ISP Plusnet Breaks Out Stronger Black Friday Broadband Deals

Plusnet-Hub-Two-Router

UK ISP Plusnet has today introduced new “Black Friday” focused discounts on their Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) based broadband and phone packages, which further reduce their monthly prices for the first 18 months of service and boost the bundled “Reward Card” (pre-paid Mastercard) to £75.

As usual these offers are only available to new customers, and they can expect to receive an included wireless router, phone line rental (standard call rates), parental controls (network-level filtering) and UK-based customer support. A number of UK calling add-ons are also available (e.g. anytime calls), albeit at extra cost. If you need a new line installed, then this will attract an additional £49.99 one-off cost.

Sadly, Plusnet still don’t offer any ultrafast broadband (100Mbps+) packages, but they are expected to launch some FTTP plans in the very near future. In addition, if you’re somebody who likes to get email from your ISP (rarely a good idea), then it may be best to consider a different provider until there’s some certainty (here).

    PN will never never bring out FTTP not within next five years! They always end up the last ISP to do so.

      It’s depressing waiting on Plusnet. I’ll be leaving as soon as my contract is up

      80% of the UK will be in FTTP coverage in 5 years, and of that, most will be in “stop sell” for copper services. So unless Plusnet wants to go completely to the wall, they will be forced to sell FTTP, and soon.

      I am with plusnet on a 36Mb/s FTTC connection and it to be honest does what I need, for the price I am paying, which is £23. My contract is up in January, and we are having a FTTP via Zzoomm being put through the city as I type this, it will come here to me around Spring of next year, costing £29 for 150Mb/s. So I will have two months at least paying at full rate to plusnet if I decide to go with Zzoomm. the thing is, if I can get a cheaper deal with plusnet for FTTC, I think I will go for it, I don’t need 150Mb/s and no doubt other people are in the same boat.
      So in reply to NE555, I doubt plusnet will go to the wall if they don’t offer FTTP, for a start some people just want a cheaper option, even if Plusnet do offer FTTP, loads of places still don’t have BT open reach FTTP infrastructure. The other thing is, Plusnet belongs to BT, so they will not go to the wall.
      don’t forget, there are still people using ADSL because it suits them, not many granted, but they are still there, not everyone need or want the super-duper high speed of FTTP or the higher price.

    The reason because Plusnet are cheaper budget ISP. This is why they will not bring any FTTP for the time being.

    1. Avatar photo Damian says:

      So are TalkTalk and Vodafone yet they offer it.

    2. Avatar photo sebbb says:

      But, the only budget ISP with static IPv4 for £5 one off. When I had FTTC that was the only reason for me to have them. Of course, billing was shambles and the online customer service awful…

    3. Avatar photo ad47uk says:

      But Damian, plusnet at least have a semi decent customer service, something that Talk Talk have no about, not sure about Vodafone broadband, but their customer service for their phone service is far below par.
      At least with Plusnet, the few times I have got in touch with them, they did something to try to sort out the problem, even if it was an out-of-reach problem, I mean open reach.

      “plusnet at least have a semi decent customer service”

      Ha ha ha ha ha

    5. Avatar photo ad47uk says:

      I did say semi decent, when I had problems with my broadband only working with an old openreach Huawei modem and not the new router they sent, they sent openreach 4 times to try to sort out the reason why, they could have just said, it is working so leave it as it is. Sadly openreach could not trace the issue, even at the cabinet they were having issues connecting their own equipment. Plusnet then sent me a zyxel router, which worked for a couple of weeks and then that failed, so I went back to the old modem and connected the Zyxel to that, using WAN.
      The connection is back to as it should be now and have been for almost a year, maybe longer, I presume Open reach have done something in the cabinet.

      Talking to anyone at Talk Talk is like talking to a brick wall, it really is, I thought BT was bad enough, but Talk Talk is worse unless they have improved in the last couple of years. I have chatted to them on behalf of other people.

      Not sure how long I will be with Plusnet, will decide if I am going to go with Zzoomm when the time gets closer, but to be honest, Plusnet is fine as long as they give me a good offer that is cheaper than Zzoomm. I really don’t need 150Mb/s and to be honest, IO really don’t want the hassle of them digging up my front garden.

    The focus is currently on the 85% Gigabit target for end of 2025 but talk of a larger 2030 date seem to be growing!

    Between 2025 and 2030 are more likely that Plusnet will offer FTTP 40/10, FTTP 80/20 are likely to be for this budget and cheapest ISP.

    I beg to differ I’m with John Lewis and they have been really attentive!

  5. Avatar photo Dave says:

    Been with plusnet for a while after poor service from talk talk and Vodafone. Had no problems whatsoever. Surely if you really were worried about speeds you wouldn’t be with plusnet anyway. When they get round to it which I’m sure they will I might upgrade, but I don’t see the rush.

  6. Avatar photo Bxl says:

    ad47uk: I recommend that just ahead of contract expiry, get some quotes elsewhere then negotiate quite a few £ reduction monthly from Plusnet. On basis you are considering leaving.

    1. Avatar photo ad47uk says:

      @Bxl, Oh yes, that is what I will do, but to be honest, Plusnet have been good and if they give me the same offer I have now I may stick with them, ok £29 for 150Mb/s both ways from zzoomm sounds good, and I am glad that it is coming here for people that will use the speed, but that is still about £6 more than what I am paying now, it is not a lot I know, but what is the point in paying out £6 more a month for something I don’t really need?
      Would I really notice the difference? Ok, if I get into this you Tube thing, which I want to do, but just have not found the time, then yes it is useful for uploading files, but that is about it.
