Nope, I think I'll stay on my measly 4 meg Sky unlimited and hold out for BT etc to offer it properly...

For example, it turns out they put you onto their ADSL package (and 18 month contract) first, then upgrade you to FTTP after a couple of weeks;

But Plusnet ADSL doesn't have an 18-month contract, it doesn't even have a 12-month contract!

If it IS available then BT could offer it too.

probably an error in their fantastic database !!

Hi,

At the moment we're still trialling FTTP, as such we've not set up the ability to signup direct to it via our website. This makes life a little complicated when someone who is a new customer rather than an existing customer wants to signup for FTTP as you have to signup for ADSL first and then add the FTTP trial afterwards.

You can though signup for a monthly rather than 12 month contract for ADSL, there's no minimum contract on the FTTP trial either (router and install are free on FTTP too, install usually take a couple of weeks). If the rate limits are an issue then we have a bolt on called Pro which removes them for an extra fiver per month.

Feel free to give me a shout if you've any questions or have a look at some of the posts from the customers already on the trial over on our forum.

I have been on FTTC with Plusnet since May 2011, but BT couldn't/wouldn't offer it to me until a couple of months ago.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your reply.
The usage limit is the key sticking point really as I manage a charity's website and email comms and do a lot of uploading of event photos to Flickr and downloading website backups etc so I think I'll easily exceed the cap.
The bolt-on certainly sounds like a deal changer - thanks for letting me know about this. smile

RE BT offering FTTP, I have been trying to get them to offer fibre of any kind for 18 months and gotten nowhere. Their call centre staff haven't got a [censored] clue, not blaming them but obviously the info they're being fed is useless.

Cheers!

Just to clarify in case there's any confusion the Pro Add on removes the throttling not the bandwidth (data) cap, which is 120GB on Plus Net Extra Fibre product, don't know about FTTP, but assume it's the same. Also usage between midnight and 8 am is unlimited.

This may also give you some useful info
