Broadband ISP Plusnet Launch New 300Mbps UK Full Fibre Plan UPDATE

Thursday, Jul 20th, 2023 (12:01 am) - Score 6,256

Budget broadband ISP Plusnet will sometime today launch an additional Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) powered package for residential customers covered by Openreach’s UK network – “Full Fibre 300“, which as the name suggests is based on the network operator’s 330Mbps download tier.

As usual, all of their FTTP packages include unlimited usage, a new Hub Two wireless router (based off the BT Smart Hub 2), free activation and a 24-month minimum contract term. Sadly, all of these packages are data-only plans because Plusnet has so far opted not to launch their own IP based phone product, which could make it more tedious for some users to upgrade or switch.

NOTE: Openreach’s full fibre network covers over 11m UK premises, rising to 25m by Dec 2026.

Technically speaking, the “new” 300Mbps (average download speed) plan has actually been around in the small print of Plusnet’s web T&Cs since last year, but new customers couldn’t order it online until now. At the time of writing, the ISP hasn’t yet told us what their launch pricing will be, but the post-contract price is listed as £45.76 per month.

UPDATE 3:05pm

Plusnet has confirmed that the discount price for the first contract term on this package has been set as £31.99 per month.

    Comical that the post contract price is lower than what they try and charge for FTTC when your contract expires.

    1. Avatar photo Matt says:

      Not really? it’s almost like they want you to recontract onto an FTTP product! (where available) or refresh onto an FTTC contract until it is.

    2. Mark-Jackson Mark Jackson says:

      One problem there for Plusnet customers is that the ISP aren’t offering a phone service when you re-contract, because it’s all SOGEA now, and they don’t seem to plan on offering a digital voice product. This makes the re-contracting process / pricing unclear and tedious, so it may be better to switch to a different ISP.

      That is why I left, they could not offer me a decent price for FTTC at the end of my contract, just went on about FTTP, which I did not want. As i said to the bloke on the other end of the phone, if I am going to go through the hassle of getting FTTP then I may as well get the alt network that is around here, that offers a better network and is cheaper.

      Plusnet is running into the danger of too many packages. For your average consumer fast->faster->fastest is pretty simple to understand and can figure out which one they want by how busy their household is and how much they are willing to pay for internet.

    Erm.. 300 has always been around what are they on about? I’ve been selling it day in and day out for the past year as I work on the COT FTTP team! This is NOT new! it’s always been 74/150/300/500/900 where FTTP is available.

      Plusnet should offer this:

      – Full Fibre 74 – £24.99
      – Full Fibre 145 – £26.99
      – Full Fibre 300 – £28.99
      – Full Fibre 500 – £30.99
      – Full Fibre 900 – £32.99

    2. Mark-Jackson Mark Jackson says:

      Plusnet announced this today, and the article already covers it existing prior to this date (i.e. it didn’t pop up for new customers via their online ordering system until today).

      I should win the lottery Phil, but it aint gonna happen anytime soon.

  5. Avatar photo Mark Beharrell says:

    That’s great and all but still on FTTC here and the Tranche date is TBD.

    I’ve had 300mps since January off plusnet so it’s not a new thing ?

  7. Avatar photo Stephen Ledbury says:

    Plusnet, I would keep well clear of these Cowboys Plusnet has fallen apart. Everyone’s leaving the Broadband absolute rubbish. I’ve had trouble with them since last January. I’ve had lots of money out of me and all I’ve had is rubbish broadband connection if I was anyone I would go back to BT

    1. Avatar photo Yorkiebar says:

      You know BT and Plusnet are essentially the same company right ?

    2. Avatar photo William Gange says:

      I’ve been with plusnet for many years and find it difficult to understand how you can call them cowboys, when I have had a problem (which is very very rare) it has been dealt with in a very efficient manner. I believe I have had two bb problems in the last 10 years. If there is a complaint its that they are very expensive for a phone and BB service.

    Setting up your own phone line is not trivial, but not difficult – I have a landline setup via Sipgate, you just need an ATA and there is no monthly fee, it’s PAYG

    1. Avatar photo Anonymous says:

      I have SIPGATE but its closed to new residential folk. This is the trouble, less and less SIP providers outside of business charges now.

  9. Avatar photo Paul Sanderson says:

    I set up with Virtual Landline to retain my number when I moved house last month. Great service, real help desk (with a phone and everything!). I use a Gigaset handset which connects to their SIP, but they sell a preconfigured ATA if you just want plug-and-play.
    Thoroughly recommend!
