £350 and Vodafone upto £100, I have used them both

Make sure you set a reminder for contract end because they hike up the price to silly money without telling you once the contract period is up.
Don't know when that became normal practice but got caught out by it...

TCB has changed now - 18 months contract + 25 activation fee

Don't worry about long contract lengths - mostly likely the ISP will increase the prices within the term and then you can leave penalty free to another ISP, taking up another cashback offer

Still showing as £85/70 on TCB for me (without logging in, so it's not some special deal)?

TCB is still £85/70 ,but for 18 months not 12, like it was before. Also plusnet has changed offers, so your deal is expired Im glad that I signed in last night, because new plusnet offers are not so good in my humble opinion. TCB tracked almost straight away.
