Metronet closing ?


[link to this post]
 
A friend of mine is on an old Metronet account and has had a phone call from Plusnet saying they are closing the Metronet account and offering to transfer to Plusnet (this is on a ADSLMax only exchange). Does anyone know if they would qualify for any good deals and if Plusnet would insist on a 12 or 18 month contract.

Their best bet would be to ring and speak to Plusnet and find out.

If he just moves to PN at the 'normal' prices it will likely be non-contract.

If however, he takes up an "offer" with reduced prices it will be on a contract, probably 18 Months.

Tell your friend when phoning PN to ask to speak to the Customer Options Team as they are able to "offer" possible discounts/deals.

While this is true, it WILL be on a contract, to not have a contract they would have to just 'brand migrate' on a normal non-contract basis and forego any possible discounts.

Exactly the same for me. Plusnet has changed the most in the years in between.

I left Metronet and moved to Bulldog which was the first big full LLU by C&W and it was good (8meg when BT did 2meg) but often a mess from customer support. smile

Ah yes, happy days ...... they got popular, got bought by Plusnet, and it turned sour very soon after.

What was the name of their Sys Admin who used to post on here ? Alex maybe ?
