Plusnet Question


[link to this post]
 
Are Plusnet owned by TalkTalk or BT?

The reason why i ask is because i've just had some talktalk salesman at the door trying to flog me broadband and told me that TalkTalk have recently taken over Plusnet.

Thought soo, also had to laugh when he did a speed test said I could get up 8mb connection from my internet, when I know I can get 10mb speeds. When I told him this he said Plusnet only do up 8mb.

In the past they have been up to all sorts of tricks (allegedly) e.g. slamming

That's strange, I also had that from door to door saleman telling me that TalkTalk is now the owners of Plusnet plc.

Can plusnet staff is that true ? I think plusnet is still the owner by British Telecom.

Hi,

We're owned by BT Retail and have been for some time.

Unfortunately TalkTalk salespeople have been trying this tactic for a while. frown

If you have some details of the salesperson I'd appreciate you forwarding them to me.

The above post has been made by an ISP REPRESENTATIVE (although not necessarily the ISP being discussed in the post).

Of course there is always the possibility that CPW will take over BT tongue. But they haven't done so yet.

My domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost. Internet connection - O2 Standard.
