PlusNet Calls for More UK Customers to Join its 80Mbps Broadband Trial

Monday, Mar 12th, 2012 (7:37 am) - Score 732

UK ISP PlusNet has said that there are still “plenty of spaces open” on its trial of up to 80Mbps (Megabits per second) Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) broadband technology, which was made available to all residential subscribers last month (currently 100 staff and customers are taking part). Results so far are said to have been “very positive“.

A number of other providers, such as AAISP and Timico (among others), are also running trials of the 80Mbps FTTC upgrade (prior to this the download speeds on FTTC would have topped out at around 40Mbps).

PlusNets 80Mbps Trial Update

The 80/20 trial is open to anyone that currently has FTTC and is on Value Fibre or Extra Fibre and the trial will be free of charge until we launch an 80/20 product (you’d just pay your normal subscription fee and any usage/other charges). At the end of the trial people on the trial will be able to move to whatever 80/20 product we launch and pay whatever the fee is for that product or switch back to the up to 40Mbps product for free and continue to pay the same as today.

We have a limited number of routers available for testing, these are free and yours to keep regardless of whether you stay on 80/20 or not at the end of the trial.

The trials of BTOpenreach’s latest FTTC upgrade are due to come to an end this Spring, prior to their official commercial launch. Customers whom wish to take part should visit the ISPs trial site: http://trials.plus.net .
