This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Plusnet Broadband (via TCB) gives £17 a month, OR £174 for 12 months if you take Line Rental Saver

Also £70 potential cashback from TCB

£174 - £70 = £104
£104 / 12 = £8.67 a month

TCB ends in 3 days, £17 (£173) deal on Plusnet ends in 5 days

You have to click through TCB to get this price and to get the 12 month contract.

(As an alternative, go via uSwitch to get the same price deal and £50 cashback from Plusnet direct)

Going to Plusnet direct will give you £19.99 for 18months.

Its an 18 month contract, which is pretty much standard these days. Vodafone is also 18 months

Not if you go via the TCB link, it's 12 months.

What's the connection like, is it better than BT. I'm with BT and pay £21.99 and it's ending next month. Shall I stick or twist

I've only switched today (from Sky), but had them before and had no issues. BT own Plusnet so I'd expect it to be very much the same - but maybe others have experiences to share...
Positively the worst customer service I have experienced, will NEVER use Plusnet again

AVOID

Clearly never had to deal with talk talk then! Out of interest what was so bad about your experience? Was it the set up? speed? Hardware related? I was about to recommend PN to a relative as I’ve not had any issues.
I have seen that PlusNet has recently attracted some negative reviews for customer services. This is a surprise and a shame, if the standard is falling. My elederly parents have been with PlusNet for 5 years and PlusNet have always looked after them really well.
I switched from BT to Plusnet, found that the WiFi dropped out many times, family all complained, gave it a couple of months, still happening.
In the end re-installed the BT router changed the settings, and it works fine now, assume the Plusnet router isn’t as good as the BT router.
My experience is very reliable internet but poor customer service. Was a customer for a couple of years but they made no effort to keep me as a customer, retention deals well below standard. Moved to NOW broadband for the same broadband speed less a third of the price.
Just renewed my Fibre Extra for £7/month for 12 months (+Line Rental Saver for £197.88 ) so it's still in sync.
Took some patience with CS and willingness to walk away (quoting other providers new customer prices) before I settled.

Wouldn't wish Minusnet on my worst enemy - I'm just waiting for my contract to run out! Crafty boogers use fixed price contracts to avoid the get out of 'jail' free escape.

"Minusnet - they'll do you up proud"
Anyone renewed with BT recently and what kind of deals were you offered. I am so nervous and don't have any good deals on me to negotiate with them

I'm with BT on the 67meg unlimited and phone line.
Called the 2 days ago about a new contract and they wanted to drop me th the 55meg package but tried to say it was the same package.
It's not as I'm on the infinity 2.
Anyway the best they could do was £27.99 for the 55meg as I was not a new customer. I've been with them for 10 plus years ( no loyalty from them anymore.
I can switch to Plusnet for the 67meg unlimited plus line for £24.99 and get a £70 voucher through uswitch or just use TopCashBack and get £80 back.

Still far better than BTs poor offer.

Also Talk Talk is £21.95 but no cash back via uswitch..

I'm on Superfast fibre 1 and pay £21.99 with free BT sports for 18 months. I'm up for renewal this month because contract ends February 2020. I was offered Superfast fibre 2 for same price last week

I would take it.
I currently have bt sport on my tablet. Will not sign for the sport with bt as I rarely watch it.
I'm not paying £27.99 for slower speed, when I can go with plusnet for £24.99 and £80 cashback for the 67meg i currently on.
May even go with Talk Talk.
Woah it's chilly in here!

£8.67 for standard broadband is a brilliant deal in my opinion, but I guess it's the bad experiences of customer service letting it down - which is a shame.

TCB has tracked for me too so fingers crossed that pays out nicely with no hassle.
Thanks for that. BT screwing me for £32.99 for same deal.

I have plusnet Broadband and you cannot rely on the service with it dropping out several times a day. I had a great price deal I did want broadband but that doesn't seem to be something they can supply
Thanks

They offered SF1 for £19.99 but won't give me BT sport even though I signed up online
This is still showing £70 cashback fron TCB and plusnet still doing the £174 line saver so this deal is still on!

Thanks! I'll unexpire it even though it's gone super chilly - I still think it's a great deal, I think some people just hate Plusnet ... but if it helps a few people that's all it needs to do
Yes, I'll be going for this if sky does not give me a good renewal deal.
With my Plusnet 18 month contract coming to an end today, I ended up signing up with Post Office, fibre BB and landline for £21pcm and £50.50 Topcashback with 12 month contract. Plusnet wanted £22 to renew for another 18 months.

Post Office activation date is on 21st Jan, having signed up at the weekend, but among the "sorry you are leaving" blurb from Plusnet, they are trying to make out I will have a fine for leaving early... No, my contract ends todays and I'm still connected via Plusnet for another 12 days!

I had exactly the same with Sky.. I am leaving a whole 7 days early, and they are 'charging' me £1.25 according to the letter but we'll see what the final bill looks like!
They have changed the contract lenght to 18 months now which is a shame !!!

I reckon Post Office will be next cheapest. It's £15.90 per month, go via TCB to get £50.50 cashback (potentially) to give you £11.69 (equivalent) over a 12 month contract.

I went with Post Office "fibre" BB and landline phone for ~£21 for first six months (while opt-in free weekend calls active, then +£2pcm), for up to 38Mb/sec (we get 18+), no activation fee and £50.50 Topcashback (yet to see this in my account, but then the contract doesn't start until 21st Jan having placed order on 5th). Also only a 12-month contract, which seems rarer now than in summer 2018.

I don't know if that's the best overall deal for "fibre" speeds, but it seemed decent at time. I was tempted to ditch landline phone and BB altogether to try Three unlimited mobile SIM in a router for ~£22pcm, but speeds and latency were quite variable here. I nearly signed up for Virgin M100 phone and cable BB, we might have then ended up with ~5x BB speeds, but I got stressed about the prospect of having to cancel Plusnet myself due to Virgin having their own cabling away from BT Openreach that traditional landline phone/BB use.

If you haven't bought it yet, looks like BroadbandGenie are doing a £50 Amazon voucher for the Post Office - I didn't see this earlier so could be a flash deal.

Go via TCB (£30.30) to Broadband Genie, get the £50 Amazon voucher from them and sign up to Post Office.
£15.90 x 12 = £190.80
£190.80 - £50 - £30.30 = £110.50
£110.50 over 12 months is equiv. to £9.20 a month
Thanks will consider it. Are Post office any good with broadband? Anyone got experience on them?
