Upgrading to Fibre - pricing?


[link to this post]
 
Morning all!!

My father in law now has a fibre cab at the bottom of his street (just 20 metres away!!!).

I can't really find much info on upgrading from PlusNet unlimited to Fibre. Anyone know how much (if anything) it is to upgrade?

Thanks

First thing is don't do it via the update process on the Member Centre
Call Customer Options on Cancellations to get the best deal you can

It might be an idea to see what deals are available to new customers before you do this.

Thanks for the replies so far.

@RobertoS No his line rental is still with BT as far as I know.

That makes a difference to the monthly broadband cost on new contracts, and also there is a setup cost if not taking PN line rental.

Best to bring line rental over to Plusnet when u call up customer service and ask to put through to special deal offer for new customer and remember they only offer a great deal if u bring line rental with fibre with PN.

That's why I move my line rental over to PN from Zen along with my PN Fibre.

HI, I'd be interested to know what you got offered.

I'm in the same boat, 6 months into a 12 month contract. FTTC just been enabled. My line rental is with the post office pre paid 6 months left. Market 1 exchange.

I rang to see if they could offer a deal as it would be cheaper for me to migrate to BT, lose the prepaid line rental and pay plusnet the early termination fee than upgrade with plusnet, particularly when you can get 110 quid cashback on top.

Basically, they offered nothing on fibre broadband (80/20) only £30/month, £25 install (same as website),
They emailed an offer for broadband plus phone, that works out more expensive than the prices on the website ! (yes I did use the non low cost area prices) and they wanted 24 month contract.

Has anyone had a 80/20 broadband only offer?

Thanks,

The PlusNet web site gives a price of £22.49 for broadband only and £19.99 when taken with phone... I am also on PlusNet on a Market 1 exchange and should be getting Fibre enabled next year, I always assumed once on Fibre I would get the same prices as everyone else or is it more expensive in a Market 1 area like it is with ADSL Max ??

I'm afraid it's £7pm or £7.50pm more.

Click the "Here's the legal bit" near the bottom of this page. There's an early part that talks about £7, and near the end £7.50. I'm too tired to work out if that difference is correct, or a mistake.
