Plusnet are BT so you should include BT as well then... We have had Plusnet since the summer and no problems whatsoever. I used to have a small issue with my Macbook on BT (sometimes the connection would hang and I think it had to do with the BT router using the 5Ghz band) but everything is fine with the Plusnet router.
We are paying the same and getting more speed... 80Mbps downstream and 20 upstream (I just checked the router stats)

Decisions, decisions. Looking to change to fibre but when you start to look at reviews for all the major players it’s so tricky deciding. I suppose with reviews though is people are more likely to post a review of problems they’ve had rather than than if it runs smoothly so it’s tricky to gauge how good the service actually is.

Only 70 TCB for the 22.99 package

I’m thinking of this or Vodafone. Cancelled with BT.

That’s good to know. I’m torn between this and the Vodafone deal.

The Vodafone deal appeals to me more I’m going to go for that later today.

At the time I went with Plusnet rather than Vodafone because I heard Vodafone CS is a nightmare in general to deal with so that put me off them.

Only 2Mbps upload speed instead of 10

This price is only available if you live in a "low cost" area! If not then the price increases by £7.50! OFCOM should be ashamed for allowing such bull as I live only 5 miles from a large town and only 18 miles for two main cities. Who allows them to make up such rubbish?

That’s the same reason I’m not leaning towards Vodafone

I find plusnet to be very good, no problems with constant download speeds. When I was with BT my WiFi often dropped out, but since changing nearly a year ago not a single drop out.

Nice find op , tempted but going to wait for bf then jump. Heat added.

Yes that seems to apply to many ISP's - low cost areas is where other ISP's install their own equipment alongside BT's and so there's competition at that location and prices are different to those that live in an area where the BT exchange is the only equipment so it's fixed at a higher price...... I think.

Only 2Mbps upload speed instead of 10


It recently changed to 10Mbps upload. Post from 3 weeks ago: community.plus.net/t5/…315

"At the moment, customers on this product can get upload speeds of ‘up to 1.9Mbps’ but we’re increasing that to ‘up to 9.5Mbps’, at no additional cost."

"New Plusnet Unlimited Fibre customers will start getting the faster upload speed from the point of sign-up, and we’ll also start to move our existing ‘up to 38Mbps’ customers to the faster upload speed from November."

Anyone know who would be the best between Plusnet and vodafone for speed in the evening? Currently being restricted on SSE and its driving the family nuts.

Ah, shame they don't have a deal on the 76mb fibre. I need that more for the upload speed than download.

TT and PN have improved dramatically over the years, yes about 5 years ago they were just terrible, and i could not even stream iplayer or have a stable connection with either back then, but in the last few years they have really improved their service, and i am on TT fibre for 27 quid a month with free sim with unlimited text and i have had a almost perfect service from them..........so they have both certainly changed from the bad old days for the better.

I don't know in the "real world" but it does say it doesn't throttle speeds: plus.net/hel…on/

Voted cold because theyv just changed it to 18months from 12. The Vodaphone or EE deals are better value 18monyh contacts than this.

What is the cancellation policy like if you move house within contract, do they charge early termination fees?

I dont know how, PN limited most of their 38Mb packages to 2Mb up, and 78Mb packages to 10Mb up. I know they have eased the restrictions on the lower packages to 10Mb up, but not heard of any changes to the more expensive packages.

Are you sure you are not confusing sync speed with actual data throughput?? The router I stuck on my parents line showed that sync speed was 3 times what PN claimed they could have - and had been limiting them to for many years.

Trying to get PN to sort it was going around in circles; it wasnt until I publicly called them on it, using an ISP specific forum, that they finally claimed "it was all a mistake" and fixed the issue. No compensation though, or apology.

Want to switch from BT to this deal using the BT price rise excuse to avoid cancellation charges. Do I need to contact BT first?

Yes, I missed BT from the list; thank you for pointing that out.

BT were my first "Never Again" company, after they cut me off while I was on a 12 day holiday. Bill, reminder, red letter, cut off notification and cut off all in 10 days, with the letters dated 1 day after each other, so the cut off letter was posted the same day the bill arrived (about an hour after I left on holiday if postie called at his usual time).

Glad PN are working for you; they work for a lot of people, but for others they are a nightmare company who wont admit to faults or errors, and even when proven, wont fix them without some major prodding.

For a service company, the ONLY metric that counts is how well they deal with problems, BT, TT and PN score very low whenever something beyond the complexity of "change a light bulb" occurs.

It IS possible to turn these companies around, Sky had a terrible rep their first few years as an ISP, but now they are highly rated; BT, TT and PN never seem to learn.

Yep, sync speed. I did say router stats and used terms such as downstream and upstream. I haven't talked about speed tests.

We have the fibre extra package so up to 78Mb and 70Mb at least guaranteed I think it is.
We pay £29.99. We were paying that to BT for Infinity 1.

Read the above to understand why I dont trust BT or PN; there isnt enough time left, even geologically speaking, to go into the issues I have experienced trying to sort out a TT issue, lets just say that something that should have taken an hour for an engineer to fix was dragged out over nearly 2 YEARS..

Oh, to the above mention of PN, add "spent 3 DAYS trying to get them to answer their "dedicated new customer" line, when a new line wouldnt connect".

We are talking about sitting in a queue for 2 hours, getting cut off, re-dialling and sitting in a queue during 2 1/2 full working days. I never did get them to answer, I eventually figured it out myself; their "pre configured for your convenience" router was mis-configured; when I finally managed to get into it, I entered the correct details and it worked.

It had been set up with someone elses account details and passwords; so instant Data Protection Act breach; especially as this was their business service..

It uses alternative words.

"In exceptional circumstances the network could become much busier than expected. ------ In these situations, we would prioritise time-sensitive traffic such as VoIP, streaming and gaming on our network,"

So any time they are busy, you could find various services throttled as they "prioritise".

This comes down to how much bandwidth they have bought per customer, and cheapo ISPs are notorious for not buying enough, so expect "prioritising" during peak "out of school" times, evenings and weekends.

OH!! All the times you most want it!!!

How?

Vodafone works out £18.83

£20x18 - £21 TCB = £339

This works out £17.43 if cashback is paid out accordingly.

As I said, sync speed its what the line can handle, actual speed is limited by the ISP and by BT themselves. My line is capable of over 100Mb, but BT limit it to 79.999Mb.
PN have been notorious for limiting peoples speeds and claiming it is not their problem "congestion at the exchange" was the excuse my parents were given, even though I live further from the exchange and got 4 times the download speed PN would give them. (When I had ADSL)

I pay for a premium service with a small ISP called Aquiss; only one internet issue in many years, and that was sorted within an hour; 2 physical line failures were dealt with in 2 days each, while neighbours with the same storm damage had to wait up to 2 weeks for their ISPs to call Open Reach.

They also got me online with a new physical line, and a fibre connection in 10 days, after my old connection got slammed by a rogue ISP; BT were quoting 6-8 weeks just for the new line.
(The line was transferred to TT, another reason I down vote them - because they wouldnt release it or my phone number)

Can anyone who has taken up this offer today tell me what activation date they have been given please? My BT contract ends on 25th of this month so would not want a date before this.

I don't doubt it. My point was that for the same price we are getting higher max speeds.

I believe you can select what date you want after the first one available so you could pick one that suits you.
