Upgrading from standard broadband to fibre (Plusnet)


[link to this post]
 
Hello

I would be grateful for any advice. I am currently with Plusnet on their £9.99 per month standard broadband package. I am with BT for my phone calls.

I am considering upgrading to the Plusnet Unlimited fibre package (3a8MB - http://www.plus.net/home-broadband/fibre/broadband-o... and keeping my phone package with BT.

I read a review for Plusnet fibre which says that line rental is charged whether you take the phone package or not... "This package can come with or without a call plan, which is great, but either way you have to pay the £15.95 line rental."

This confused me a little - because I presume this means there is line rental on the fibre connection?

I just wanted to confirm - if I take on the Plusnet fibre option - I would only pay the £17.49 per month to Plusnet?
and then continue paying line rental to BT - and not Plusnet?

Sorry if my question is basic...any advice is appreciated.

You are right. The review is badly worded, that's all. You have to pay line rental somewhere, but not necessarily to Plusnet.

I'm on Plusnet FTTC and my line is still with BT, which is what you want. But!!!

If you don't take Plusnet line rental then they charge a £50 FTTC setup fee.

Many thanks for this - very helpful.

I have just signed up for their 40Mb fibre service.
