ISP PlusNet Tweaks UK Business Broadband and Phone Price Discounts

Friday, July 11th, 2014 (1:52 am) - Score 531
plusnet uk

After reducing the prices for their residential customers (here) it’s little surprise to find that PlusNet Business will today also tweak the cost of their broadband and phone bundles for business customers, which will be available to those who sign up for a 24 month contract (note: business prices are +vat).

The new offers will be available to order until 7th September 2014 and as usual customers will also need to pay £10.50 per month for Line Rental on top of the broadband package price below. Otherwise all packages include a free wireless router (Technicolor 582n), unlimited email, UK based 24/7 customer support, one or more website domains and at least 250MB of webspace. A Static IP address can also be requested.

Business Broadband and phone
* Download speeds of up to 17Mbps (Typical)
* 25GB usage allowance (unlimited overnight usage)

Price: £4 +vat for 12 months (£8 thereafter)

Unlimited Business Broadband and phone
* Download speeds of up to 17Mbps (Typical)
* Unlimited usage allowance

Price: £6+vat for 12 months (£13 thereafter)

Business Fibre Broadband and phone
* Download speeds of up to 76Mbps (Typical)
* 50GB usage allowance (unlimited overnight usage)

Price: £10 +vat for 12 months (£23 thereafter)

Unlimited Business Fibre Broadband and phone
* Download speeds of up to 76Mbps (Typical)
* Unlimited usage allowance

Price: £15 +vat for 12 months (£33 thereafter)

In case you’re wondering why we used the word “tweaked” instead of reduced, that’s because these are effectively the same offers that have been running since May 2014 but with a few small changes. For example, both of the standard broadband (ADSL) packages use to have a discount period that was -£1 per month less than above, while the fibre (FTTC) packages use to be +£1 more expensive. In other words, the fibre packages are now a bit cheaper but the standard broadband has actually become more expensive.

At the time of writing PlusNet hadn’t yet updated their website to reflect the new offers.

    With these prices so low they cannot be making a profit so does this mean Plusnet will be making some redundant?

    Would seem this will be the only route to make the beans add up or perhaps offshore support?

    Would be interesting to see how many start to have speed issues at peak periods when the pack them in stack them high low prices hit saturation.

      They recently opened a new CS centre in the UK so I don’t think they have plans for redundancies or offshoring. You can check their network activity here –

      Seems an overly negative comment – there’s no mention of included calls in this article (which may prove very lucrative, depending on how they compare with other firms), and few business users will be active during ‘peak’ hours (for residential usage, from 1800-2200 are ‘peak’).

      I have fewer doubts about Plus.Net Business (with a dedicated support team separate from the regular CS and any delays currently being experienced) when compared with TalkTalk Business, or Primus Business (Primus apparently using TalkTalk anyway)… Any other ‘budget’ priced business ISPs you can compare with? I cannot think of any, but I’m also not convinced that one needs to pay double or treble the amount charged by PN for good service – AAISP and Zen may be much more costly, but are they really much better (rhetorical question, not comparable really).

      Do you know how much BT Wholesale are charging Plusnet?

    @Bob, Yes I know they opened a new CS centre but these prices are not workable something has to go, network activity will not cover pending redundancies.

    I have a few on my MSN who are CS support staff for plusnet I would ask about redundancies if they were online just recently they never seem to be onine, so read between the lines below cost charges for BB and line something has to go.

    Plusnet, which currently employs about 850 staff, expects to have 1,100 employees across its Leeds and Sheffield sites by 2016.

    Still long way to go but reduced prices price on both residential and business is more worrying now because Plusnet will not getting any profits and could one day gone bust! Only time will tell.

      That was November 2013 before this last lot of price drops, figures don’t add up some where something has to change..

      All I say is best to watch Plusnet carefully changes will come has too..

      Don’t forget they’ve bumped up the cost of line rental considerably to basically match their parent company pricing. Several months ago plus.net line rental was among the lowest, it’s now near the highest.

      Everyone seems to be competing on broadband price while charging the maximum for the line rental aspect of the service.
