UK ISP PlusNet Preparing New Broadband Packages for April 2010

Posted: 17th Mar, 2010 By: MarkJ
plusnetFixed line broadband internet provider PlusNet has leaked preliminary details of its new and revamped range of packages for April 2010. We have has also informed that customers who order an existing package before 29th March will get a price freeze for the next 12 months.

The changed packages will be introduced on 12th April and there will be a new Pro product going live too. Please be aware that the details we're posting below are just a sneak peak and could still be subject to change.
Plusnet Value

* Market 1&2: £6.49 for 3 months, then £12.99 after
* Market 3: £6.49
* 10GB usage allowance between 8am – Midnight
* Free usage between Midnight – 8am
* Dynamic IP only
* Post-pay £5 per 5GB
* Up to 8Mb (ADSL Max) Speeds


Plusnet Extra (replaces Premium)

* Market 1 & 2 £11.49 for 3 months, then £17.99 after
* Market 3 £11.49
* 60GB of usage allowance between 8am – Midnight
* Free usage between Midnight – 8am
* Up to 20Mb (ADSL2+) where available
* Post-pay £5 per 5GB
* Static IP available


Plusnet Pro

* Market 1 & 2: £16.49 for 3 months, then £22.99 after
* Market 3: £16.49
* 20GB usage allowance from 8am – Midnight
* Free usage from Midnight – 8am
* Up to 20Mb (ADSL2+) where available
* Static IP available
* Post-pay £5 per 5GB
We note that the Value package is more or less unchanged and will see a slight price rise, similarly the new Premium package replacement (Extra) is also slightly cheaper, though the 80GB usage allowance has been swapped for 60GB.

By contrast the new Pro package details appear to charge significantly more for significantly less than Extra, which leads us to believe that the information for this package is incorrect or missing something. Take the Pro info. with a pinch of salt until PlusNet's official reveal.

PlusNet typically charges based off Ofcom's "Market" 1, 2 and 3 classifications. This is directly connected to BT and its regulation. For example, customers living in Market 3 areas have plenty of ISP choice and thus services are usually cheaper.
