Absolutely rubbish product with extremely poor customer service with stroppy staff. Changed from EE circa six months ago purely for commercial reasons. Service has never managed to achieve the stated speeds. Spoke to no customer service frequently only to be told to make minor changes and wait two weeks for no change. Please save yourself from frustration and pick another provider!

Midlands Plusnet  
Wow, probably the worse company I have ever dealt with. The perception is all great, they have great marketing skills and brand perception...BUT yes a BIG BUT...they are rubbish. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME with Plusnet,

Reason:
1. 18 month contract: in there contract it states that if there is any probelms these will be retified within 30 days. However its falsh advertisement of;

a. Broadband connection is so poor, it goes on and off when it wants to
b. So I upgraded to Fibre £34,99 for exactly the same thing.
c. They got an enginneer out, improved for 1 day after 5 days of no internet
d. Was on the phone to them every week, they just pass you around like parcel parcel, yes parcel parcel
e. there customer service is like a washing machine g. f. they dont want you to leave, if you say its false advertisement they go on about there 30 day policy blah blah.
g. then pass you around customer service again like parcel parcel


In the end they sent me a letter saying I owe them £148.00. But do you know what, I would rather pay them then still be with them. I am now happy with SKY best Fibre you can get never had one probelm, not 1. So Hip Hip Horray to SKY and please do not waste you time with Plusnet. Google the best line is defo SKY, and SKY own BT btw.

Hopefully can help as many people out to not waste there precious time. Got with SKY or BT. Forget Plusnet

Been with Plusnet for many years now on their top tier package but have noticed a gradual decline in the level of customer service.
The final straw came when recently I contacted them to report an issue that I was having sending emails. The agent immediately dismissed my problem, was unwilling to engage a member of the email technical team, was very impolite - and then closed the chat! This is despite the fact I explained that Plusnet accidentally put a block on my sending emails previously so there was already a history of poor technical service.
It's sad to see, what used to be a quality service provider, erode their customer service but I for one will now be moving away from Plusnet.

dorset Plusnet  
I'm on standard broadband. Plusnet made me wait over a week before I could connect. Then they make you wait longer whilst the 'broadband stabilises'.

I gave it a few days and the result is that sometime I get 6mbps, sometimes I get 1mbps, sometimes I get nothing at all.

It became very clear from the start that this is how it's going to be for the length of my one year contract. So I called to cancel within my 14 "cooling off" period. But because I'd had to wait to connect 16 days had passed before I'd started my contract even though this was long before I'd even been connected. First front line customer service guy was great. Very helpful, but he had to pass me to a different team who are trained to be rude and aggressive.

Despite arguing I've got nowhere. Up and down connection and generally slow. Spotify is reasonably OK. Viewing Web sites is slow, pictures take a while to load. Streaming Amazon prime is slow and often pixelated.

I regret taking out anything with plusnet and now I've got to spend my evenings fighting this utterly awful company to get my money back.

Bristol Plusnet  
Outrageously raised prices for MMS.

DOES NOT support short code (short mobile number that utilities companies and banks use to contact you). If you receive a message from your bank that uses short codes (e.g., 456633), you will not be able to reply to that SMS, however important that might be.

Called the customer service and some guy responded in most surly voice that they don't support it - that is it.

Mobile network coverage is poor in many part of the UK and it is pathetic in Germany. So if you have Plusnet and thinking of taking your mobile abroad, think twice.

PLUSNET is the WORST broadband provider I dealt with so far. Their incompetent customer support changed my broadband dates four times in three weeks. Customer support no idea what they are talking about and provisioning department only know how to pass blame to openreach. They keep promising false activation dates. Feeling like a stupid for signing up with them and leaving nowtv.

This used to be a reasonable company, but for the last 4 months they have been a disgrace. My monthly bill has rocketed by £15.00 per month and my speed decreased, all because they recommended a new contract package. Despite numerous phone calls and 4 months to put things right thwy have done nothing, so I am off to another provider

Broadband compensation

Automatic compensation for loss of broadband service goes live from today

Posted on 2019-04-01 16:56 in News TalkTalk Zen Plusnet BT EE Sky Vodafone Virgin Media Hyperoptic

A new voluntary code introduced by Ofcom goes into effect today. This scheme means that the broadband providers who have signed up will have to reimburse customers in the event of their broadband or landline phone service being down for longer than two days. Here's what you need to know.

The compensation you can expect

  • Delayed repair following loss of service - if a fault takes longer than two days to fix, you can expect £8 for each day after that period that your broadband is not repaired
  • Missed appointments - if the engineer does not turn up or your appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours of notice, you can expect £25 per missed appointment
  • Delays with the start of a new service - if your broadband does not go live on the agreed date, you can expect £5 for each day of delay, including the missed start date

Homes and small to medium businesses who choose to use residential broadband are eligible for compensation on this scheme, and you should only need to report the fault for compensation to be paid out automatically.

To qualify for compensation, faults must not be of your own making (for example, your problem is down to your own wiring and equipment, you shove a spade through a vital cable on your property, or you're not at home for an engineer visit). You're also due compensation in the event of extreme weather causing problems and third-party incidents that contribute to the delay of repairs.

The providers taking part

Originally BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media and Zen signed up to the agreement back when it was proposed in 2017. Since then EE, Hyperoptic, Plusnet and Vodafone have also signed up, accounting for more than 95% of broadband and landline customers in the UK. While most of these providers will be participating in this scheme from today, Hyperoptic and Vodafone will start automatic compensation later this year, and EE should be ready to do so next year.

Find more information in Ofcom's press release.

Ofcom implement new Voluntary Code of Practice for broadband speeds

Posted on 2019-02-28 18:23 in News Daisy KCOM Lothian Broadband XLN Telecom Sky BT Virgin Media TalkTalk Plusnet EE

From tomorrow, 1st March 2019, a new Ofcom Broadband Speeds Code of Practice goes into effect to promote Fairness for Customers in the broadband market. The previous home broadband Code has been in force since 2015, but last year's changes to the advertising of broadband speeds have prompted a series of improvements.

The key changes to the Code are:

  • More realistic speed estimates - Providers need to advertise speed estimates that are relevant, and must display an 'average speed' that at least 50% of their customers can get during peak hours, between 8pm and 10pm.
  • Tell you your minimum guaranteed speeds at point of sale - Before you commit to buying, you should be told the minimum dowmload and upload speeds you can get, so you know what to expect, whether you have an actual speed problem, and if you have the right to terminate your contract.
  • Improving your rights to leave your contract early - Providers will have 30 days to fix your speeds, and if they're unable to do so they must offer you the right to downgrade or to terminate your contract without penalty. This now includes customers on bundled packages, such as landline and TV services.
  • These rights apply to all cutsomers regardless of the technology - Previously the rules only covered customers on standard broadband over copper landlines, or 'part-fibre' Fibre to the Cabinet products. Now they apply to 'full fibre' Fibre to the Premises/Home technologies as well, including services that use the Openreach (BT Group) telephone network and Virgin Media's cable network.

The updated Code remains voluntary, so Ofcom won't have the power to force all broadband providers to comply. However, most of the major providers have signed up, in fact Ofcom believes Code complaint providers currently serve around 95% of home broadband customers.

Many of the smaller providers haven't signed up on the basis that the implementation of the technologies needed are too impractical and costly for them to make it viable at this time. The principles of the Code have also been criticised by one small provider. It should also be noted that, although the Code applies to all sales from 1st of March onwards, Ofcom won't be testing the compliance of the rules until 2020 to give the signatories time to implement the changes.

The providers who have signed up for the new 2019 Voluntary Codes of Practice are:

  • BT
  • Daisy
  • EE
  • KCOM (Hull Area)
  • Lothian Broadband
  • Plusnet
  • Sky
  • TalkTalk
  • Virgin Media
  • XLN

BT, Daisy, TalkTalk and Virgin Media have also signed up for this to cover Business customers, with KCOM and XLN sign expected to be compliant in the near future.

Plusnet Broadband Buyers Guide - Is Plusnet right for you?

Can I get Plusnet?

Plusnet is owned by BT and benefits from BT’s network covering most of the UK. With a good 95% of homes covered, you should be able to get Plusnet broadband

However, while coverage is not an issue, it's important to know that Plusnet do charge different rates depending on where you are in the country. If you're in what Plusnet classify as a 'low cost area', where other providers have also installed their equipment at your local telephone exchange and there's lots of competition, you will get your broadband at a cheaper price. If, however, you're in a non-low cost area you'll pay in the region of 50% more each month. Plusnet's price areas are not arbitrary, they're based on market classifications provided by Ofcom.

The good news is that you're unlikely to be affected by this unless you're in a remote rural area. Plusnet say that 99% of the homes they cover are in low cost areas. You can find out if this applies to where you live by using our postcode checker.

What packages are available?

Plusnet offer three core broadband packages in a variety of configurations. You can choose your length of contract, and also get them with or without a phone line.

These are the three basic Plusnet broadband deals:

  • Plusnet Unlimited - unlimited standard broadband with an average speed of 10Mb
  • Plusnet Unlimited Fibre- average download speeds 36Mb, average upload speeds 9Mb, unlimited usage
  • Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra - average download speeds 66Mb, average upload speeds 18Mb, unlimited usage

All three deals are unlimited, with no traffic prioritisation. For each one you can choose between a contract of 12 months or 18 months, and you can get the Unlimited deal on a 30-day rolling deal with no contract. While you might expect the longer deal to work out cheaper, this isn't always the case. Offers that Plusnet run regularly may actually make the 12 month contract cheaper. If you go for the no-contract option, that is more expensive, and comes with a much higher activation fee of £50.

All the deals have a fixed price guarantee, so the price of either your broadband or line rental will stay the same for the length of your contract.

Plusnet Broadband comes with a phone line and line rental as standard. But if you've got a phone line from a different company and would like to stick with that, you can choose to take Plusnet without line rental. This works out cheaper each month, although is subject to a higher £35 activation fee. The important thing to note here is that you do need to get a phone line from someone. Even if you don't use your landline phone you still need a line, since that's how the broadband connection enters your home (even on fibre).

Plusnet offer the option to add a phone service to any of these packages. All Plusnet Broadband Calls packages come with Plusnet's basic line rental only package, where you only pay for the calls you make, but you do get free calls to other Plusnet customers and Plusnet support. For an extra £4/month you can upgrade to Evening, Weekend and Mobile calls, and for £8 a month you can upgrade to Unlimited UK and Mobile calls. Finally, you can upgrade to Plusnet International Anytime 300 for an extra £8/month, which comes with free inclusive anytime calls to UK landlines and 300 inclusive anytime minutes to 35 international destinations as well as 25% off top international call destinations outside of your 300 minutes. Mobile calls aren't included in this.

You need to pay line rental to Plusnet with all packages with a calling plan. This cost is included in the advertised price, not charged separately, although you can save on line rental fees by paying for a year up front. Plusnet's broadband-only packages still require a phone line, but you have the choice of staying with your current phone provider or choosing another supplier that suits your needs or beats Plusnet's prices.

Lastly, you can add a subscription to BT Sport for a price starting at £5 a month, depending on whether you want to watch it through an app, a YouView TV box, or have it added to your Sky satellite service.

Which package should I choose?

An important first question to ask yourself is whether you need the speed of fibre if you can get by with standard broadband speeds.

The extra speed is indeed much faster and thus a tempting prospect, but there is no point paying for it if you’re not going to use it. Plusnet’s ADSL speeds averaging 10Mb are easily sufficient for most online activities including Skype calls and downloading music. However, this is not the case if you live far enough from a telephone exchange that your ADSL speed would be very low.

It would also be worth getting fibre if you are a heavy downloader, or regular gamer, as these are both activities that would benefit from the extra speed, reducing download times and preventing lag in games. Fibre packages will help also prevent slowdown in households with many heavy internet users, such as student flats or homes with large families, where one connection has to be divided between several people.

If you're a heavy uploader, perhaps because you share your own YouTube videos or use cloud backup and sync services, or if you're in a busy household where several people may be streaming HD video at once, then you may benefit from the upgrade to Unlimited Fibre Extra offering up to double the download speed and almost 10 times the upload speed.

Points to consider before you choose

  • How far do you live from a BT telephone exchange, and will this be a problem for your ADSL speeds?
  • How many people will be using your broadband connection at any one time, especially for heavy downloading or online games?
  • Are you a heavy uploader, or someone who uses cloud backup and sync services?
  • Is fibre optic broadband available in your area?
  • Is the extra expense of fibre broadband really worth it for you?

Compare all Plusnet deals

What do I get when I sign-up?

It's always good to know upfront what you'll get when signing up with an ISP so you know what you can enjoy for free, or to budget for any extras you may want.

  • Wireless router - All new customers signing up to Plusnet will receive a free wireless router. On the Unlimited deal you get an N-rated Hub Zero, and on the fibre plans you get the more up-to-date Hub One. This is AC-rated, giving it a stronger signal over a greater range. If you wish to use your own router instead, Plusnet will allow that provided you check with them that it is compatible.
  • UK-based customer service - Unlike most other providers, Plusnet’s customer service is entirely based in the UK, and is available between 7:30am and 10pm, 365-days a year to help with any queries you may have. All Plusnet phone customers get free calls to Plusnet's customer service.
  • Plusnet Protect - Powered by McAfee, Plusnet Protect is Plusnet’s internet security package free to Unlimited Fibre and Fibre Extra customers, available for an extra £2 per month for standard Fibre after a three month trial. Up to 7 PCs can be protected through its anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing and firewall tools. It also allows you to set parental controls to filter what children using the internet can access.
  • Static IP available - Customers on Unlimited Broadband and Unlimited Fibre Extra can add a static IP address for a one off payment of £5.

What are the benefits of Plusnet?

The benefits offered by an ISP may be what seals the deal in your decision to buy a package from them.

  • Cost - Plusnet is among the cheapest of the large providers, making it a good choice for those on a tight budget or those who just like to save money. If you want standalone broadband without bundled line rental and calls, Plusnet tends to be the cheapest available.
  • One month contracts - Unlike many other providers, Plusnet offer one-month rolling contracts. Once you have paid a free to activate the service, you only need to give 14 days notice to cancel, meaning you are not committed to long contracts lasting a year or more. This is ideal for those with short tenancy agreements, students, or those who may need to move with minimal notice.
  • Standalone broadband - Plusnet are one of the few large providers to offer standalone broadband packages, meaning you don’t need to take your line rental or calls from Plusnet in order to use their broadband service. Plusnet's phone bundles are good value and you can keep your existing phone number, but if you'd prefer not to switch phone supplier or have found cheaper options elsewhere, you have the flexibility to do this with Plusnet broadband.
  • Unlimited usage on all deals - There's no reason to choose between price and usage allowance when Plusnet's entire range of broadband products come with no limits on the amount you're allowed to download or upload each month.
  • Value line rental - If you take a package including line rental, you can cut the cost of this by paying a reduced price for a year of Plusnet line rental up front, producing a significant saving over the monthly rate.

What are the drawbacks of Plusnet?

Let's face it, not everything can be perfect, and even the best deals may have a downside.

  • Few extras - Unlike many of the larger providers, Plusnet does not offer much in the way of extras like wi-fi hotspot access, online TV (apart from a BT Sport subscription) or a home move service. However this is reflected in the cheaper cost, and it does not affect the core broadband service.
  • No contract option is more expensive and not available with Fibre - 1 month contracts cost £2.50 per month extra, have a £25 installation charge and don't qualify for most Plusnet special offers. Only available on Standard (ADSL) products, not Fibre.
  • Higher rural prices- Although Plusnet is owned by BT, their packages are still cheaper in some areas than others. The cheapest prices tend not to be available in rural and remote areas - although due to the Ofcom market classification mechanism this is tied to, Plusnet are still likely to be the cheapest or among the cheapest stand alone broadband on any exchange.
  • Complaint levels - Ofcom figures show that Plusnet are in the middle of the complaints table covering the eight main broadband providers. However, the actual number of complaints is above average.
