I have looked at a few providers, Sky, plusnet and a couple of smaller ones, I even priced up TalkTalk, but I do not fancy Talk Talk to be honest even if it does work out cheaper than plusnet over 18 months.
so to Plusnet, i know a few people on Plusnet Fibre and while most of them seems to be ok with it, the service is not outstanding, which from where some of them are in relation to the cabinet it should be.
I know Plusnet use traffic management, which to be honest I am not fond of, but then again maybe if the network I am on used it then things would be better.
My main problem is filters, BT, sky, Talk Talk they all use these filters because our nanny state say they have to, I do not see them mentioned on plusnet site, so have Plusnet got away with not using them? I know they are not a large provider, but they are still owned by BT.
Second thing is, if I go through the ordering process, which I did to see what the prices was and what I got,, i am told i must pay p and p for a router i do not want,, I know it is only a few quid, but anyway to get away from having their awful router? I have my own which is far better than what they supply,.
My problem is that they want to charge £50 for a install as I do not have a phone line, most other providers wave that, certainly since i would be trapped in a 18 month contract anyway.
I am going to give my provider until the end of the weekend to sort things out, if they can't then i will have a look at my options.
At the moment money is a hit tight as i am on the sick for a few months, so chaging networks at this time is not ideal, but I need a constant speed, not super high speed, but at least around 10Mb/s
last of all, what are other peoples opinion of Plusnet? I scurried away from them pretty quick when they took over Metronet, I wanted nothing to do with them, but as i said I do know some peopel with them and they seem happy, apart from one.
