UK ISP PlusNet Launches 76Mbps FTTC Superfast Broadband Package

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012 (3:43 pm) - Score 1,532

Budget internet and phone provider PlusNet has today launched two new superfast broadband (FTTC) packages, which offer internet download speeds of up to 76Mbps alongside a bigger usage allowance of 250GB (GigaBytes), free installation and UK calls. Prices start at just £19.99 a month.

The new Extra Fibre package replaces the older ‘up to 38Mbps’ product of the same name, although its slower and cheaper ‘Fibre’ bundles have not been changed. In addition customers of the new Extra Fibre service will also benefit from faster upload speeds of up to 19.5Mbps.

Plusnets Fibre

• Up to 38Mb/s speeds (9.5Mbps uploads)
• 40GB usage allowance (Unlimited between midnight and 8am)
• Free wireless router
• Free install (saves £50)
• 18 month contract
• Yorkshire-based call centre

PRICE: £16.49 a month (Standalone or with FREE Evening & Weekends UK calls)
PRICE: £19.99 a month (FREE Anytime UK calls)

Plusnets Extra Fibre

• Up to 76Mb/s speeds (19.5Mbps uploads)
• 250GB usage allowance (Unlimited between midnight and 8am)
• Free wireless router
• Free install (saves £50)
• 18 month contract
• Yorkshire-based call centre
• Free McAfee security

PRICE: £19.99 a month (Standalone or with FREE Evening & Weekends UK calls)
PRICE: £23.49 a month (FREE Anytime UK calls)

As usual customers that want the free installation and calls offer will also need to take PlusNet’s Line Rental service from £9.49 a month on top of your broadband charge. A small number of eligible customers will also have to pay £26.49 a month for the “Extra Fibre” broadband instead of £19.99, which occurs if they live outside of the ISPs “low cost area” (i.e. the last 10% of UK rural areas, most of which can’t get FTTC yet anyway).

    Pretty good deal with Plusnet Extra Fibre standalone @ £19.99 a month with 250GB a month.

    I prefer faster upload rather than Virgin Media restrict to 5Mbps upload.

      Sadly FTTC not yet at my exchange. Come on BTW – get your finger out!

    Hi Mark,

    The market 1 price is £26.49 rather than £22.99.

    Rgds,

    Bob.

    About time Plusnet offered a sensible data allowance for a superfast product.

    1. Avatar Phil says:

      Yep totally agreed! 250GB is the best offer!

    I’ll probably be in the market for FTTC this year and don’t think I could ever go back to a traffic shaped service like Plusnet.

    1. Avatar Phil says:

      the traffic shaping is lots better than before, I had no complaints!

  5. Great news for areas that are lucky enough to have superfast fibre broadband. Tavistock has minusnet available…

    1. Avatar Somerset says:

      If Tavistock is not on the Openreach list then it will get BDUK finding.

  6. Thanks for your interest in Tavistock, Somerset. BDUK does not work like that, the approved plan to April 2015 is already there without Tavistock. Obviously I would like to see BT Openreach ‘pick’ Tavistock before then. This was no doubt the view of the Connecting Devon & Somerset consultants that Tavistock would be included. But that view could have been swayed by the BDUK/Local Authority funding available.

    As the 2.5 Billion BT Investment runs down, the chance for Tavistock to be included runs out.

    1. Avatar Somerset says:

      The map on the D&S website shows the white areas which includes Tavistock.
