Re: Consider leaving plusnet


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
IIRC in the days of BT Centrals, Plusnet had no control over which Central you would end up on when you re-connected. Didn't they say BT Wholesale used a dumb round-robin system? Which is why if one went down PN had to boot people off a few to rebalance the system after it came back up.

An intelligent system would just have loaded the newly available one.

Similarly, I believe it isn't always the gateway giving the trouble now. It can be something in the path before them and hence before the gateway itself.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Yes I seem to recall that and IIRC when I was with madasafish in the Brightview days if browsing got sluggish it was common practise for those in the know to hop to another gateway to try and get an improvement.

You may want to go back to Plusnet.

Currently on unlimited 76Mb fibre with plusnet. I've been offered a retention deal of £10 per month for this. Am I likely to beat this anywhere else?


No 24 month contract either smile

What a load of rubbish whoever got this deal is untrue. Plusnet offers is always in a new 18 or 24 months contact. They will not do any deal for one month contact but they can do it but only at the standard price like £19.99 per month in lower price area!

As for £10 a month deal with Plusnet with no contract is loads of rubbish.

My guess is that the retention 'deal' will see him downgraded to 40/2.

Where does it say no long contract?
