Beware, they do traffic manage, I have just left them for virgin as when I download films, the whole house goes down and I can't use the internet on any device until the download is complete. I was on ee before them and had no problem using the internet whilst I was downloading.
Plusnet wanted £34 a month for Fibre, calls and line rental. I've been a customer since 2011. I cancelled and joined Sky Broadband, same package cost me £17.40 a month. Seems good so far.

Not bad, I got the same deal for 18 months. Just in process of transferring.

Unlimited Fibre Extra and Line Rental is £29.99 inc. free activation on a 12 month contract too for some who may want the extra speed. Not aware of the direct link (as it's not shown at this price currently on the Plusnet site), but it's available to click through to from TCB (which is also doing £95 cashback on it, or £80 cashback for the deal mentioned in OP).

Annoyingly I signed up yesterday for the Unlimited Fibre Extra deal on the 18 month contract offer, as it was shown as coming to an end that day. I would have preferred to wait until today and only be locked in for 12 months if I had known they would do it.

Only 2Mbps upload speed on the 40/2 package - if you don't want 80/20 then you might be better off looking at 55/10 package from BT and others.
I got the BT fiibre so there's always next year

Why not just cancel it, and sign for this deal? You have 14 days

It seems that you just have to hop between providers for the best deals, as they never seem to want to give existing customers offers that are as good.

My switch is going in the opposite direction to you, as the best they would offer was £28.99 for 12 months to stay on Sky Fibre Unlimited (so a £10 per month discount to stay on what I was already on), or £43.99 (their normal pricing) for 18 months if I wanted Fibre Max!

The deal that Sky are doing for the Max at £35 for 18 months that's available for existing customers too only applies to those not already on Sky Fibre at all apparently.

From what I gathered of the terms when I signed up, they would still charge the (previously waived) £25 activation fee if I did that.

Plus I'd rather not bother with the hassle of going through the process again.
I cancelled my Plusnet order yesterday and signed up for Talktalk to get sky sports for an extra £8.50 per month. Monthly cost is £35. In addition I went through TopCashback and triggered the £100 cash back. I've read that Talktalk isn't that good in terms of customer service- hopefully I won't have to contact them.

I've done exactly the same thing so a bit annoyed now

I just bought a new build and was told it had some fancy internet. Turns out it's called FTTH Fibre to the home. But it means essentially the only provider I can use is BT as the other big hitters don't service it. (There are other niche providers but their prices are rubbish!) Plusnet told me they can't due to the infrastructure and Sky said my property wasn't on their systems which apparently use the BT postcode system.

Anyone have experience on this issue?

Been in the same boat the past couple of years, but when my contract runs out there's never been anything great to move to so have always taken the £10 fibre plus line rental for 40/10 package, plus I've always been happy with the speeds and reliability. Although recently I seemed to be capped at 10 meg speeds when using torrent/p2p at peak times. I'm not sure I'd want to lose 8 meg upload speed for a £4pm saving though
A good deal, just gone for it.

You have 14 days to cancel your contract and then you can just sign up again.

they haven't for a long time, otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to call it unlimited. even the prioritization has been removed.
this has a 2mb upload speed, which may put some people off.

300MBps for £60 a month. I'd never need that although it would be nice to have an advantage in COD I suppose! Too old to play twitch shooters these days.

Being using them since February and no issues at all, not noticed any traffic shaping at all.
Downloaded 76gb last month and currently at 110gb so I could be classed a heavy user.

Great deal if it's indeed Fibre & unlimited - I renewed at £28.99 for the same with Sky as an existing customer.

What download & upload speeds do you get if tested via speedtest.net/?

I've never had any trouble with TalkTalk Customer Service. Been with them for years. Whenever contract is up I've always managed to negotiate and reduce any increases. You also get a free mobile SIM card with 500mb 200mins and lots of texts too. I know it's not a lot but it's good to pop into a spare phone.

Was paying £55 per month with BT for Infinity 2 Broadband, telephone and call package. I was supposed to get up to 76 Mbps download. I rang them for a better deal and was told the max speed I could get in my area was 58 Mbps! The best they could offer was £52 .99 even though I pointed out that their own company could offer me this package plus £8 calling plan for £32.99.
Have switched to Plusnet saving me £20 per month as my speed checks showed an average download speed of 42 Mbps

What is this free SIM that you speak of? Never seen it mentioned in my account portal.

Never had any real issue with Plusnet either in over 10 years.

I do get the occasional disconnect, but I think that is my Fritz!Box having a hissyfit when too many devices are connected.

Not any more for the latter, as Ofcom changed the rules in Jan2014 - if there are price increases, they have to give 30 days notice, within which a subscriber can exit a contract without penalty (i.e. exit fees) even if not completed in full -

According to a post on the Plusnet Forums, they had an issue with the system they use which has now been resolved, and escalating it with the cashback site used should mean it tracks correctly.

There are more posts from people on Plusnet's forums who have had the process expedited on Plusnet's side too.

If you already pre-agreed to a contract price increase - for example 9 months at X/month, then 3 months at Y/month - then what I said wouldn't apply to you.

For any other price increase, you are entitled to terminate your contract early without penalty within 30 days as the ofcom rules state.

Strange one, unless you live in the middle of nowhere. Who's your current ISP & what product + speed are you getting?
Nice deal, I just managed to get Sky Fibre Unlimited (pretty much same speed & useage) for £21/mo for 18 months.....see ya BT!
