Basically, in my case, £1.50 monthly reduction for increased upload and download speed (well not actually in my case as I'm on the trial) and more than doubled usage allowance.

These look much better than before, quite surprised with the 250GB limit if I'm honest!

I haven't seen any mention of traffic management, has anything changed in that area?

It's the same as the 120GB product that preceded it.

Dangerously close to being a killer product at the price. Cue Plusnet bashers ...

Yes, I have been away from here since my previous post, and just looked at the website. Not looked at the Community link yet.

I thought the new Extra was cheaper than the old, and you've just confirmed it. Has to be worth considering at £3.50, though really I don't need it. 40/10 is fine technically. But, having been on the trial ....

Rgds,
Bob????

Am I missing something, but on this page there's no mention of the allowances. Only on the bundle pages.

There's also a few things wrong on the expanded pricing details on that page.

For example Value (low cost) >> Value Fibre (low cost) is £10, but Extra (low cost) >> Extra Fibre (low cost), is £8.50. So the closing sentence should say "from £8.50".

All low cost >> standard prices are "+£6.50" except Fibre Extra where it is "+£5.50". Is that intentional or an arithmetical error? If it is an error, then the "from £10" would be "from £9.50".

Yes there is, in great big numbers, 40GB and 250GB!

It actually seems incongruous that they haven't increased the Value Fibre allowance from 40GB.
