I went for the normal fibre (£23.99). How much of an improvement is the Fibre Extra?

It will only make a difference if you got let say more than 5 devices in the house connected to it at the same time.

The immediately noticeable difference is you get twice the upload speed with Extra, if you work from home and/or sling big files about this is more valuable than the extra download speed.
Plusnet have been great over the years. Recommended. On fibre extra
As b1g1an says, it's the upload speed doubling which makes the difference. I've got 6 IP cams, all with motion detection recording, having a quick upload rate is pretty vital for those.
im with BT and i see they up'd there price again. Was looking to change but SKY werent very good at all when i was with them before. i have CCTV cameras on my network, three kids constantly on their ipads and phones and does anyone have any comparison between plusnet and BT. BT have been pretty good to be fair
Historically the biggest drawback Plusnet has had over BT is the quality of the router. Is the latest Plusnet router any good or is still rubbish?

I didn't think about this at all! If someone had mentioned this to me earlier I may have just gone with the Plusnet Extra. I have 4 Samsung full HD cameras outside which is connected to the network for remote viewing. Don't know whether the standard fibre is sufficient?
My brilliant BT fibre deal ends 28th march (12months £28.99 pm with £325 cash back) is this the best thats out there at the mo?

I've had it for 6 months and it's been best router given by provider so far. It has coverage everywhere in the house as well as to the end of back garden which all other routers failed to do including virgin v3.
Get a bt smart hub for cheap on eBay. Prob best isp supplied router. Got one on my plusnet line.
Deciding between Plusnet and SSE at the minute (bt are now charging £50 now im out of contract!), this seems like a good deal but SSE is a month by month contract for the same price. Whats peoples experiences with SSE?
Plusnet are a decent provider in my opinion. The customer service is easily contactable and will do their best to help if / when something goes wrong in my experience.

Don't know if things have changed recently but they started giving different coloured bt home hubs ages ago.

The current Plusnet router is basically a rebadged BT home hub 5. It can be modded to run OpenWRT which is especially handy if you want to run a VPN. I got a BT Home Hub6 secondhand for £14 from Shpock which runs fine on Plusnet too.

I switched from BT 80/20 to Plusnet when BT put their prices up. Exactly the same connection speed, just loads cheaper. I can even use the HH5 as I did with BT.
I joined them 3 months ago when quidco offered £85 cashback.
"Plusnet has declined your cashback"

Fed up of these deals where cashback gets declined.
I joined plusnet on 18th January download speed was poor on 38mb so upgraded to 76 got max of 48 which is below minimum so after many complaints on their forum I migrated again to aquiss went live yesterday now above 56mb and get through on phone without having to wait, plusnet is cheaper but you get what you pay for, also rumour joining up with bt fully soon.

"You get what you pay for" should be a quote never uttered by a seasoned HUKD'er
I got my 78 mbit from vodafone for 24 a month. Router is deffo better than plusnet's.
they'll do you, but you won't be proud.

I have been with SSE for the last 2 years - no problems at all so I have no idea about customer service - just looking for a cheaper provider with phone anytime
Thanks to this deal my plusnet was switched over yesterday, im trying to set up portworking for my cctv cameras that are in the router but i cant seem to find that the plusnet router will do that. if i cant do that i will have to switch back to BT
