UK ISP PlusNet Offers Unlimited Broadband FREE for 12 Months

Low cost ISP PlusNet appears to have quietly begun offering 12 months of free unlimited broadband service and weekend calls (£9.99 per month thereafter), which could be seen as a move to balance against a similar promotion from Sky Broadband that surfaced just before the weekend.

The special discount will be available to order until the middle of next week and as usual customers will also have to take the ISPs Phone Line Rental service alongside, which costs from the equivalent of £12.99 per month when pre-paid in advance for a year or £15.95 if you prefer a standard monthly charge.

At present PlusNet has one of the cheapest line rental rates of all the big ISPs, although from September that price will be going up (here) and so the best way to save is to take the pre-paid line rental option as this will lock in that discount for a year.

Unlimited Broadband and Calls
* Download speeds of up to 17Mbps
* Upload speeds of up to 1Mbps
* Truly unlimited broadband
* Free UK weekend calls
* Free wireless router
* Free activation
* McAfee Internet security
* Parental controls
* 12 Month contract

PRICE: Free for the first 12 months (£9.99 thereafter) + line rental

Take note that some customers who live in remote rural areas may have to pay more due to residing outside of the ISPs “low cost area” (i.e. the standard price becomes a hefty £17.49 per month instead of £9.99). Elsewhere the providers superfast Unlimited Fibre Broadband (up to 38Mbps FTTC) service with included evening + weekend calls is currently still discounted to £5 per month for the first 6 months (£14.99 thereafter).

    Dear ispreview, do some research before copy and pasting an advert given to you buy someone from plusnet marketing..

    Then you will know plusnet have scrapped 24/7 support which you quoted in the article.


    • Nothing to do with PlusNet, entirely my mistake. Corrected.

      This seems to be happening more and more and often especially on news items relating to BT or its cast offs/organisations.

      Ive noticed a pattern over the past month or longer where a number of totally and utterly superfluous BT stories which have not even appeared on the other big ISP news related sites. Written as if its just taken word from some employee, submitted in some email i assume.

      How did Mark even quote 24/7 support in the first place when only 3 weeks ago he typed up a story http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2015/06/isp-plusnet-says-farewell-to-247-uk-based-telephone-support.html which mentioned that ceasing?

      No disrespect intended but if Mark is going to publish news items perhaps be a bit more selective in those you pick and choose and in that selection check out any overly long claims that stink of cut and paste drivel first.

    • Eh? I know some people like to troll but that was possibly one of the most bonkers posts I’ve read all month :), thanks for “contributing”. Normally I prefer to erase troll posts, but that one gave me a giggle.

      How on earth you extrapolate a tiny error and yet somehow turn it into a random conspiracy theory I don’t know. I just copied the package details from the last time PlusNet did a free service deal, but like other humans I am not perfect and sometimes do make mistakes.

      But look, we’ve been running for 16 years now, our history of coverage speaks for itself and needs no extra defence from me. So it’s simple.. if you don’t like what we do then do not visit anymore.

      PS – Don’t troll on here, it’s actually a rule now (see bottom). Don’t be “That Guy”.. nobody likes “That Guy”.

    Aren’t ADSL2+ support up to 21Mbps? Why is Plusnet advert Download speeds of up to 17Mbps?

    Strange, Origin Broadband have offered this for the past 3 months but there’s no mention there. I guess they don’t sponsor this site… seems to always promote plusnet,sky or talktalk >_>

    • Web Dude

      ‘sponsor’ the site ? AFAIK, there’s no sponsorship, as such, but commission may be paid as a result of affiliate links. Some commission services require clear and same-page disclosure of affiliate links being paid-for links, so how much disclosure is necessary may depend on the scheme(s) a website owner signs up for (ie there may be different rules depending on country).

      I’m sure if you look at the ‘Terms’ link you will see information about commission payments etc. I have found ISPreview to be fair in covering all sorts of ISPs including many with no commission scheme (where some other ‘comparison’ sites fail to list dozens (perhaps 100-200?) alternative, smaller, ISPs, because there’s no money in it for them (and regardless of whether they meet ‘OFCOM’ criteria for fair comparison {of the ISPs they include}, the fact they don’t show dozens of other options, albeit unlikely to undercut the main players, makes them worthless, in my view, as a true comparison of what firms are offering services to the public).

      In short – I don’t think any ISPs sponsor ISPreview – and nor do some get ‘extra’ promotion. (Though I suspect some smaller ones should try a promotional deal, and let ISPreview know, for some free publicity – where they may be missing out – but then again, compared with the ‘free for a year’ type deals, other offers might appear minimal in terms of savings… shame that smaller ISPs aren’t likely to be able to offer headline grabbing discounts like TT, Sky, etc.)
