I doubt it. My apologies.

I think I getting mixed up through tiredness. I was mistakenly thinking just now that you were currently with them and just wanting to get a new deal at the end of the minimum term.

The fact remains though that like many others I have no problem with the reduced link or the full one in Andrew's post, or reduced one on the tbb offers page. The reduced one taking a bit longer to load the target page, perhaps because of having to retrieve the full version.

No problem. I appreciate the suggestion. I've just tried it and get a new error, so maybe it is, but again you would think the error would be more helpful!

I've been unable to replicate the error you are getting with the affiliate link from Andrew's offers page, I can get right through to the checkout page.

When do you get the error, is it the first page you see after clicking through to plusnet? If it is, I would suspect some sort of device level tracking blocking as suggested earlier.

Varies based on what legal team has advised generally.

Things are often different for sites operating outside the EU, but serving people in the EU

The "more info" button works fine, but that is still on TBB site. wink

The "Order broadband now from Plusnet" button on the tbb site also works. At least, it takes me to Plusnet which then does the cookie request then asks for phone number and postcode. (Using iPad on iOS13.6).

]Does the OP have any third party filters added to the Safari browser? I also asked in the plusnet forum thread.

HTTP and HTTPS context switching for referrer's may have issues on the latest Safari, and MS Edge, and Firefox on desktops. HSTS might help, but generally switching mode is bad news.

Strangely I don't get any problems if I choose John Lewis Broadband which is supplied by/under contract with Plusnet.
