new offer


[link to this post]
 
I had an email from Plusnet saying they are raising the price by a pound, so I will be paying £33 a month instead of £32 a month and then they say I can take them up on their offer of £27.50 a month, going up to £28.50 a month after 29th of june, i am not sure if Plusnet thinks that is a great deal, but i do not think it is that good really, since it will still be a 18 month contract.


i still think the now TV deal is better, £30 for up to 38Mb/s and now Tv entertainment, the problem is it is still sky.

Still need to think.

What product are you on? The "offer" is for the 40/2 service, so unless you are already on that, avoid!

From September 2001 on BTopenworld Home 500/Home 1000/Home 2000. Then ADSLMax on <n>ildram. Moved to ADSL2+ from ADSL24. I'm now with plusnet on FTTC since 28/05/2014 and loving it... I'm not saying who I work for. Any opinions expressed here are my own.

That is the point, my upload speed is around 7Mb/s and download around 32, so I certainly not on the 40/2, hang on I thought they got rid of the 40/2?

I can keep my weekend and evening calls if i stay as i am, not that I use the home phone. i expect I would lose that if I went into another contract.
even if i change to an other network i expect i would lose the higher upload.

It was 40/20 they scrapped. It was an Openreach 80/20 capped within the Plusnet system.

Plusnet's 40Mbps history is 40/2 > 40/10 > 40/20 (capped 80/20) > 40/2.

The only other ISP I'm aware of that provides 40/2 instead of 40/10 is TalkTalk Retail.

Why do you want Evenings and Weekends if you don't use the phone? Or is it free on a legacy product. Are you sure you still have it?

If you don't use the phone have a look at moving your line rental to someone that doesn't cross subsidise broadband to keep the headline price down by ripping people of with vastly overpriced line rental, extortionate per minute call charges (always rounded up) and totally unjustified call set-up fees!

Ah, i see. yes I remember now.


evening and weekend is from a legacy product, i presume they let me keep them to keep my custom when they changed from the 40/20.

I am thinking of looking to see if it would be cheaper to have broadband with one supplier and line rental with another, the problem is very few does broadband on its own. i know Plusnet does.

BT will, but not with any of the deals.

Aquiss I think. Uno probably. With both of them you may as well take their phone as long as you stay on BT Wholesale broadband.

IDNet too. AAISP but expensive if you want 1GB allowance.

Have to check with Matt but I think TTB "Fibre Pro 40/10 unmetered" or "Fibre+ Pro 80/20 unmetered" (both BB only) together with their SOHO BTw line rental might also be a possibility (although perhaps somewhat costly - yet with excellent support) if the exchange is enabled.

Never knew BT would, when a mate phoned up a couple of years back they said no, They will give you line rental separate, but they will not give you broadband separate.
anyway Bt is one of the most expensive providers out there.

I have not had time to look around at the moment, been trying to sort this computer out.
