Looking at above, most seem to be for fibre and 18 month contracts.

I thought Now TV, were part of Sky, but their offer does appear onnthe Sky offers page.

I just want a basic adsl 12 month contract to replace my current Shell service.

Plusnet were doing one but that seems to be an 18 month contract now, so the £50 card is worth a third less.

Any idea if Sky, Now TV or Plusnet are planning any basic offers? The basic service from Shell is OK, but like most of these communications companys actually communicating with them is a nightmre.

Plusnet still seem to be having problems with their website and ignore my emails, so Sky/Now TV is my preferred supplier based on previous contracts.

Plusnet flips between 12 and 18 month

NOWTV is essentially Sky but a different brand,

Errrmmm? wink

Similarly, Plusnet are part of BT. EE are part of BT. Smarty is part of Three.

AEG is part of Electrolux. Zanussi is part of Electrolux.

Persil in the UK is part of Unilever. (Though the brand name belongs to Henkel).

Why don't you go for the NowTV ADSL2+ deal for £18 per month, 12 month contract?

Includes anytime UK landline calls and SkyWifi hotspot access. I don't think you'll find anything much cheaper, especially with calls included.

These days since Vodafone entered the market, FTTC is often not much more expensive than ADSL which benefits those close enough to a cabinet to get a good signal.

Yes: looks the best deal ATM, but I don't use the phone, so I'd prefer a 12 month Plusnet contract, if they do one soon and they sort their website out. wink

What's wrong with the Plusnet web site other than none of the offers today including a prepaid credit card?

I don't think the OP can make the links work properly. I 'm not sure where it fails, but I just had a quick play and got through to the checkout page without any problems.

To the OP, not sure if plusnet will go back to 12 month contracts, most providers seem to be drifting the other way. NowTV are one of the few large providers that offer 12 month contracts with low/zero up front cost. I think plusnet are still doing the £50 reward cards on the £17.99 ADSL deal, but it's 18 month. You pays your money, and you takes your choice!

If you can't get the links to work, I would turn off adblocking and/or try another browser?

edit: Cross posted with you hk11. Is it worth trying another device?

Quite possibly because the web page no longer exists. What do you see if you go direct to the Plusnet site rather than use a third party link?
