UK ISP Plusnet Cuts Unlimited Fibre Broadband Prices for Jan 2017

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 (8:29 am) - Score 1,050
plusnet uk

Budget ISP Plusnet has today slashed the prices of their unlimited ‘up to’ 38Mbps and 76Mbps “Fibre” (FTTC) based superfast broadband packages for the first 18 months of service, which reduces the monthly pricing (inc. Line Rental) to just £23 and £28 respectively for new customers.

The discounted rate is only available to order until 24th January 2017 and subscribers will receive an unlimited usage allowance, wireless router (£6.99 postage), phone line rental, Parental Controls (network-level filtering) and UK-based customer support. On top of that a number of optional UK calling add-ons are available (e.g. Anytime calls) at extra cost.

Unlimited Fibre
* Download speeds of up to 38Mbps
* Upload speeds of up to 1.9Mbps
* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £23 a month for 18 months (£32.98 thereafter)

Unlimited Fibre Extra
* Download speeds of up to 76Mbps
* Upload speeds of up to 19.5Mbps
* 18 Month contract

PRICE: £28 a month for 18 months (£37.98 thereafter)

We should point out that both a 12 month and 1 month contract option are also available at extra cost for the above packages. Separately Plusnet’s standard ‘up to’ 17Mbps capable unlimited broadband service is currently being offered for a reduced price of £20.49 per month on a 12 month contract term. While we like to see a choice of contracts, some of the pricing and special offers are currently more confusing than they need to be.

For example, a 12 month term on the standard 17Mbps option is £20.49, but oddly on the 18 month term this actually rises to £22.50 and even the no contract option is £22.50.. for 12 months. Talk about an odd way of promoting the same product and TalkTalk has had a similar problem since it introduced multiple contract choices. Normally a longer contract should equate to lower prices.

As usual the offer prices are only available to those who live within Plusnet’s “low cost area“, while those outside of this (roughly reflecting the final 9% of UK premises in more rural and digitally disadvantaged areas) will find that they have to pay a fair few £ more. Finally, if you need a new phone line installed at your property then there’s a £49.99 installation charge.

    In circumstances of a looming Brexit, it seems fairly logical for them to offer lower price for short term only. After a year, you could be seeing broadband at £30 everywhere and crying for not taking out a longer contract at £22.50

      It will come a time when ISPs stop loosing money, many have been operating a slim margin profit business for too long.

    @Alex: No problems, As for Plusnet like all ISP’s they are ok if everything is working as intented , but if it ain’t and your issue is a bit taxing for them, you will be lucky to get a solution anytime soon , in the bb world you get what you pay for, their buisness modle is pile em high and sell em cheap, no quality at all

      @cyclope – Indeed, to me it seems what all major ISP’s care about is who can say has the most customers, so they operate on a shoe-string profit margin and have terrible customer service in the process.

    Looked at Plusnet but keep having visions of endless spinning circles from woeful buffering on catch-up tv. Maybe their community forums have given me a tilted impression and for most its fine (?)
