Plusnet fibre without line rental?


[link to this post]
 
HI I'm in the process of leaving Be and thinking of signing up with Plusnet for Fibre BB but my line rental is with Zen and I would like to leave it there. From the sign up page it looks like you have to take out line rental with PN as well unless you are with BT, but I have read otherwise?

Does anyone know if it is possible to get Fibre from PN but have ones line elsewhere?

many thanks

Line used to be needed to be taken with copper BB, but it seems there is a line and non-line price for fibre (Low cost areas only).

Yes, as long as your landline is BT WLR, which it will be with Zen.

You need to apply on the Broadband Only tab where it says "You'll need to pay line rental to Plusnet or another BT based (i.e. WLR not BT Retail) landline provider to get our broadband".

The others are right, but it may help you to know I am on PN FTTC with BT Retail phone line rental and calls.

Signing up now, you would end up paying more for the broadband that if you had PN Home Phone as well. But your phone stuff from Zen is (I think) far cheaper that PN Home Phone. You would also have a connection charge for the FTTC.

I'll leave you to do the sums smile.
