plusnet market A/B pricing how much and when?


[link to this post]
 
According the plusnet exchange search my local exchange will be on "Market B" from 2014, and with that I assume there will be a price drop, however their has been no announcement from pusnet and my broadband is still £18 per month, which after some research is significantly more than I Would be paying if I was to sign up with a LLU provider.
My line rental saver has also recently expired, so How much will plusnet be charging for broadband if/when the new pricing comes in, will it come in, or should i Jump ship now possibly to talk talk after almost 10 years on plusnet?

Depends on the deal Plusnet have with BT wholesale.

Without knowing the precise wording, it may be that it needs some renegotiating, rather than automatically adopting the yet to be properly released Market A/B lists from Ofcom

Ah. Yes, one of the ones that have got LLU since the 2010 classification. Annoying!

I see that that the Plusnet exchange status checker page states:-
Mkt2014 is the new market classification proposed in the Ofcom consultation paper Review of the wholesale broadband access markets published on 11/07/2013. This is given here for information only; there is no guarantee that Ofcom will adopt these classifications at the end of the consultation, and they might change any assigned values. Also how Plusnet will use them is to be announced

Don't worry about the stupid market classification.
Just phone PlusNet ask for retentions and say you could be better off on a LLU and that you are looking to get a even better deal from them.
You may be very surprised, recently they offered even existing customers on Market 1
two year deals at very low (for Market 1) price.
I snapped it up wink

When Samknows showed an LLU operator at my local exchange, I rang Plusnet and they reduced the price. I actually got quite a good deal which lasted until a year ago when the price was raised.
