PlusNet UK Prep Product Refresh and Half Price Fibre


[link to this post]
 
http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2014/05/plusnet...

Internet provider PlusNet has cut the cost of its superfast ‘Unlimited Fibre Broadband and Calls’ (FTTC) package in half from £19.99 to just £9.99 a month for the first 6 months of service. Meanwhile there are also plans for another rise in the cost of line rental and a product refresh to simplify their packages.

Firstly, effective from later today, PlusNet’s Unlimited Fibre Broadband and Calls bundle, which also requires customers to take the ISPs Phone Line Rental from the equivalent of £10.99 per month (when pre-paid 12 months in advance) or £14.50 as a standard monthly charge, will see its price cut in half.

Take note that an Anytime UK Calls option can also be added for an extra +£5 a month (includes 25% off top international call destinations) or +£7 per month if you want to add 300 anytime minutes to the top 35 international destinations.

Going forward PlusNet also plans to simplify their existing product line-up, from 10th June 2014, by removing the old usage-capped packages and replacing them with three unlimited options. The new line-up will include the existing unlimited options at the current price but also add a new unlimited service for their 38Mbps FTTC service at the slightly cheaper (-£1) cost of £14.99 (currently this is only offered alongside a usage cap of 40GB). Similarly the 10GB standard broadband package will also be removed. On top of that both of the fibre services will include free Evening as well as Weekend calls again.

Unfortunately there will be a few negative changes coming next month too and one of them is predictably routine, with Line Rental set to rise from £14.50 to £15.95. Similarly the pre-paid Line Rental Saver discount will rise at an even sharper rate from the monthly equivalent of £10.99 to £12.99 (£155.88 total for 12 months). Furthermore call setup fees will be 15.5p and calls to 01,02,03 and non-geo numbers (0845/0870) will rise to 9p per minute.

In fairness this will merely bring PlusNet into line with the rest of the mainstream market, which was an inevitable change. One other change of note is with the +£5 Anytime calls add-on, which will no longer include the 25% discount off top international call destinations.

Didn't think to post the whole thing here, but saw it a few hours ago and went off to check. At least reading it a second time, I spotted why the price had not yet changed smile

Good to see, and not too long to wait!

Unlimited on up to 38 Mbps is something which will be of interest to me.

My line rental remain the same price cos I signed 24 months contract back in April at £14.50 - so if they push the price up in June and I had the RIGHTS to move line rental to other provider under OFCOM ruling (any prices increase in the middle of agreement contract is allow to leave without any penalty charge) but the real problem is broadband price will increasing without phone line at the same isp is really annoying.

From 10th June 2014, the following changes will apply to new customers and existing 'Broadband only' customers who add phone on or after that date.

@ adslmax

I signed up for line rental about the same time. Hadn't thought about the OFCOM ruling so fingers crossed, I should be fine too smile Really couldn't be bothered with the hassle of moving again anyhow!!

Plusnet had confirmed me: The price increases will come into effect for new customers signing up from 10th June. Customers signing-up before this date will get the current pricing advertised. This will be part of a wider product refresh of which further information will be available in June.

So, I won't be affecting. Well done Plusnet smile
