The first thing to check is what speeds you might get. I assume your phone is on VM Cable as well as the broadband.
If it is, then take the Address option from this page
. Do not
use the postcode option!
If it isn't, then use the phone number entry on the page, as that is the best checker.
It would be best if you just copy and paste the table of results and the line immediately above the table
, editing out the phone number or address of course
The FTTC service from any supplier could be less solid than a good VM cable connection, but far better than a poor VM one. Having said that, with a good connection speed with Plusnet you should be fine, barring line faults that would involve Openreach. (With any FTTC ISP).
Plusnet phone support for normal user questions is fine. For hairy stuff the Community Forum or here is better - the same (excellent) Digital Care
reps are on both, with the Community one taking priority of course.
On FTTC exchange congestion is highly unlikely. BT Wholesale capacity has been hugely increased throughout the network. On a few London exchanges there can be limited availability of FTTC due to high demand. The exchange given by checker I gave will be useful information.
For wired use the (optional) Plusnet router is fine, though it is an entry-level one wrt GUI facilities. The wireless can be a bit weak, depending on the building type and location wrt the user kit.
Yes, completely unlimited. No tricks or small print.
