Primus Saver UK Offer 40GB Usage on its £1.20 Broadband and Calls Deal

Monday, April 15th, 2013 (3:24 am) - Score 1,152

One of the cheapest internet providers in the market, Primus Saver, will today move to make its £1.20 a month broadband and calls bundle even more attractive by increasing the default usage allowance from 20GB (GigaBytes) to 40GB. A free connection and free router are also included.

The special Spring Upgrade offer, which will be available on orders placed between now and April 30th 2013, must be redeemed during the sale through Primus Saver’s online sign-up process by using the code “UPGRADE40” (without speech marks).

Primus Savers Spring Upgrade £1.20 Bundle
* Typical download speeds of up to 15Mbps (24Mbps ADSL2+ tech)
* Free evening and weekend UK calls
* 20 40 GigaByte usage allowance (Fair Usage Policy)
* UK based customer service
* Free Wireless Router
* Free Activation
* Free Technical Support
* 12 Month Contract

Customers are also required to take Primus’s own line rental service alongside the bundle, which costs from £10 a month if paid 12 months in advance or £13.99 if paid monthly. Any data usage above the 40GB allowance will cost £2.00 per GB and there’s also a one-off £4.95 router postage & packaging fee to pay.

It should also be noted that the above only applies if you pay by Direct Debit and other payment methods will cost an extra £2 per month. Similarly customers who prefer to receive a paper bill are also charged an additional £2 per month.

As usual it’s important to stress that the less you pay the less the ISP has to invest in a good quality of service and support, so don’t expect a lot if you only pay a little.

    just a FYI, they resell talktalk (Or use wholesale etc)

    Been with them for a month or two had to get line tweaked to get max speeds. but all in all good.

    Was getting 14Mbps down (Sync) and around 12Mbps throughput

    Now

    around 19.6Mbps Down (Sync) And around 17.4Mbps throughput

    1. Phil says:

      tweaking snr is not a good idea, cos u will getting lots of errors on the line and DLM will see loads of errors and will reset to higher SNR even at 18dB max and reduced your sync rate. I would kept an eyes on the number of errors on the line!

    2. DanielM says:

      Not much of a problem in my case.

    3. DanielM says:

      Think over a week i had about 850 Error seconds. which may seem high but not too bad.

  2. Phil says:

    Mine is zero error seconds for a month with default SNR of 6dB. Getting sync of 18Meg and throughput 16 Meg.

    1. DanielM says:

      What is your line length? (Attenuation)

  3. Phil says:

    29.5dB

    1. DanielM says:

      Quite high then, mine’s 21 & 22.5

  4. Phil says:

    Yeah I can tweak snr to 2dB and get sync of 19Meg and Throughput of 17Meg but it getting too many errors on the line 115 errors in 24 hours. Too much. 6dB with 16 Meg throughput speed is more than enough for my ADSL2+. As BT estimated my line only do 11.5Meg.

    1. DanielM says:

      Am actually on 2.4dB on my first line and 3 on my second. (as of today)

      and have yet to see any errors. I think its purely based on line conditions rather than general figures.

  5. Mark Jackson says:

    I once had to manual tweak SNR just to make my line run slower as it was running faster than the copper could handle and the ISPs profile system didn’t seem able to adjust.

    1. DanielM says:

      Wow that would be interesting speaking to a isp about

      HELP! my internet is too fast, lol

  6. onephat says:

    How do you manually tweek it?

    1. Mark Jackson says:

      It only works on certain routers, such as a few older NetGear’s, those with custom firmware and some others. You’d then have to Telnet in and use a setting line like ‘adslctl configure –snr 150’ (varies).

    2. Phil says:

      DMT Tool or routerstats or manual via Netgear as telnet enabled, just like what Mark J say above
