Potential new user in ADSL Max area


[link to this post]
 
I have a neighbour who is interested in getting broadband. We are in an ADSL Max area with no LLU. I've seen the offer of 12 months free broadband subject to the phone line being with Plusnet but after that it's £17.99 per month and is uncapped. She doesn't need this but I can't find any chepear, capped, deals. They all seem to be aimed at lucky fibre households.

The obvious answer is to take the 12 month deal and then negotiate/move at the end of it

Plusnet deals are typically 18 months minimum contract period. If that is the case, the user would have to spend some time at full price once the free period expires before they can negotiate.

In reply to a post by Oldjim:

The original poster did not give the minimum contract period of the deal, just the length of the free period.

Some deals, including some Plusnet deals, have a discount that does not last the entire minimum contract period. It's important to keep the minimum contract period in mind when considering your options.

The poster didn't but a simple check of the current offer would have shown it as being 12 months contract which has been the case for most of the ADSL offers recently
Of course you could just have looked at the sticky at the top of this board

Indeed.

I'm thinking that now I seem to have tracked my troubles with the service down to my router beginning to die, and my computer frequently going very slow or hanging to NetWorx, (which complicated my thought processes given the Plusnet troubles I don't think I suffer from to any worrying degree,) it may be time to seek a retention deal!
