By: MarkJ - 26 April, 2006 (9:18 AM)

Plusnet has become the latest ISP to revamp its bundled voice and broadband packages in order to be more competitive with Carphone Warehouse's offer. The up to 8Mbps (line rental included) service costs from £20.99 per month and is based off a 1 month contract:

Unlike other competing broadband and calls packages, PlusNetís new package will be available nationwide to more than 99 per cent of the UK population, they are not reliant on limited Local Loop Unbundled (LLU)-enabled exchanges. This service will also be offered on a one-month contract whereas standard contract terms for similar products currently lock in consumers for at least 12 months.

The service, to be offered from 4th July 2006, will allow PlusNet customers to bundle their landline rental and a calls package as well as the companyís PlusTalk Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service, with their broadband connection. Package prices will range from £11 per month in addition to their existing broadband subscription. PlusNet will also launch Broadband Basic, a new entry-level broadband service priced at £9.99 per month, on 31st May 2006. Monthly subscriptions for the combined voice and broadband bundle will start at just £20.99 per month.

Customers can pre-register for the new bundled voice and broadband products with immediate effect, or sign up to the existing broadband services and add voice and line rental from 4th July. There will be a simple pick and mix approach where customers can choose one of three broadband packages and then add either PlusTalk Anytime for £11 per month or PlusTalk Anytime+ for £15 per month.
