Plusnet unlimited fibre £22.50 Month / 12 months - £295

288
Found 16th Feb
Unlimited Fibre broadband from plusnet is 25 per month if you pay monthly or 22.50 if you pay line rental upfront, if you factor in the 70 quid quidco you'll get it for around £19 per month or £17 if you do line rental saver.

I've moved from BT because of the recent price hikes and will be saving myself £9 a month even without the quidco.

12 month contract

Plus £25 activation fee

- Jinkz

+ Installation charge of £49.99

Installation charge only if a new line is required
- MacPhisto

Bear in mind you can't do a referral for another plusnet user and get quidco

Shame they do traffic shaping and the speed is lower compare to BT

Great price for broadband! Can you post the speed OP.
Anyone had plus net? Any good for gaming?

Had plusnet, move to BT for a deal, will be moving back to Plusnet, speed the same, but customer service is better.

Wong.

Was with them 7 years till I swapped to BT for a big cash back deal 5months ago. But now they price hikes ima cancel and go back to plusnet.

I can 100% guarantee no traffic shaping and identical line speed as BT. As proven by my fully automated Plex server with 9.7TB of content that gets all content via p2p, many public trackers too.

Shame it's ADSL

Oh right, didn't know that.

My bt discounted rate expires in April and will rise to over £40 pm, so I'm looking to bail. This deal looks perfect but I believe I am tied in still until the 1 months notice period.

Though... Qudico cahback has been so unreliable recently. Go via MSE and you get 50 cash back direct. Less, but least you'll actually get it.

I used to have broadband before the fibre days with plusnet and gaming was fine (ps3)

The speed I've been quoted is 40meg download but it says up to 38 meg on the page when you sign up so I'm not sure I go live at the start of march so will update then.

When I was last with plusnet I only used customer services to get a better deal and they were a joy to deal with, infact the only reason I moved was because of a sky offer that was free for 12 months including line rental

they say then can do this on there site

https://www.plus.net/help/broadband/about-traffic-prioritisation/

On the lower fibre BT is faster than Plusnet around 35% faster

Plusnet uploads speed is 2mb , BT is 10mb, i know BT is more but its not comparing like with like, oh and you get free caller display with BT, Plusnet charge 99p , and free weekend calls as well

Not saying its a bad deal just its not same as BT



Edited by: "deanos" 16th Feb

annoying that i moved to vodafone fibre and they force you to use the router they provide which is rubbish compared to my asus n66u

going to move back to plusnet but will cost me £25 connection fee and £25 fee i paid vodafone for connection too! costly mistake.

What's the upload speed on plusnet? Sky fibre is 38 down / 10 up.

Does anyone know rough speeds and reliability?
We left 36 at talktalk and 10 months ago we moved to BT to get 56 and its never been slower. Changed channel several times and I'm just over BT. The wireless reliability is dreadful.
Looking towards a 4k tellybox at some point so need something that'll allow amazon and Netflix to stream at 4k to us

That's on an unlimited fibre extra package through a vpn. We're fairly close to our local cabinet, 50 yards or so.

Deal wise I never said it was same as BT, if it was why move?

Line performance is identical to BT. And I'm not saying this as an average user, I'm an extremely heavy user (or was till I started working away from home 5days a week).

I'll happily sit here and explain an entire ISPs infasyructure to you if you like. Performance will be identical, to a degree. Shaping, speeds, reliability, faults etc.

I've 17months contact left with BT, moving to Plusnet saves me 2£ a month and boosts speed from 40 back to 70+, lowers contact 12months, £50-85 cash back depending and better customer support. I don't even plug my house phone in, so don't have to consider those factors.

They've put their prices up so you are entitled to leave without penalty regardless of contract.
Ofcom rules.
Just wait for your email telling you about price increase.

We got caught out with some of their deals. If you dont go unlimited your upload speed is capped to 1.5meg.

Now that we pay the extra money a month all seems to good. Cant complain (and we moved from BT)

It's actually VDSL



​whats the difference? never heard of VDSL.

I'm on the £22.49 unlimited fibre package with no phone line and I've been happy. Never had to contact CS so can't say whether they're good or not but everything has worked as promised.

I get speeds of around 70/20 on WiFi but I am using my own router and a more highend wireless AC dongle. Oddly enough when I upload to YouTube I get 40 on the upload - none of my friends believed it so I even downloaded netlimiter and some other programs and could see I was actually uploading at 40. Obviously can't complain there!

When I first got the line I was getting 60/20 for a good year or so though, not sure how it ended up on 70/20 but again no complaints!

all this for £27 a month all in, no phone line http://i67.tinypic.com/25pjy4k.png

I signed up last month on 19.01.17 paid line rental upfront £185.88 and fibre £28 less line rental, on the 20.01.17 they email me at 03.40am saying my line was connected but no fibre by 09.02.17 I still wasnt connected to fibre so I cancel the contract I have now taken them to court to recover my line rental saver as they have refused to refund me back, to me that says it all. I will make the point cheap is for a reason and sonner or later your pay for it being cheap. I have now had to sign up to BT and wont be connected till 23.02.17 Plus net is worse then TalkTalk go and read trustpilot before you sign up.

Basically, VDSL is FTTC.

The poster state he's moved from BT because of the price changes well Plus.net are puting the Prices up as well it's only TalkTalk who have stated that they will not increase there chages but no one wants to go with them.

Bookie

That's plusnet



Looking good. But isn't fibre extra the top package, up to 78mbps or similar? I'm interested to know the upload speed for the standard 38mbps fibre package.

I would love to know where he gets he saying £9 like for like.

Doubt they'll be going up by 9 quid a month or 15ish if I get the cash back

And where have I said it's like for like? They're very similar products and will suit my needs fine!
Edited by: "bauer" 16th Feb

Been with them for years no issues BUT they don't allow you to change the date of the direct debit. They keep saying the option is coming but it never does. Make sure you select and arrange a date for it before committing. Every month it comes out the week before payday when I've forgot about it!

Yes, and virgin traffic shaping is insanely aggressive. If it's not with virgin meh, either way not available in most areas.
Cable only have a 50%+ rating, 'fibre' has around 90 now.

Fibre btw is generally VDSL, this used to just be a marketing term but now refers to high bitrate connections. Basically meaning you don't have a fibre line directly to you home but to the local cabinet. Then a DSL connection over your copper wire to the cab. This lets it be accessed from streets that don't have cable lines(around 50% of us).

So VDSL used to be **** but these days 's extremely stable and plenty fast enough. Internet is getting like a sports car these days.... Derek I've a 1024mb line but the you'll only go 5mb 99.99% of the time.
By which I've dumbed down a lot, let me explain.

My car can hit 150mph ish, I've only ever once taken it above 85mph... There is simply no need, you can stream full 4k content easily on 40-50mb, as well as download the generations largest games at a good speed.

I put much more stock in reliability, latency and shaping. People in conference calls disconnect often.... And all of them on virgin

Besides the fact that you have to use their router are they that bad? I've got them installing on Monday =(

I wouldn't go back to plus net if you paid me

Sub par customer service when attempting to resolve issues.

Connection always dropping or seemed to be capped.
