Plusnet Extra Broadband


[link to this post]
 
Long time no post

I've been on Plusnet since around 2004, and I'm on the old £21.99 product where you get 20gb peak usage (4pm-midnight) although capped from 13gb, then effectively unlimited outside that time (at least I've never hit a limit)

In all this time I've only rarely gone above 60gb - therefore are there any disadvantages to changing over to this cheaper product? Are there any differences in terms of throttling over what I'm currently on (Broadband Premier IIRC)

Thanks

I shifted from Premier Option1 to Extra last month.

There's a slight difference in speeds at peak times, but it depends largely on the nature of what you are using the connection for.

Compare:

Premier Option 1

I forgot about that one. Much better.

For me the only real change is the 6pm to 10pm Youtube restriction. Not a massive thing usually. It would be great if they could drop it on Fridays and Weekends though.

Thanks for the replies much appreciated.

That throttling chart is useful
