We don't download a massive amount a month, think we normally average around 50 gb of usage.
Phone line hardly gets used just had to be taken to have the fibre.
You didn't have to take Plusnet phone line to get fibre, but they would have charged a setup fee and £2.50pm more.
What you could do if you wish to save money is switch your phone to Pulse8broadband
, which is what I did for a while when on Plusnet. Make sure you click the Home tab on that page as I expect it will open on the Business one.
I pay £13 line rental plus £1 for caller display. Calls are dirt cheap at 1ppm with no call setup charge, and per-second billing. 0.8ppm in off-peak.
Plusnet will increase your monthly charge by £2.50 but that is more than offset by the saving. Particularly if you are paying for a Plusnet call plan. Or even if not, as your few phone calls will come to a few pence per month. They may start you on another 18-month term, but I don't think so.
As has been suggested you could also drop down to 40/2 fibre to save money. That upstream may be a drag if you upload a lot of photographs or backups. It is almost certain that would start a new 18 months
I chose to go to AAISP Home::1 80/20, ending up on a total of approximately what I used to pay when on Plusnet 80/20 + BT line. No problems so far, but I didn't have many on Plusnet. I was just worried about the apparent degrading of the support service and how that might affect me if I had one with them.
I could easily manage on the AAISP Home::1 on 40/10 which is £35pm for 100GB. Six month minimum term. Phone still with Pulse8.
The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
