Just signed up

Just signed up with Plusnet for ADSL and phone this evening a few hours before the half price BB ends (+£20 Quidco which seemed to track OK).

I chose a username during signup, which works OK in the Member Centre. I see I now seem to have username@plusdsl.net as Broadband username. I didn't set up a plusnet email address during the sign up process, but is that Broadband username it?

I provided the MAC code from o2 that I requested and got today and chose 2 Aug as migration day. I also chose to pay initial payment by DD so that should add the right amount of time for the date I chose.

I'm new to migration, with o2 being by only BB since 2008 so forgive the silly questions, even though I'm far from new here on TBB!

My PN email address, (never used), appears to be username@username.plus.com crazy

Don't bank on that 2 August date until you get an email or text telling you what date Openreach has scheduled. My guess is that the available list seems to come from Openreach overnight, so by the time you choose one someone somewhere, on any ISP, may already have got that slot at your exchange.

I think the present one is first name@username.plus.com but if you didn't say you wanted one there may not be one set up
But once you have joined you can go the the email setup and add whatever email address you want in the form anyname@username.plus.com

OK I know what username@plusdsl.net is now. It's the name used to log on to the router when it comes.

Email addresses with Plusnet are like many things ... totally off the wall! However many email addresses you add, your original one is always tagged onth the end and cannot be hidden.

Not quite. It's the username to get internet connectivity. But if you are going to use the PlusNet supplied TG582n then you don't even do that. It sets itself up automatically.

It comes with a very good little booklet telling you what to do. Plus a "credit card" type card with the wireless connection details and the password to log into the router if you need to.
