For everyone who complains I suspect there are thousands who are satisfied with their ISP service. I am perplexed by some posters complaining that they get only 78Mb instead of their expected 80Mb, while others boast about downloading 30Gb in one night Ė we wouldn't use that in a month. Fair enough, but again the majority of people may not be so demanding.
We ourselves need reliable and secure BB for banking, Govt agencies such as income tax, car tax and MoT, occasional catchup TV, and internet research. We prefer a landline phone as mobile signal can be dodgy at times. For the past four years PN has provided our ADSL2 package with unlimited phone calls for about £28 per month which we think is good value. Maybe we're lucky but we have never had an outage.
I didn't bother with Plusnet's email because it requires the longwinded address [myname]@[myPNusername].plus.com
compared with [name]@fastmail.com
as suggested on this forum. Again as suggested, this gives independent mail if one wants to change ISP.
As to the PN forum, voluntary moderators do their best but it's a thankless task especially when the nitpickers come online. I think these mods do a pretty good job Ė as they do on TBB -- and console them with the thought that nobody can please all the people all the time.
