Plusnet's 512Kb Broadband @ £14.99

Posted: 01st Jun, 2004 By: MarkJ
PlusNet has begun offering its capped (1Gb) 512Kbps broadband ADSL service for just £14.99 per month, with the 2Mbps option coming in at £31.99! The provider also has a dig or two at BT's activation fee, which it hopes to see removed:

PlusNet throws down broadband gauntlet!

Real Broadband for a very real price!


PlusNet is proud to announce the full launch of its new residential broadband products. The popular UK ISP has this week unveiled a fresh new look at www.plus.net to complement the launch of their new high-speed broadband product. Broadband Home is now available, starting from just £14.99 per month for a 512k connection and £31.99 per month for a 2Mb connection.

"With PlusNet you get real broadband without a sting in the tail. Other providers are either not delivering a true broadband experience or are not giving users all the support and functionality they need," said Marco Potesta, Marketing Director of PlusNet.

The Broadband Home package starts from just £14.99 per month, allowing 1GB of data traffic. This can be increased when needed (charged at only £1.50 per GB), allowing true flexibility, and Broadband Home Premier at £21.99 per month provides a great value option. For those wanting the blistering performance of even higher-speed broadband, you can choose a 1Mb connection available from only £23.99 per month or a blindingly quick 2Mb connection from just £31.99 per month.

Importantly, all of these services are delivered over the IPStream broadband network, which consistently delivers reliability and a high quality of service for end users. Historically, the Datastream network used by many other providers offering 'cheap' broadband, has presented quality of service difficulties when managing large numbers
of customers. Capacity based charging over IPStream enables product flexibility over a quality broadband network that can support millions of users.

New customers will need to buy a broadband modem and will also need to pay a £58.75 activation fee. Those already on broadband with another provider can move to PlusNet free of administration or set-up charge.

"The only barrier to full take-up for broadband now is the exorbitant activation fee that BT continues to charge all ISP's to get people onto broadband. We believe that broadband take-up could well double if this activation fee was removed, with the resulting service income far outweighing the lost activation fee income to BT," said Potesta. "We think its impossible for BT to justify charging £11 to move people from one broadband provider to another, this being a process that can be quite complex, whilst charging £58.75 to just switch someone on," said Potesta.

With PlusNet you get much more than just a connection. A wealth of added value services are provided as standard, such as unlimited email addresses, anti-virus and spam-protection, website hosting and local-rate dial access backup. With support provided 24 hours a day at local call rate, it's no wonder that more and more people every day are choosing PlusNet Broadband.
