It appears that any of Plusnet customers approaching the end of their contract or no longer in contract and connected to service other than 40/2 or 80/20 will become the target of these calls to move people off the higher 'wholesale' cost products.
I remember when the 40/20 product from Plusnet first became available, everyone flocked to it... hell if I was able to get FTTC at the time, I would of too! but it was also said to be a stupid idea from Plusnet's point of view based on them paying for 80/20 and reselling it at similar prices to 40/10!
The confusing part of this move though is that even if someone is prepared too pay extra to get the required product they still have to prove there line worthy of such a move...
I also get the feeling this may be a move to push people toward BT Infinity 1 when you consider the offers on that service being pretty constant since these changes.
This wasn't just a dumb move on the financial side, but it wasn't going to give optimum performance on those lines that weren't capable of much more than 40mbps where as the 40/10 product variant would have performed better,(less DLM intervention)
As for this 40/2 idea apart from copying the likes of Stalk talk i don't see the point why they didn't choose the 40/10 instead,
Also with the max upload being so low, it will be far to easy to saturate the connection, so another dumb move ,
