Are you saying that Plusnet keep trying to persuade you to pay the extra £5 for Pro? By what means? They have never hassled me for it.

Well I had TWO more emails yesterday alone! Part of one below. Offering line speed all day for an extra fiver is as I said, more about money that fair shares for all in my book.

Nor me. Maybe it's a newsletter subscription thing?

Fair enough, but I don't see it as a 'Special Offer or Promotion' and I am already aware of their services, so still am of the view that money takes priority over fair useability for all. But, it is no more shifty than marking a phone call of a few seconds as lasting one minute to disguise the fact thet per-second billing has gone out of the window. Not very "Honest" in my book.

I got the same emails, one to each of the email addresses that are registered with PN.

As I opted to receive this type of communication from them it doesn't worry me. In fact in the past I saved money by responding to a similar email!!!!

So when banks, credit card companies and utilities send you loads of offers for loans etc. that you do not want do you complain to them that you are aware of their services and do not want their dishonest offers, companys do this unless you opt out of their mailing systems.

I do not entertain walksort (junkmail), though I don't see that has the slightest to do with hiding the true length of a phone call, which is the only thing I have described as dishonest, but as usual, there is always a forum oik who will twist what has been said, just to be cantankerous. I will say no more and leave you to play with yourself.

For anyone thinking of taking out a PN phone package they make it clear on their website that:
All call charges are pence per minute and include VAT.

The reason I checked the billing details was my 12 month contract with BT ends next month and I'm looking around to see who else provides calls and line rental and at what cost.

It's just a pity they cannot follow the crowd and detail the actual call length for calls of less than a minute, instead of listing them all as exactly 1 minute duration. It makes listing them pointless as they are inaccurate, Users cannot relete to them and they may as well be grouped together as 'Calls under one minute' with a total charge.
