Madasafish belongs to Plusnet and is fairly closely but not entirely integrated.
i know that, my mates bill for Mad as a fish have plusnet on it and i knew ages that Brightview became part of plusnet/BT. My mate been with MAAF since the Free net names days, I was with them for a while in dial up days.
My mate was looking to see if MAAF offered fibre, but they don't.
Neither is at all integrated with BT. Please stop spouting that rubbish. Plusnet is not "just BT with a different name".
Still owned by them, still Bt [censored].
He didn't need to change his phone to Plusnet. Fom the amount of reading and posting you do on here you ought to know that by now. When advising people, which you often do, it rather screws them when you tell them things that are manifestly untrue, or in the case of your friend you omit telling him something highly relevant such as his misunderstanding of the Plusnet products.
We both looked on Plusnet and while he could get ADSL without a phone service we could not see FTTc without a phone service.
I will look again and see as I think he would prefer to stay with the plusnet/MAAF as long as the price is right for the service he gets.
With all the complaining he does about MAAF i have no idea why he wants to stay with them, but such is life. But then he hates BT as well and still thinking of going with them.
He will stay as he is until FTTC is available.
Anyway, Bt open reach is still falsely advertising a service that is not available.
ok, i just had another look and you are right,FTTC is available from plusnet without the phone service. i will send my mate the link. Just under £20 here, i done a check using my postcode as fibre is available here and since he still lives in the same town it will be just under £20 for him as well, less than what he is paying with MAAF.
i can't use my phone number as it is VoIP only.
